      ... wine. We had a Ploughmans lunch at the vineyard which was excellent. After that we visited an Ostrich farm which showed the whole process from chick to adult, we even saw ostrichs which were only 3 hours old. We had the chance to hold their eggs and sample the leather which they can provide. Following the talk we saw numerous male and female ostrichs, some people had the chance to feed them and there was even an opportunity to ride them, ...
