We had a fantastic time at Fairview. Paula loved watching the goats, Grant and I thoroughly enjoyed tasting wines - we fell in love with their “Bored Doe” (actually we loved most of the red wines, but Bored Doe was our favourite, favourite) and we all really enjoyed the cheese tasting and having lunch in The Goatshed. We left laden with wines, cheeses and T-shirts… how touristy can you get!
Please hop over and have a look at Cooksister’s posts here and here, in which she gives lots of fascinating information about Fairview and explains how the estate came to have a range of wine intriguingly called “Goats Do Roam”.
On our way back to Cape Town we drove through Stellenbosch, stopping for a browse through Oom Samie se Winkel (Afrikaans for Uncle Samie’s shop) – a fascinating old shop, which truly reflects how locals used to trade 100 years ago.
I must mention that most of the photos taken on our Cape trip were taken by Paula – thanks babe, you did a splendid job!
