Slanghoek Valley, Wine Country


Slanghoek Valley is near Rawsonville. It's about an hour's drive from Cape Town and is on the Breedekloof wine route in picturesque wine country. Slanghoek is Afrikaans for "snake corner". I don't know if it's named after snakes in the valley or because the road snakes its way through the with mountains on either side.

We took a drive through Slanghoek on Mother's Day. Most of the photos I snapped while Hubby was driving and the scenery was zipping past. The weather was perfect and we even stopped to have a picnic. The picnic photos are posted on Amanda's Books and More, if you want to take a look.

There are two excellent wine estates with spectacular views in Slanghoek. One is called Jason's Hill and the other is Opstal. I will be sharing our latest wine tasting experience at Jason's Hill next week.
