We visit Franschhoek each year when in South Africa and are pleased to be back and to catch up with the Wineries we buy from in this area.
Today our first visit is to Stony Brook. We are greeted by Joy McNaught who with her husband Nigel founded Stony Brook to satisfy their love of quality wines.
Whilst here we take the opportunity to explore different Vineyards with the hope of finding new wines to add to our stock.
There are over 100 Wineries in the Stellenbosch area, so getting a recommendation is always helpful and this is how we found Bellevue Winery.
Tasting treat at Clos Malverne
After three days staying with friends we get back on the Wine Trail.
We are at Clos Malverne to meet with Suzanne and decide on which wines to add to our shipment. Today we had a Tasting Treat a ‘Wine and Ice Cream Pairing Menu’ WOW this was something special and I will try and replicate on our return.
We are now staying at the most southerly area in South Africa,it is not Cape of Good Hope but Cape Agulhas where the Atlantic meets the Indian Ocean the coast is very rugged and the sea both dramatic and stunning.
We stock one wine from this area Black Oystercatcher and we are staying at the property.
