Wine farms

Living in Cape Town, itís difficult not to be drawn into the world of wine. Being from Zimbabwe I have to confess that I am more of a beer and cider drinker, but lately I am turning more to wine (especially in winter).  To be honest, I also donít know that much about wine, apart from the fact that if I think it tastes good, then it Ďs good. What I really enjoy however, is a wine farm with character or an estate thatís beautiful to look at and has other things to do too, like these ones:
