Meet 101 of 800! Windfall wines in Robertson. About a 2-hour drive from Cape Town. it’s a small, family-run winery that is only open for bookings and tastings by appointment only. Take note that there is quite a long, dirt road to get to the farm, about 3km.
Wine tasting is hosted at the family home/estate which can also be booked out as a guest house too. Wine tasting is just R50 per person and you do get to taste quite a lot of wines. Be sure to book beforehand as wine tasting is by appointment only.
I particularly enjoyed their MCC, Grenache Rosé and a red blend called Barrel 41.
The Tasting Room
The ambience is extremely comfortable and intimate with a bar area, dining table, TV and couches by the fireplace. The host was also very nice to provide snacks such as cheese and crackers to go with the tasting. I guess it is very similar to enjoying an evening/afternoon at your friend’s house.
You will be pleased to know that Windfall also owns Windfall cottages. A series of beautifully coloured chalets smack bang in the middle of nowhere and just up the road from the tasting room. At night you can see the Milky Way and in the summer months, you can enjoy a swim in the swimming pool.
Sunsets and sunrises are the perfect treat! I enjoyed breakfast on the stoep accompanied by the sounds of birds as the sky raged a perfect shade of orange!
These self-catering chalet are perfect for family getaways. Each chalet has a braai area, a fully stocked kitchen, and the main room has an en-suite bathroom complete with fresh towels and soap. It’s not luxury, so think of it as a country getaway that strips life down to the basic comforts of living. Although there are indoor fireplaces, these are not allowed to be used and are in fact locked up.
I had a great time with a group of friends and would recommend this to other groups of friends or families in need of a quiet break away from the city.
