We visited the wine country on this day, sampling fourteen different wines at two different wineries. We were surprised at the great variety of products (including whiskey) made here. Our major winery stop was at Oude Libertas Centre at Stellenbosch. The Stellenbosch Farmers' Winery consortium sponsors this center and the combined production from this group of wineries is in the top five in the world. While there, we toured the winery, the cooperage and the bottling plant. Later, we sampled the excellent products.
We stopped for lunch at Spier, a beautiful picnic spot bordering a lake in the wine country. However, before lunch, Vicky visited with a cheetah, inside a caged setting. The site is sponsored by a group promoting cheetah conservation. Everyone was very quiet inside the cage.
