Tulbagh Wine Valley - Part 4


Good Wines
Beautiful Views and
Interesting Art

Gute Weine
Schöne Ausblicke und
Interesante Kunst

Last autumn, Hubby and I visited the Tulbagh wine valley for the day with our youngest daughter, Amanda. Our favorite stop was at the Saronsberg Wine Estate. It was one of the best all-round experiences we've had with a wide variety of wonderful wines, a picturesque setting and an interesting art gallery.

Hubby took this photo of Amanda and
me next to the lady at the lake.

The lady at the lake is featured on the Provenance wine labels. The sculpture is by Angus Taylor and is titled, "From Earth From Water". She is Saronsberg's mascot and was sculpted with stones taken from the lake.

At Saronsberg, you will see works of art from a number of contemporary South African artists.

Art by Paul du Toit 1965

Saronsberg has a range of award winning wines. While Amanda entertained herself, we tasted some of the fine wines, which are depicted below.

  1. How fun! We haven't done a wine tasting in ages. Think I need to get the husband or girlfriends to remedy that! Thanks for sharing with us at Photo Friday!
