Here are a few pictures from last weekend exploring the wine region of Franschhoek, and the beautiful garden at Babylonstoren.
Franschhoek is packed with great vineyards, and the city has a wine tram that takes tasters on a hop-on/hop-off ride to a handful of them, many with cheese, chocolate or biltong pairings. Our favorite was probably the small, family-run Eikehof, where they let us taste a yet-to-be available bottle of Semillion, and literally draped Chas in blankets to keep him warm. It’s the little things.
We heard it is a must to visit Babylonstoren, and we were lucky to pop in and snag a table at their greenhouse cafe, which serves food from their farm. They have an incredible garden full of surprises that we’ll definitely be visiting again in summer.
