Jason's Hill winery







If you happen to visit the Slanghoek Valley, one of the first farms I recommend popping into is Jason's Hill (www.jasonshill.co.za). The winemaker, Ivy, is the most incredible, friendly person with very amusing stories.
Like the other farms in the area, there is a lot of rich history.
In the bistro upstairs, above the cellar, there are a collection of photographs, pocket watches and other knick-knacks that belonged to family members over the years.
Ivy makes really good wine. Her first ever was Shiraz, and so I immediately warmed to her.
We loved the wooded chardonnay, the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Jason's Creek red blend.
All wines are very good value for money when bought at the wine estate.
