The Quiet Months in Stellenbosch
Red wine, autumn leaves and cosy bedrooms
My favourite time of the year is Autumn & Winter. The vineyards are beautiful when their leaves change colour. We have a few stormy days as a cold front passes... and then the most wonderful crisp clear days. Blue skies and sunshine.
The village is still bustling with students, restaurants get their fireplaces going - and we settle down with a glass of wine.
In the garden we do some autumn sorting, moving roses which are in the wrong place.... and plant plenty of spring bulbs.....then the snowdrops start popping up.
