Dog Run
“The Root44 weekend market is a local favourite. If you want great food, great vibes - this is the place! We love going to the market at about 11am (to get good seating, as the market can become very busy in the afternoons) on a Saturday/Sunday, and just eat and chill and listen to live music all day. A visit to Root44 is a MUST. It's also a great option for families with kids, as there is a big supervised playground. ”

Winery
“For 321 years Rust en Vrede has stood peacefully among the vineyards of Stellenbosch. Through centuries there were periods when wine was produced, but for the last 32 years our family have specialized in producing only red wine with the focus on Syrah, Cabernet and Merlot. Many accolades have been bestowed upon the estate and some of the more memorable were when Rust en Vrede was chosen by President Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and hosting the Queen of Denmark for a lunch with my family at the Manor House. Rust en Vrede was nominated as the first South African red wine in the Top 100 Wines of the World and repeated this achieved for four consecutive years.”
