This week’s Sunday photo features the beautiful Lourensford Wine Estate.
A couple of months ago we visited Lourensford Wine Estate. Situated in Somerset West and is approximately 50km from Cape Town. Being one of the oldest wine estates in Somerset West, this estate is full of rich history and scenery.
Welcomed by scenic splendour. Once you enter the gates; the beauty of the place stares back at you. Majestic trees fill the side of the road leading to the estate.
The estate has beautiful landscapes with lush gardens, green lawn, rose bushes, ponds and fountains. Walking and exploring the scenery is a must.
This estate does not just produce wine but it has bee hives, craft beer, coffee roastery, art gallery, fly fishing,fruit plantations, lifestyle centre and spa, function venue, a Montessori school and a forest which are famous for mountain biking and hiking.
The Millhouse Kitchen is the restaurant on the estate. The restaurant is child-friendly and offers a children’s menu and outside children’s play area with a jungle gym.
The estate produces the finest wines. The tasting room offers wine tasting which is paired with handmade chocolate. The Twilight Market also operates every Friday night from 17h00 – 21h00 and entrance is free. There is also a market on a Sunday from 10h00 – 15h00. With more than 70 stalls selling delicious eats, organic produce, handmade items and arts and crafts. Another attraction is the live entertainment and the fact that it is dog friendly.
There is so much to discover at Lourensford Wine Estate. A very popular tourist destination as well. If you have never been to this wine estate, please add it to places to explore in and around Cape Town. A perfect location for the whole family to be out in nature. With so much on offer, you will not be disappointed.
