Axe Hill wines, Calitzdorp

Before we left Calitzdorp we dropped into Axe Hill to see friend Mike Neebe and taste some of his lovely wines and ports. Mike had just finished bottling this year's wines. He is doing some innovative things
Mike's prize winning ports and wines
He told us about his plans and generously gave us some tasting from the barrels as well. We bought some of his Distinta red blend and a bottle of the white port which, sadly, hit the kitchen floor before it got drunk
A hoopoe on the ground as we left the cellar
This is one of our most distinctive birds but they are often hard to spot as they seem only to appear early in the morning
Then it was off on the road home with just one more stop on the way at Joubert Tradauw for lunch
