Returned to Stellenbosch and visited the slow market. Lots of interesting foods and some crafts. The breakfast sandwich was fabulous and of course the Belgium "timbits" were a fitting way to top off breakfast. We spent the balance of the morning doing a part of a walking tour which covers numerous points of interest in the town.

Saturday afternoon was wine tasting at;

Waterford Winery -- a beautiful winery in which the presentation and tasting at the facility was wonderful. They also offered a wine and chocolate pairing which was an interesting combination. Unfortunately none of the wines were to our liking but we did buy the chocolate which was very good.

Somerbosch Winery -- had lunch here which was excellent, gourmet food at cafeteria pricing. The wine was good particularly the Savignon Blanc

Ernie Els Winery -- we were very impressed with the road leading to the winery, a mile or so of interlocking brick. Once there, the view was stunning and the facilities really "high end". Their wine is bit more expensive but Ernie's name probably has some added value. The winery is 100% owned by Ernie yet apparently he rarely goes there.
