My family, boyfriend, and I just got back recently from the most magical trip to South Africa! Capetown has mountains, city, beach, safari land, and wine country all in one, which is absolutely incredible if you ask me. It definitely makes for one killer vacation.
Out of all of those amazing attractions, I can say without a doubt that our wine tour day was my favorite day. We visited four different wineries throughout the day and I loved every second of it: incredible views while sipping top notch wine? Bucket list for sure.
I've compiled photos from the four different wineries we visited with some fun facts we learned at each, check them out below!
Winery 1: Lunch with a view
Winery 2: Chocolate & Wine, the perfect pair
The creator of this winery decided to pair chocolate and wine because he said they each were luxuries that actually had health benefits...whatever you say, sir.
Winery 3: Port Wine & more chocolate!
Port wine is a fortified wine that leans towards the sweeter tastes. Typically a dessert wine, so it pairs excellently with chocolate as well! The room we sat in at this winery used to be a cement holding area for fermenting wine, which was really cool to see.
Winery 4: Sir Richard Branson's Winery (aka: the creator of Virgin Group, personally worth $5.1 billion)
I've been a wine drinker for years and am a total nerd, so getting to learn about how wine is made and all of the nuances that go towards creating a fantastic wine was so fun for me. Definitely going to hit up some wineries here in the states soon!
