Wine On The Veranda: Old Gaols, Whales and Fishing Spots

Old Gaol Sauvignon Blanc vs Old Gaol Cabernet Sauvignon

The owner and the chef from one of the local restaurants, Old Gaol on Church Square, joined me on The Veranda at Impangele Guesthouse in Swellendam, South Africa for a wine tasting.

On this sunny afternoon in January, Wynand, Dirk and I tasted two wines from their restaurant.  They elaborated about the history of the town and meanwhile I was sipping a delicious sauvignon blanc and cabernet sauvignon. Their combined wealth of knowledge about food and wine made this a generous offering of knowledge about all things local.


20 Voortrek Street, Swellendam, South Africa (in the main road, opposite the beautiful white church)

Which wine will win over my heart?
