Wine tasting in Hemel en Aarde Valley

February 24 2015


However, although it looked pristine we decided to move on to Creation, a little further up the valley as the wine tasting lunches had been recommended. This vineyard has not been around so long but they have not wasted time in establishing an excellent name and a wonderful selection of delicious wines, which we enjoyed sampling. Robert and I took on the sampling menu with a new wine, beautifully described by our very knowledgable server, accompanied by canapés designed to compliment each one. It was both fun and interesting and we both learned a great deal. Michael and Gina went for the anti pasta meat and cheese selection which did look wonderful and they clearly ate with relish. We had a beautiful orchid on our table and were amused to notice a chameleon, slowly moving about ridding the room of the occasional errant fly. She was beautiful and apparently prefers to live inside rather than run the gauntlet of the hungry birds who enjoy eating chameleons in the garden.

A definite must do if you are staying in the area.

We drove home on a more exploratory route through the undulating fields and farmland enjoying stunning views of wide open pastures and the massive Rocky Mountains, reminiscent of Scotland, that made up the back drops of this route.
