I was sitting at my desk minding my own business when all of a sudden an email dropped into my inbox and I was blown away into another dimension. I then went onto Social Media and there it was …. My Big Fat Whale, Wine & Wors Tour. I could not believe that 3 of my most fav things which is checking out the big whales, drinking copious amounts of wine and eating boerewors was attainable right under my pretty little nose!
Oh yes, Wine Flies has introduced a great 3 W’s tour – Whales, Wine and Wors and this is one tour I am not going to miss. The whales are slowly making their way back to Hermanus and we all know that the warm winter sun, fresh air, wine and wors is the best cure to beat the winter blues. The tour runs every Tuesday and Thursday from July until December so if you don’t catch me in the office on either one of these two day’s you will find me on tour! Then expect a blog post of note! I don’t want to spoil all the fun as to what one does on the Tour (what happens on the tour, stays on the tour) suffice to say, there will be a lot to see and a lot to do and your entire day is jam-packed from start to finish with Riaan, the tour operator, keep you entertained all the way.
The first stop is Stellenbosch to experience the Wine part of the tour. I cannot think of anything nicer than starting the day drinking wine – make mine a full glass please! After the wine tasting you will be whisked off to Grabouw for the second W of the tour – wors. Braai Master’s will agree that Grabouw boerewors has all the flavours for an enjoyable meal. And what can compare to boerewors and apple cider tasting in Grabouw? This pairing I would simply label as awesome! Leave me here and fetch me later, please.
Then it is off to Hermanus for Whale watching – I think at this time I would feel like a whale myself but the tour does not end here. More wine tasting to finish off the day before heading back to the city. If you were traveling with me on this tour, you would have to excuse the snoring that you would hear coming from the back seat. This is one tour I think I could thoroughly enjoy with a couple of volunteers. Who is game?
Next tour is on the 16th July.
