17 May: Day Two in Stellenbosch

Today we have another Wine tour. This one is a hop on hop off bus where you can go to up to five vineyards. It’s a beautiful day, lovely day to be doing a vineyard tour.

The first stop was Simonsig where we had a bubbles tasting. Then Delheim Estate where we taste some very nice Chenin Blanc, then an amazing picnic lunch at Warricks vineyard with pate, crusty bread, cheese, salad, cheese cake, fruit and rose.

Then off to Remhoogte vineyard where we met a group from Scotland who are celebrating a 40th, previously they have done turning 40 celebration trips to Las Vegas and Prague.

Then the last vineyard of the day – L’avenir, which is next to a very nice lake. It was very nice relaxing in a bean bag by the lake watching the water flow past.

We had dinner at the Stellenbosch Hotel. Outside was a group of singers, and I was included in the group. Given my inability to hold a tune I just hummed and clapped my hands.

We shared a very nice Leaping leopard chennin blanc (had this previously in Arusha). I had a very nice lamb curry and deconstructed lemon meringue pie.
