Laborie Wine Farm: a lovely surprise

I absolutely adore surprises, especially romantic ones. After my Hermanus adventure I longed for some low profile joie de vivre. Some peace, quiet and nature. I was ready to find my 'inner zen Pip'. And this of course in combination with some lovely wines because we were headed for THE wine area of South Africa. And what a surprise indeed: a romantic stay on the Laborie Wine Farm in Paarl. And the most wonderful thing was, the Laborie estate consists of seven rooms, each named and decorated after a type of wine. And I (of course there was no other option:) slept in the 'Sauvignon Blanc' room. A lovely room with a desk (see the picture underneath) I instantly fell in love with. The breakfast was fairytale like. With silver cutlery and we ate at a table with room for thirty people. Just like in the movies. The surprise made me really happy. Thanks H!
