Hermanus wine route R320...


Welcome to a brand new wine route...The Hermanus wine route R320.


I did like the name of this wine...


Proteas and wine...what could be more "Cape"?


A view from the deck of Creation...where the opening ceremony was held


This on line auction fetched R3000.00...


Frieda Lloyd, who put our media tour together...many thanks!


A view over part of the Babylon mountain range


Some of the owners and Press contingent at the opening ceremony at Creation.


A pair of Blue Cranes, a rather unusual sighting


I would like to own a chapel like this one day


Percy Tours come highly recommended. There is very little that owner Percy does not know about the region...


The first of the day...


The first wine tasting of the day...


While the rest of the group had an early morning tasting, I spent time with Wolfgang,the winery dog.


The cellar at Bouchard Finlayson


Although the vineyard is called. "The Virgin"...


their wines have decadent if somewhat naughty names and label designs



The view from the gents loo.


This fine chocolate is made on the premises with only the finest imported beans...


The chocolate range compliments the Hamilton Russell wine range perfectly



We said goodbye to Route R320 and headed for our next destination, Schoone Oordt in the bustling metropolis of Swellendam
