I came across a stunning wine and accommodation estate this past weekend just outside of Paarl.
The cottages date back to 1750 and the gables are some of the most impressive I have ever seen.
It's a good spot to stay if you want to explore the Paarl winelands as it is fairly central and easy to find.
I was visiting the estate for a private function and got to try two of their wines, the Pinotage and the Syrah, which I instantly fell in love with and continued drinking the rest of the evening. The wines are exported only, so not available anywhere in SA, but are available for tasting if visiting and staying over on the estate.
The cottages are surrounded by beautiful hydrangeas and walkways through gardens, making for a lovely romantic weekend getaway or family visit.
