Wine Tasting in the Overberg

Gansbaai showed itself from its best side with the sun beaming down. I was picked up with a quantum and together we set off to the town of Hermanus and the Hemel en Aarde Valley. It was Grootbos staff William, Lana, Bennet, Vivien and Lieben. The first stop on our little wine tour was Hermanuspietersfontein; here a former employee of Grootbos gave us a tour of the winery, which they rarely do. We got to taste five of their marvellous wines, my favourite a Rhone-style wine called “Die Martha”.
