    For the Love of Wine

    At this excellent wine bar and boutique, you can sample the output of Stellenbosch and beyond (tastings and wine by the glass start at R36), with craft beer and cheese platters (R95) also offered. If the wrap-around porch feels too inviting to leave, you can order from a few local restaurants to eat here.
