Saronsberg… for the love of art and wine


We’ve had another quick day trip the other day.  I’ve been thinking of an angle on how to share these pics with you, but I am like a child who cannot keep a secret any longer.

Our destination was Tulbagh, more specifically;  Saronsberg Winery.

Without any further ado, here are the pictures of probably the most beautiful, relaxing wine cellar in the Western Cape.

I do not know the story of this cement/stone/brass woman, but I am sure it’ll be worth my while to find out.  Will share it as soon as I know…

View from the Tasting area…

Rustic and Modern, perfectly combined

Cobbled entrance to the Tasting Area and Cellar

The cellar is double volume with a private art collection upstairs.  For obvious reasons I didn’t take any pictures of this, but do yourself a favour – go and experience this absolute sense of tranquillity with a glass of the best pinotage EVER in your hands. It has been said by those in the know, that Dewaldt Heyns, the winemaker, is to be watched.  He’s approach to wine making is fresh, modern and exciting – perfectly in rhythm with the Saronsberg atmosphere.
