Snapshot: Grape Harvest in the Western Cape

22 February 2013


Freshly-plucked grapes being tossed on to the tractor at the Rietvlei Farm outside Montagu in the Western Cape of South Africa. I contacted Janine through the ADVrider Tent Space List (CouchSurfing for bikers) and her parents run this huge farm. They also grow apricots, peaches and green peppers. The grapes get transported into town where there’s a huge cellar that churns out the wine.

I’m almost at the end of my journey through Africa. Tomorrow, I’ll be swinging by Cape Agulhas and then into Cape Town, my last stop on this amazing continent.
