Dip your toes in the cool water and your nose in the crisp glass. Refresh with wine at the rustic Cellar, at the Riverside Tasting Room or on the Riverboat. The Riverside Tasting Room has a wooden deck built on the river's bank overlooking the blue water and the natural luscious green vegetation and wildlife it attracts. Flanked by mountain ranges and canopied by open skies this is an unspoilt paradise enhanced by the delicious local wines. Winter months are made cosy with the indoor fireplace and outdoor gas heaters.
The deli serves a great selection of country meals and snacks for enjoying at the wooden tables or gathering in a picnic basket for the midday boat cruise. The Riverboat catamaran with its alfresco dining tables cruises like a classy white floating restaurant with panoramic views in place of windows. Grab your wine and an ice-bucket and drift along the Breede in delightful style.
