The last photo post of our time in Cape Town. Cape Town in the wine capital of South Africa. I do believe that some of the finest wines of the world are produced here. On Sunday morning we left for the Paarl district to go on a wine route. Please note: I am NOT a wine drinker. This was our first wine tasting tour.
Our first stop was at Simonsig.
They have received many awards for excellent wines.
That is a face of a non-wine drinker. They would tell us that we would taste cherries, nuts...whatever...and all I could taste is dry vinegar. Forgive me if you are a wine lover...but rather give me a sherry or fruit juice.
Interesting weather frog at Anura.
The goat tower at Fairview.
The husband having fun :-)
We did wine and cheese tasting at Fairview...and things were a bit less sour here :-P
I actually found a red wine that I liked enough for my husband to buy. It was sweet. I love the light in this wine cellar , photo taken without a flash.
Even in winter the winelands are beautiful.
Then we moved on to something more to my liking. At the Spice Route they offered chocolate tasting.
All 75% dark chocolate...the way I like it. Would you believe that I have a palate for chocolate. No jokes. I could taste liquorice, plums, cherries, caramel...Who knew?
All the tastes found in the different chocolates, depending from which region the cocoa beans comes.
The husband and I then settled for coffee. All the wine was making us sleepy. Wynand and Nadia had another wine tasting at the Spice Route.
The outside wine tasting area. Here food and wine pairing is also done.
Some more fooling around.
