Days 7 & 8 – Franschoek and … You Guessed It, Stellenbosch Vineyards

Okay. So, I realize I never finished posting picture from our trip to South Africa. That’s because I’ve either been busy or lazy or some combination of the two. At any rate, on day 7 we went to another smaller area called Franschoek, known for its French influence. It was beautiful, with plenty of vineyards and a central part of the town with nice shops. We had the best meal of our trip here at a restaurant called La Petite Ferme. Other highlights were the cellar tour at La Cabriere and the wine tasting at La Motte … and the best cheesecake we’ve ever tasted at Hillcrest Berry Farm on the way back.

On day 8, the weather was looking a little questionable, so we decided to stick around Stellenbosch for … you guessed it, more wine tasting. I’m only including two pictures from this day because the weather was not the best outside for picture taking. But, we did get a chance to walk through one of the vineyards we visited.
