Paarl

50 Kms NE of Cape Town, on the NI to the hinterland,

imposing KWV Headquarters

this is the base of KWV a coop that went semi-private.
In days past, this was the label that represented South African Wines, but things have changed.
despite Roodeberg and other, their newer labeld ROEBRT's Rock is EXCELLENT value for money.

Nederberg Wine Auctions

imposing estate of familiar landmark of a fine blender of wines for the masses, in my days of youth and folly.
the original Noble Late Harvest producers,
and of course, their CAB, Pinotage
and eminence amongst many

    It's indeed a great place to visit, the scenery, the monument and the wines, it brings back good memories.
