Happy Monday friends! How did your weekend go? I had a great weekend and really enjoyed our Saturday exploring the Hermanus wine route in the Hemel en Aarde Valley. This literally means Heaven and Earth in Afrikaans and it certainly is a beautiful and fertile valley. First we took a quick look around a new organic wine farm, Spookfontein, which has the most incredible views and setting. They are busy building a fantastic looking tasting lounge which I can’t wait to visit.

After that we drove further along the valley and visited Ataraxia Wine Estate. We enjoyed a lovely wine tasting there which I’ll share more about later in the week. The little piglets which had just been born in the week before were too cute and stole the show for me though! These are just a few snaps from the day…

  1. This region looks breathtaking, Lana. I especially like your shots of the barrels and the blooms. My weekend was good, thank you. Spent most of it working in front of the Olympics – gripping stuff!

    What a wonderful place, Lana! There is a beautiful vineyard I’ve wanted to visit in a long time and I simply have to make time this summer for a trip there. 🙂
