We stopped for a light, late lunch of oysters and sparkling wine. My wife declared the West Coast oysters, “The best I’ve ever had!”. And, the glasses of Kaapse Vonkel sparkling wines ( one brut and one brut rose) were perfect accompaniments.

Great wine range though preferred the whites to the reds. Tasting room a little too warm to be comfortable on a very hot day, but cooler than outside tasting area. Great prices.
