Bosjes a new treat for Wolseley visitors

The magnificent Bosjes has certainly got the Western Cape talking - Samantha Linsell's article and photographs perfectly capture this very unique venue, just 10 minutes from the village of Wolseley.

"Today I got a sneak peek into the very beautiful Bosjes Farm in the Breede River Valley before it’s opening in the middle of this month. I had seen many pictures of its chapel, the design of which was inspired by a bird in flight, but seeing it in the flesh was even more impressive. It is exquisite. From a distance it looks to me like a swan gliding across the water, and is a stunning space to look at and be in.

The property is nestled at the foot of the Waaihoek Mountains and there are panoramic views in every direction. The small boutique guesthouse has 5 luxury suites and gorgeous pool in the middle. The décor has an earthy, natural but contemporary feel that blends into the stark surroundings."

My partner and I returned to Cape Town from Wolseley after two days of work and pleasure. She had enjoyed meeting the Tourist Office staff and local business owners for her Social Media Workshop. I had visited five utterly different wine farms and tasted so many different wines of every style and variety. I realised that there’s so much more to do in the area – hiking, mountain-bike riding, fishing and more – with its spectacular scenery. Even so, we had time to stop off at the Farmyard Honey Factory on the R46 and see one of the Wolseley blockhouses as we passed through. The old forts were built in 1901 by the British during the Anglo-Boer War to protect the railway bridges from Boer attacks.

I have two reasons to return: to taste the 2017 Chenin Blanc and to visit the farmers’ market at Mountain Ridge wines. There are more vineyards to taste wines too, which are not shown on the Tourist Office map or website.

Another reason perhaps is to sketch out a Wolseley Wine Route for the Tourist Office. It is needed. I already have a name in mind. WWW again but not for the Warm Wolseley Welcome. It will be WWW for Peter’s Wolseley Wine Wanderings!
