In my last Cape Town post you got a lot of “nature insights”… but no worries, now I have some delicious “wine & food insights” from the winery Babylonstoren for you, which is located near the town of Paarl and it is just a 45-minute drive from Cape Town. We went there for wine tasting and I really enjoyed it.
We took this trip on a 38 degrees Sunday… but with the Simonsberg, Du Toitskloof and Franschhoek mountains as backdrop, the gardens of Babylonstoren are majestic anyway… even at this temperatures. Babylonstoren is many things brought together in near perfection – a vineyard, restaurant, farm, farm shop, spa, hotel (and probably more).
Unfortunately we missed the Babel Restaurant because the garden was too fascinating… but it is good excuse to visit this unique place for a second time.
