Any comments on my initial thoughts for a day wine tasting in Stellenbosch would be most welcome. I try to get a mix of red / white / perhaps bubbles and small producers to big names. Don't really like bumping into large tour bus groups though and like to have a chat in the tasting room.
Neil Ellis - had his wines in UK and really like
Le Riche - for cabernet sauvignon
Rustenberg - been here before and loved the wines and the setting
Then I tried to find somewhere for lunch. Want a relatively quick lunch stop, so Simonsberg, Jordan etc won't really suit.
Thought about Delheim, Morgenhof or Uitkyk for a picnic. Any other suggestions in the area?
Simonsig or Slaley
What do you think? Or are there wineries that I have missed out that are a must. Or should I look in other areas of Stellenbosch?
Will be doing Thelema, Tokara and Delaire on the way to Stellenbosch from Franschhoek
