Day 149-Wine Tasting in Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch

[Rustenberg Wine Estate]

The sun is shining and the leaves turning pretty colours of yellow and red in the wine region of Stellenbosch. What a perfect day to go wine tasting!

I’ve been wine tasting in Cape Town before, at vineyards such as Delheim, Kanonkop, and even Groot Constantia, but each wine farm is just so unique in it’s own way. The Rustenberg estate was established in 1814, but the wine growing history actually dates back to 1682. The Cape Dutch homestead has now been restored, but not without preserving it’s colonial architecture. The old tennis court of the estate has been converted into an eleven circuit Chartres-style labrynth, while the twenty five meter long swimming pool has been transformed into a lily pond with koi fish. Sounds magical, right?

What better way to spend a Sunday than with friends, at a gorgeous wine estate, wine tasting, while enjoying this beautiful sunny afternoon!
