Lunch at George Jardine's Bakery, Jordan Wine Estate, Stellenbosch

After our tasting at DeMorgenzon, we drove next door to Jordan, where one of our members had arranged for us to have a great wine tasting on the terrace and then a lovely informal lunch on the deck below
Inside the bakery. They sell amazing fresh bread and pies and pastries with lots of other condiments and jams
Choices, choices
A long table had been set up for our wine tasting. They do charge for the wine tasting. Our club bank account paid for that. You do need to book for the tastings if you have a large group and for the lunch
We tasted through a selection of Jordan wines
We had our lunch down on the deck under the trees and took up two tables
Jordan has some of the best views in the winelands, even on a hazy day
Friends from Noordhoek had also picked this day to visit
It is a very popular place and there is lots of room on the lawns to picnic as well
Our platters of meat, cheese, bread, tapenade and salad, We ordered Jordan's The Outlier Sauvignon Blanc and the Rosé on our table and the other table did the same
The platters were topped with pickled onion and caper berries
and also included some great quiches with lots of flavour
We also had some of the best salted caramel and chocolate ganache tarts with our coffee. The bill with wine came to R330 per couple
