An afternoon visit to Durbanville had me discovering the many options for wine tastings in very close proximity to Cape Town and our international airport.
A beautiful map that makes the drive to the Durbanville wineries easy to navigate and contact helped a great deal. First stop was De Grendel. Slick but quick to tell us that the kitchen is closing soon. Rather than offering a tasting we were asked how we could be helped. How about offering the options? When ordering a glass of Chardonnay again no option was given. Rather the R80 p glass reserve version was served.
Next up was Durbanville Hills. Anticipating the efficiencies of big Distel business I was still surprise to see the different options and spaces available. Manned with staff dressed in grass green t-shirts it was inviting and helped out with a great lunch.

So I guess De Grendel is to be avoided?
I’m uninpressed. Will rather discover the other lesser known wineries. Will have to visit Meerendal as never been there and also go to Diemersdal again.
