Hg2 : The Hedonist


If you’re short of things to do in Cape Town, you can always go visit another wine estate. Besides the fact that there’s a fabulous tale behind each label at this recently revitalised estate that enjoys partial ownership by the resident community, the pleasure of a tasting here is the intimate and lively explanation that accompanies each variety. The guides, who can also take you on a brief (or not-so-brief) tour of the small museum, reveal the mysteries and potentialities of each bottle with considerable charm and enthusiasm, making you feel more like you’re sharing a moment with a wine-loving friend than someone who’s simply going through the motions. Once you’ve tasted a few, however, you’ll probably want to stay on for a picnic on the grounds, supplied – along with a bottle of wine – by Fyndraai, the estate’s restaurant.
