We were sent to Stark Conde by a friend who works for Platters. We were totally taken by surprise by the Cabs, these were the best cabs we ever had in South African. The farm is beautiful in a valley almost in downtown Stellenbosch.

Just outside Jonkershoek Nature Reserve you will find this very nice place for lunch and wine tasting. It is not too far from central Stellenbosch, yet, I advise to have lunch after a wine tasting before moving on!
