Franschhoek Artisan Food Route: Wine and olives at La Bourgogne

The Shiraz rosé from La Bourgogne
The stream in spate after all the heavy rains over the weekend
La Bourgogne’s tasting room entrance
The owner, Loesje Mayer, and her lovely helper in the tasting room
The view from the tasting room looks French, with their very active and cute sheepdog
We begin our tasting with the olive oils
And then their home grown and made spiced pear preserve and olives
The tasting room has a lovely rustic and warm feel and there are stacks of wine bottles everywhere in niches
An old plum orchard which is about to be replaced and, in the distance, newer trees
Lovely lawns for picnics alongside the river
