As the mist settles on the rolling green meadows and vineyards of Hooggelegen in the small region of Durbanville, settle down to wine tasting in the Cape Winelands. You can also sample local craft beers brewed by the cellar master as well as biltong and cheese platters. Also available are olives, olive oils and spent malt bread.
The on-site restaurant is named Ke-Monate, a Swahili word meaning “that’s nice”. Pizza and wine pairing is a favourite while there are many themed evenings such as Indian and Mexican. Picnic baskets are available to savour on the lawns as are exhilarating game drives on Hoogeberg Hill. Fauna in the area include eland, wildebeest, springbok, zebra, bontebok, dassies and a large array of birdlife. From the summit, you’ll be able to make out the harbour, Robben Island, Table Mountain and Simon’s town.
If you’re wondering about the name, that’s because one of the VOC signal cannons installed centuries ago still remains on the farm. You may even get a chance to fire the gun, letting it boom across the grounds and saluting the memories and legacy of this old family-owned winery.
