Who doesn’t enjoy a little leisurely wine tasting at a beautiful estate? Our family loves spending time in the winelands but in recent years we’ve tended to focus on picnics or meals.
The reason is that there’s nothing relaxing about wine tasting when bored kids are running rampant. The consumption of wine becomes a medicinal exercise versus an activity in appreciation and discovery. Am I right?
A few wise places have gone beyond your run of the mill jungle gym offering and created kid friendly tastings to entertain the little critters while mom and dad sample the real deal.
One such place that has it waxed is Eikendal in Stellenbosch.
I sourced this valuable info. in my trusty and dog-eared Stellenbosch guide. We set off on a weekend outing to check it out with one request from my daughter as we reversed down the driveway, “daddy can we actual follow Google’s directions this time please?” She raised a valid point and I was forced to conceal a smirk of amusement.
