Liz arranged a walk at Gabrielskloof and, since it included a lunch there, managed to get no less than 19 takers. This all goes to show that we are led by our stomachs!!
Nicolene was on hand to lead us and proved to be an excellent guide with her good knowledge of the farm and it’s viticulture. We walked through carefully nurtured vineyards and marveled at the harsh rocky soils that are favoured to bring out the best characteristics of the vines. We also traversed a high ridge where we meandered through the local fynbos which is so different to that which grows around Hermanus. We were therefore not well versed with many of the plants and identification was something of a problem.
