Hi Pat

Welcome to the Cape Forums.

Agree with you that Riebeek Kasteel is a lovely place for a weekend or for a day trip from the city - just an hour's scenic drive.

We were there a couple of weeks ago on one of the many gorgeous sunny days this winter. Wine tasting at Kloovenburg and take home some of their lovely olive based products. Then lunch in one of my favorite Country Restaurants - Cafe Felix operated by Malcolm and Rochelle Bushell and Chef Steven Kruger from Cape Town's Opal Lounge.

Also like lunch at the Kasteelberg Country Inn right in the village - a lovely shady terrace ovelooking the central square. Later a must is afternoon tea on "the longest stoep in South Africa" at the colonial style Royal Hotel. The best scones that I have had in South Africa! I've diverted 100km driving down from the north just for afternoon tea!

2. Re: Visit the Magic Valley of Riebeek Kasteel

I just love Kloovenburg. Not just their wine (very good Shiraz) but their olives and their wonderful beauty products. I am planning a visit again in November on my way from Clanwilliam to Cape Town. I haven't yet ventured into the village but will do this time. I have read lots about it. Sounds like it is becoming a foodie destination? Made a note of the lunch recommendations - thanks VDC.

Any more winery recommendations for this area?


PS. my profile picture is outside Kloovenburg on a very hot day!
