With my Mini Cooper in for repairs I have a BMW X1 Eco Sport available to explore the Overberg. Complements of Donford Helderberg in Somerset West my first beemer trip took me up Hemel-en-Aarde to Sumaridge Wine Estate. Beth Hunt launched her second book here this week. HERMANUS with photographs by brothers Johann and Kobus Kruger was published by Penguin Random House and is bound to be a winner with tourists and residents alike.
Taking me to Sumaridge and back the BMW X1 negotiated the sharp bends of the Hemel-en-Aarde road athletically and stuck firmly to the tarmac. The vehicle is easy to operate and the comfortable interior makes for a relaxing ride. A glass of Sumaridge Merlot was a good match for the smooth ride and now my only decision is … where to next? #roadtrip
