Joyous July! During an unusual bout of sunny weather during the Cape winter we visited Morgenster for the Winemag Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report, we witnessed the introduction of new cellar master Elunda Basson at Steenberg, visited the fabulous Old Road Co. in Franschhoek and brushed up on our wine knowledge with Winetech!

Old Road Co.

Our beloved Franschhoek also known as the French Corner of the Western Cape is often bustling with tourists. There is no shortage of things to do or leisure places to stay. Centuries-old vineyards adorn the valley and Cape Dutch architecture stands strong. For the nature lovers there is Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, with views overlooking the valley. But I was more interested in hanging out at Old Road Co. - Sheryl
