We had a family lunch at La Pommier on the wine route between the beautiful towns of Stellenbosch and Franschoek. My sister suggested we end off the afternoon with coffee at Delaire Graff Wine estate and Lodge. I am not somebody who think that a landscaped environment produces the ultimate beauty – no I rather prefer it au naturel, enjoying the beauty nature itself creates. However I have to admit that this wine estate emanates professionalism and taste and is indeed the closest to perfection I have ever seen.
However it does not compare to the beauty of my daughter and no I am not claiming she is perfect. I would like to claim that I love her with the perfect parental love, but no I do not believe perfect love is possible. I do however believe in forgiveness regarding the errors we all make and try to install that in my daughters. Elrike certainly enjoyed the sculptures, the artwork in the gallery, the tour of the estate in their electric vehicles showing off vineyards planted in mathematical perfection with not a hint of weeds to distract the eye from the wine producing curves.
I am only placing a few photos, being the driveway to the restaurant, sculptures in the garden area and the perfect vineyards already mentioned.
