Stanford Wine Route Launch: Stanford Hills

Monday evening saw us at Stanford Hills owned by Peter and Jami Kastner who produce Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinotage, and run the restaurant.. They also grow flowers for the export market, roses for the local market as well as olives
This is the tasting room and restaurant. We really enjoyed their Sauvignon Blanc, nice and crisp and green, with good pyroxenes
They had the fire pit filled with a beacon load of fire for later. Should all the farms have one so they can signal each other?
The menu and the mezze boards which were our starter
The long table could seat the whole group
The fire is lit
and enjoyed by the family ridgeback
Ooops, fire collapses, but it was soon sorted
Some rescued lambs get their supper from Jami
Anel Grobler helps out
3 choices of main course. What shall we choose?
Their wine prices
Gathering round the fire, as the evening was a bit chilled
Chicken curry with rice and a Poppadum for John
Moroccan lamb and couscous for Lynne. Most of the group had the Asian style pork
A good friendly evening
