Having been invited to a family wedding in Riebeek Kasteel, we set about finding ourselves an overnight stay. Little did we know that the place we would choose, actually belonged to friends, Gareth Pienaar and Grant Dewar who invited us to spend the night at Vineyard Views Country House as their guests.
This enchanting country house is situated in the main road, just on the outskirts of the town, set in an old Colombar Vineyard with spectacular views of the valley and the Kasteelberg.
All the old clichés of comfort and luxury and warmth of reception, attention to detail, superb accommodation and great hosts take on a refreshing new look at Vineyard Views.
It is a special place and I think if you leave a place with regret, then you have had a truly good time.
We would go back in a heartbeat.
