Le Pommier - Solms Delta
Solms Delta Estate
Tel : (021) 874 3937
Again in contrast to the two (or three) estates you’ve visited so far, you’ll find Mark Solms’ estate a wonderful blend of history, social responsibility and excellent wine. In the restaurant (yes, it’s lunch time now so go ahead!) you’ll find a glass floor with the dug remains of the original Cape Dutch farmhouse beneath which occupied this land centuries ago. Alternatively, ask for a picnic hamper instead. The estate also boasts its very own music festival, the Oesfees, every year which celebrates local, indigenous music and celebration and is definitely worth stopping off for if your visit coincides with it. Wines here are truly excellent also.
Don’t miss the Amalie, a voignier blend that will have you buying a case before you know what’s happening.
