Literally just off the N1 when you reach Main Road Paarl, Babylonstoren is a pretty, healthy, visual, great for groups, wine farm, which I have visited 3 times now….
The farm has an entrance fee of R10 per person, which includes a guided Garden tour at 10 AM I think. The garden is creatively organized as the Company’s Garden used to be. The green house is a breakfast/light lunch restaurant meant for just refreshing yourself after along walk through the gardens. There is also the more pricey Babel Restaurant, hotel rooms, a spa, and the Farm shop.
The first time I went, I have to admit I was most impressed by the Juice… which is simply names Red, Green or Orange and made up of various things throughout the garden depending on the season…
The second time I took my Mom, which involved lunch in the Greenhouse, posing in the garden, special tea from herbs
Finally the last time I went with 2 dear friends, we drove on a long gravel road *by accident, we had a wonderful day of eating, posing, declarations of abundance, feeding the donkeys (my favourite)….
And lastly making crazy wonderful declarations for February
