“Gonna take some time to do the things we never had...” • #youmaylucasthebride #honeymooning ———————
Sorry for the cliché Toto lyrics (or maybe Weezer lyrics?) but it’s the one-year anniversary of this magical day visiting #Stellenbosch in #SouthAfrica and the lyrics to “Africa” just felt right. 🖤 We loved this visit to the Cape wine country so much that we’re celebrating with a trip to #NapaValley this weekend!🍷 Who’s got recommendations? Looking for tasting rooms, restaurants, vineyards, everything! ———————
And then for everyone out there planning a trip to South Africa’s wine region — listing some of my favorites from Stellenbosch below! 👇🏼
• Waterford Estate — @waterford_estate: This is the gorgeous country classic; big driveway lined with trees, lavender everywhere, cozy fireplaces inside and nice patio seating outside if it's warm. Just a really lovely, inviting, traditional place. Do the chocolate pairing!
• Delaire Graff Estate — @delairegraff: Super boujie and beautiful — the family also owns a diamond business. The restaurant on property is amazing, so we made it our second stop for a long, lazy lunch and had wine pairings with our 3-course meal, which was absolutely perfect. They also have a tasting room if you don't want to do lunch (but the lunch was just absolutely incredible, highly recommend). The view of the mountains from their outdoor area is stunning.
• Tokara — @tokarawines: Stunning estate with art + installations everywhere. Tastings and deli and olive oil. If it’s chilly, snag a seat in front of the fireplace.
