This was one of those days where we weren’t quite sure what to make of the weather and decided to pick a place at random. We decided to go down an unknown road off the R44. We found this little estate, Ridgeback Wine Estate.
At first it seemed rainy but then the sky opened up and the sun came out. We were too late for breakfast (they were still willing to serve us breakfast) so we decided on lunch instead. Hubby chose the Lamb Shank and I went for some pork fillets in a red wine sauce. The food was delicious and the service GREAT! We had a waiter with a smile and always ready with a joke that had us laughing all day.
I decided to explore the area around the estate and just loved the pond in the middle, the little waterfall, the animals in the pond and the fact that it had a kiddies play area with a jungle gym. Not only does Ridgeback wine estate have great family facilities but their red wine, especially the Merlot, was amazing! We are definitely visiting them again. 😉
