The Cape Winelands is all about wine tasting, right? Well, yes, but if you go with Explore Sideways it could also include meeting a wine maker, a cellar tour, chocolate and wine pairing. Or all of the above!
Priding myself on knowing the best that the Winelands has to offer, since the opening of the Grand Dedale near Wellington I have been itching to get there! So when the opportunity arose to head there for a romantic night out of the city, we were in our car faster than you can say “I do”.
Situated in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, the Spier Estate really is a destination in itself. Not only do they offer award-winning wine, luxury accommodation and a variety of dining experiences but guests are able to touch a cheetah, stroll through the craft market, get up close and personal with an eagle, go for a walk, ride a horse or simply marvel at contemporary South African art in all forms.
