South Africa is well known for its incredible wine. And we were prepared to try them all…however the Robertson Wine Valley has over 50 wineries and most of them offer free wine tasting! Trying to narrow it down to which ones to visit was a tough choice, but since The Rosendal Winery also had a full service day spa, using products made from local wine grapes, the choice was easy! Wine and cheese tasting followed by an wonderful massage…it was a perfect combination! The Rosendal Winery also has a nice restaurant and accommodations…the perfect place for a wine weekend getaway!
We also checked out the Robertson winery & Rietvallei winery in Robertson before heading to Stellenbosch. We enjoyed the spectacular scenery along the way and stopped at a few wineries in the Stellenbosch area as well. The wine lands of South Africa are definitely worth a visit! We tasted some amazing wines…most of the wineries each had their own Pinotage, a signature South African red wine.
