Ons het ‘n insigewende stap­tog deur Mooiplaas (Bot­te­lary pad) se wingerde en renos­ter­veld aangepak saam met eien­aar Tiel­man as ons gids. Ons was aan­ge­naam ver­ras met sy bree ken­nis van kruie, plante, insekte, bio-​diversiteit ens. Sy ken­nis van wyn en wingerde spreek boekdele en met so baie inligt­ing is ons baie wyser huis toe. Die plaas is asem­rowend mooi en dit word nie verniet Mooiplaas genoem nie.

Na die stap is ons entoe­si­asties na die wyn­proe area, waar Tiel­man ons Mooiplaas se wye reeks wyne laat proe het. Ons het die wyn vreeslik geniet en die vog­gies het goed gevloei aan­ge­sien ons gasvrye gasheer aan­houdend bly skink het. Met sy oe in onde­unde skre­fies getrek het hy ons ook ‘n kod­dige staaltjie of twee ver­tel wat ons almal laat skater­lag het.

Dit was werk­like ‘n aan­ge­name dag met goeie gesel­skap en goeie wyn. Sit dit op jou “bucket list” , maak ‘n afspraak en gaan verken Mooiplaas per voet. Dis ‘n belewe­nis wat jou nie sal teleurs­tel nie.

If you enjoy the out­doors with a lit­tle wine on on the side, then I rec­om­mend that you read on. Even if you do not enjoy wine, this extremely infor­ma­tive hike through some of the indige­nous veld and exten­sive vine­yards of Mooiplaas Wine Estate gives one great insight into the world of wine mak­ing. Tielman,one of the fore­most con­ser­va­tion­ists in the area and owner of the farm bom­barded us with facts about the vine­yards, wine mak­ing and the indige­nous veld for a full two and a half hours.

The hike starts at the wine tast­ing area and leads up to the high­est point on the farm where one has 360° sweep­ing views of the Helder­berg , Table Moun­tain and the Bot­te­lary Region. The walk is not stren­u­ous, although there is one or two “steep­ish” sec­tions, so it should be in most peo­ples abil­ity to complete.

The wine tast­ing and story telling by Tiel­man after­wards did not dis­ap­point and rounded the day of perfectly.

Mooiplaas also boasts with a horse acad­emy where one can get horse rid­ing lessons. For more infor­ma­tion con­tact the farm, details below. On this farm there is also an exten­sive moun­tain bike track, with up to 80 km of riding.
