... for our first stop on the wine tour, La Brie. This winery was a tiny boutique winery with only a small vineyard, producing 45, 000 bottles of their wine a year. We sampled 5 of their wines for 40 rand (£2!) in an idyllic setting, vineyards and the mountains. The wines were nice but at 10:30am it didn't quite feel right!! We had an hour at each winery before the bus picked you up. This hour went quickly, with tasting and a cellar tour. We nearly forgot to pay ...

By now Jackie was really cold, she had about 3 gallons of water inside her wetsuit and decided she had had enough, but I was determined to see a shark underwater even if some people hadn't been in the cage yet.

We headed up over and around the mountain (I think) to Seaforth and a restaurant right on the beach – calamari night – all you can eat for R49 (about $7) – I have never eaten calamari like that – just melts in your mouth!! Home again past all the lights - a fairy tale indeed and collapsed into bed tired but ...
Today we tour the awesomely beautiful Winelands. Set in a valley backed by majestic mountains, rows of manicured vines and orchards stretch into a distance studded by lime-washed, often thatched, 300 year-old wineries built in the unique Cape Dutch style, seemingly mirroring the undulations of the surrounding countryside. Our first stop is the small town of Franschoek in a magnificent setting at the head of a valley, then to elegant Stellenbosch ...
