While on a trip to Cape Town, I visited South Africa's wine country: Stellenbosch!

Our first stop was Waterford Estate.

On a dreary, rainy southern African afternoon, the coziness and roaring fire was absolutely perfect.

The vineyard was filled with lovely little spots with bursts of color

The wine was excellent, paired with amazing house chocolates such as rose geranium milk chocolate.

I already want to return to Cape Town (okay, okay, okay, I always want to return to Cape Town) and explore more of Stellenbosch.
