We enjoyed our wine tasting at Thelema, which is different from most wine tastings as they winery has two ranges so comparing the same grapes grown in slightly different terroirs is fascinating (Thelema v Sutherland). There's a lovely outdoor veranda with views over the pass...More

This is a must stop on the Stellenbosch wine route, they have fine examples of cabernet sav, the Sauv Blanc is also good. Sit on the terrace and overlook the vines, while the knowledgable staff enlighten you.
