The cool weather this morning was perfect for the beautiful hike up the kloof to the ruins on the farm. The hiking paths are very well sign posted and the route established by Frank Woodvine a few years ago, is very well maintained. It was exciting to walk through vine growth that had a different leaf shape and to learn that the Bosman family grow some of their rootstock on the farm which is grafted with many varieties of vines including vines that come from Sicily that can handle the the dryer and hotter weather that we are experiencing in South Africa.
The coffee after the hike in their tasting room was delicious and there was a great light lunch menu for those of us who need to escape our “village” that is filling up with happy holiday makers.
We also enjoyed the company of 2 younger walkers who had great smiles on their faces on the way down.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and much joy with your family and friends.
