Lord G and his Wine Flies van picked up thirteen people in Cape Town and we had an educational and fun drive out to Stellenbosh and Paarl. I lucked out with twelve great people and Lord G was awesome - a total wine lord, hence the nickname. The drive was gorgeous with vineyards pushed up against steep rock mountains. I couldn't believe it, made me love South Africa even more (and I hadn't even had a glass of wine yet). Since we were picked up at 8am we started the drinking off with something easy... champagne. From there we visited four more wineries and had an excellent lunch along the way. I will definetly be looking for South African wine when I am back in the States!
