We did the new ice cream tasting at Spice route. It is a lot of ice cream for just R60. The flavors are delicious. There are mountain bike trails, chocolate tasting, nice restaurants, beer tasting and even a pizzeria and lots more.

We hit this place on a cold winters day so headed towards barley and biltong for food. Nice open fires and good wines. Nice views of Paarl from the top of the deck.
