John’s Gem: Riebeeck Kasteel

IMG_1735The tiny village of Riebeeck Kasteel lies in the heart of the Swartland, a mere 50 minutes from Cape Town.

Attractions include: delicious country cuisine; the warmest and most charming hospitality; a truly outstanding craft brewery; and of course, some of South Africa’s very best wineries!
