from wheat fields to vineyards

Today I had a work appointment in Stellenbosch and it is a good hours drive from where I live in Philadelphia (Cape Town, SA…..) I always love the drive because I take all the back roads through farms, wheat fields and vineyards.

Imagine if your back garden was a wheat field or a vineyard…….. enjoy!

[one_half_last]To the wine farms of Stellenbosch[/one_half_last]

The drive takes me through the dairy farms and the wheat fields of the Swartland to the beautiful and famous wine farms of the Stellenbosch area – names like Simonsig, Nooitgedagt and Kanu are all well known wines we enjoy here and, I am sure, overseas too. And they are all along the way.
