Scenic Day Routes to the 101 Best Wineries.
This a beautiful and practical guidebook to the wineries in the Cape Winelands of South Africa. From the more than 350 wine farms and estates within an hour's drive of Cape Town, the authors selected the "101 best," using their independent judgment to decide which would provide the best visitor experience. These featured wineries were then divided into ten routes. Each route begins with a one page description of the route, indicating what can be seen and where to go opposite an easy to read map showing visitors how to get to the featured wineries. A one or two page story about each featured farm or estate follows, illustrated with beautiful photographs. The margin notes for each featured winery provide detailed information about the winery and its visitor amenities which can be seen at a glance. There is also a comprehensive directory at the back that gives details for 350 wineries that are open for wine tasting along these routes. It is a visually stunning book which people will want to keep or buy as gifts. It is small enough to be easily taken along as a practical guidebook, yet so artistically designed, withy more than 170 beautiful color photographs and 10 attractive maps, that it will also be cherished as a coffee table book or memento of the wine country visit. The book has no advertising and is an independent guide for visitors.
