Darling Olives, Alexanderfontein Estate, Swartland
Just outside of Darling on the Alexanderfontein Estate, is the home of Darling Olives. This is a whole new experience where the pairing of wine, olive oil, cheeses, and olives in a most interesting manner is done. Very professional and intimate and one comes away with a whole new knowledge and experience of this lovely event. An extremely wide range of produce, well presented and TASTY.
Finally on our way home we stopped in at Groote Post, a beautiful wine estate where one can taste wine from five cellars in the region, all perfectly blended from grapes in this unique terroir. All families with a unique understanding of the areas conditions, the wine producers of Darling are very passionate and enthusiastic in their approach to good wine.
This is undeniably one of the most exciting wine districts in the Cape and can be enjoyed together with an experience of meeting ‘down to earth’ people, enjoying sumptuous meals, and enjoy the measured way of life of the Swartland.
