Who isn’t captivated by the regal appearance of a stud (horse)? When you see them, it is as though they are prancing in front of you, letting you know that they are in demand of your attention. With a reverence and love of both horses and wine, the Cavalli Wine & Stud Farm bring both to the fore. Situated in the prestigious Winelands region of Stellenbosch, South Africa is the Cavalli Wine & Stud Farm.
What you will discover here is more than you might have ever imagined. Not only is the landscaping of the property immaculate, but you will also discover that much detail has also gone into the architecture of every building on the property, including its stables. Never have I seen stables so clean that I could forget they are actually stables for horses. This is no gross exaggeration. You have to see them in order to believe it. The stables are situated inside a state-of-the-art training facility. This steel and timber constructed facility was designed to offer its prize-winning studs, a full-range of interactive opportunities. Guests are invited to view their training process from the comfort of a contemporary air-conditioned, indoor lounge area.
When you journey 45-minutes outside of Cape Town, South Africa for a luxury South African experience to the Cavalli Wine & Stud Farm it is quite easy to plan an entire afternoon enjoying all that it has to offer. A trip would certainly warrant a visit to the Cavalli Art Gallery where there is a Private Selection of art pieces on display for visitors to enjoy along with carefully selected curated pieces. If you enjoy shopping for unique, custom-made items, you can’t leave without perusing the boutique where items are carefully chosen, which embody the essence of the entire wine estate. You’ll find a sophisticated collection of carefully chosen items that are not easily found elsewhere.
You simply cannot visit the farm without stopping by the exquisitely designed wine lounge. Guests can enjoy premium wines, along with the estates high-end, Passion range wines. The icing on the cake, so to speak, might just be the dining experience at the Cavalli Estate restaurant. It is a modern-contemporary restaurant that offers creative dishes made from freshly grown herbs and vegetables. The cuisine offered is all based on the sustainable ingredients, grown on the property. Patrons enjoy simple, yet intensely flavorful cuisine prepared by a very discerning chef.
In addition to the cuisine offered, you’re sure to be captivated by the sheer beauty and spender of the region of the entire Stellenbosh area. There is no doubt about it; all of your senses (sight, sound, touch, and taste) are certainly in full use during your visit.
When you are seeking a laid-back, luxury travel experience in beautiful South Africa, you’re sure to find it at the Cavalli Wine & Stud Farm.
