One of our favouite places to escape to every now and again is to visit our friends who live on the beautiful farm of Mooiplaas located in the Bottelary area near Stellenbosch. It’s such a tucked away place that not many people have heard of it – which is exactly why I love it. It’s an authentic wine farm experience that hasn’t been tainted by too much commercialism.
I highly recommend a visit to their wine tasting room located in one of the old outbuildings of this national monument or you might like to pre-order one of their amazing picnic baskets and indulge in a deliciously lazy afternoon with a few glasses of their Chenin under the oaks…. especially lovely during the warmer summer months of course!
I happened to be there a few months back and took myself off on a wander around the grounds. The spring flowers were out and I loved spending some time capturing them with the view to possibly paint these piccies in the future.
Here are a few photos to give you a taste of Mooiplaas, and if you haven’t yet discovered this hidden gem I hope you will feel inspired to go exploring soon!
