A visit to Môreson Wines (Franschhoek)

I recently went to visit Môreson Wines in Franschhoek. It's the perfect spot for bubbly lovers! They also make a fabulous Pinotage  – one of my favourites (see above)! The pinotage goes under the label 'The Widow Maker' and is a rich, heavy red wine with plum, black cherry and mocha flavour. It is also considered one of the Top 10 Pinotage’s in South Africa. I also love the newly released Miss Molly Petit Rose – a bubbly with delicious ripe pomegranate and fresh strawberries with just the slightest hint of orange peel.

What I didn't know was that they also have a spectacular orchid nursery, filled with wide varieties of beautiful orchids, from blush purple to crispy white and burnt orange umber.

While the wine tasting is spectacular and can be enjoyed in a sunny courtyard, the estate offers a stunning restaurant run by chef Neil Jewell, called Bread & Wine. He also offers bread-making, charcuterie-making and wine-blending courses...
