Off to Seppeltsfield

I’d opted for mushroom pate and a glass of Beer Brothers Semillon Chardonnay for lunch, while Madam’s had the red pepper version and a non-alcoholic Cabernet.

Looking at the contents of each little basket you might feel you’d need a bit more to keep you going for the rest of the day. 

I found there was just enough to fill the yawning void without leaving you too bloated to be able to fit in a little liquid afterwards.

Madam picked up some ice-cream on the way out, planning to give it time to soften a little on the way to nearby Seppeltsfield

On the way, we passed two wineries that my research suggested could well be worth visiting, but the game plan brooked no variation.

Approaching Seppeltsfield Madam was impressed by the hilltop Seppelt Family Mausoleum looking out across the valley, and by the avenues of huge ancient date palms along the way.

A pause in the precipitation gave me a chance to duck over into the tasting room while Madam sat in the car with the ice-cream. 

Safely inside the tasting area, I took a stroll around the museum displays.
