Snap a photo on the Biggest Chair in Africa at Rooiberg Wines on the way to the Robertson Wine Valley. Rooiberg Wines is about a 1 hour 30-minute drive out of Cape Town and it is extremely hard to miss as they literally have a massive red chair on the lawn right next to the highway which you can climb up! It’s quite high up and windy so hold onto your skirts and hats ladies!
Rooiberg Wines has a large tasting room, wine shop and restaurant with plenty of parking space out front.
Did you know that Rooiberg Wines serves the most amazing breakfasts for vegetarians and meals for kids too! It was a cold, windy day when I visited so the fireplace was very much welcomed!
After breakfast, I made my way through to the tasting room. You can casually get your wines from the wine tasting bar as you stroll around the wine shop or lawn area. Wine tasting is FREE!
The wines are good value for money. Rooiberg Wines is a large co-op producing even wine for premium retailer, Woolworths. I particularly think that the red chair wine is a delightful keep sake to remind you of your visit at the Biggest Red Chair in Africa. They have some great awarded wines too.
Lock and Key
Declare your love for your significant other by purchasing the red lock and key, signing it with a permanent marker and locking it onto the fence out front. Keep or throw away the key and your love will remain forever.
