For magnificent views of Table Mountain, head north of Cape Town to De Grendel Wine Estate. Sip their signature sauvignon blanc from the long, glass-encased veranda and gaze across the vineyards to the mountain, the city and the Atlantic Ocean. On a clear day, you can see all the way across the peninsula to False Bay.
Besides the views, draws here include the selection of wine-tasting experiences and guided cellar tours, and the contemporary Cape cuisine in their fine-dining restaurant. There’s a farm tour in a safari vehicle for the adventurous, where guests are given a history of the farm while being introduced to local antelope species. There’s even a helipad for the well-heeled.
