Visit to Clos Malverne Stellenbosch
We have arrived in South Africa and the sun is shining, it is always difficult to believe we have left the UK in the middle of Winter and after a 12 hour flight we arrive in Cape Town, where it is 30 degrees and a hose pipe ban!
The first week of our trip is Holiday and we have met up with friends from Hampshire and today had lunch in one of our favourite restaurants Clos Malverne in Stellenbosch.
As I had my Birthday on the plane we decided this was the place to celebrate - they do a magnificent 4 course lunch where they pair each food course with one of their delicious wines. The view from the restaurant is beautiful and looks over the vineyard.
What a perfect way to spend our first day in SA.
No wine purchased today – just enjoyed being a tourist but don’t worry we will be back here in a couple of weeks time to re-stock on their wonderful fizz!
