Two days here now in Franschhoek and not been in a vineyard yet, apart from dinner at la Petite Ferme which was wonderful. However we have sampled a glass or two! We have now played our two games of golf in this area.
First game was at Stellenbosch Golf Club. Great clubhouse and fabulous pizzas, but course needed a bit of tlc. But we did have a good day out.
Today, Monday we played at Pearl Valley and it was fantastic. Beautiful clubhouse and really great and challenging course . We played with a member and his wife and they were good company. Enjoyed a good lunch with them afterwords.
Chose not to go out for dinner but a good bottle of Rickety Bridge Chenin Blanc in now being finished off. The vineyard is about half a mile from here. Getting a bit of practise for our wine tour tomorrow. We are out for the day on a wine tour with lunch booked at an extremely good restaurant in Stellenbosch.
Will keep you updated on the wines we sample!,
