Wine On The Veranda: A Stunt Performer, JHG Chardonnay and Swellendam Tourism
On a fresh and rainy day in Swellendam, South Africa, Fleur van Eeden, South Africa's top stunt performer and her mom Cathy joined me on The Veranda for a glass of delicious wine.

JHG spoilt us by delivering their not only beautiful, but delicious chardonnay to The Veranda. Perfectly described by Cathy as sunshine in a glass!
This winery and 5* accommodation are located on the most southern tip of the Robertson Wine Valley at the foothills of the Langeberg mountains. Their Single Vineyard Wine is made with minimal interference throughout the vinification. During fermentation natural yeast is used and no enzymes are added. This results in a distinguished wine. The tropical notes are evident and it is uplifted by the acidity on the palate. A delicious wine for summer!
I might be name dropping, but...
Fleur is well known as South Africa's top stunt performer. She has doubled for Charlize Theron, Meryl Streep, Hellen Mirren and recently for Alicia Vikader in the 2018 British film, Tomb Raider. She is passionate about her home town, Swellendam and shares her favourite spots for activities in the area.
Cathy is deeply involved in Swellendam's tourism and an avid photographer. I have been a fan of her photos before we even relocated to Swellendam!
