The Robertson Wine Region - Part 1

Amanda loves going wine tasting. Of course, she's not old enough to taste any wine, but sometimes there is sparkling grape juice for the younger ones. One day at the mall, she asked me when we're going wine tasting again. As soon as we had a sunny weekend, we took her for a drive through the Robertson wine region. It was a lot of fun.

At Ann De Doorns, we bought wine and olives.
It was our first stop on the way to Robertson.

The Red Chair wines

We bought wine at Rooiberg and then had
brunch at the bakery next door. We also
bought bread to take home with us.

The South African settlers had similar gear
to those who settled in the New World.
