Ridgeback Wines is situated in Noord Agter Paarl (basically, between Paarl and Wellington), and offers an array of truly excellent wines. I've been there twice now and my husband and I cannot find a single wine that we do not enjoy thoroughly. But, if I had to pick, my absolute favourites are the Viognier and His Master's Choice (85% Shiraz, 15% Mourvèdre).
|Incredible Chenin blanc! I could drink this all day!|
|Cabernet Franc - delicious red!|
|The lagoon/dam is the background with swans and geese dotted around, makes for a very tranquil setting while sipping wines all afternoon|
The Deck Restaurant is open six days a week and situated right next to the wine tasting centre.
The great thing about this arrangement at Ridegback is that you can do a wine tasting while eating lunch, so you can experience their array of delicious wines with relaxed dishes such as cheese platters, rump steaks, burgers and salads.
