Wine duo worth travelling 51 miles to savour

Worth an 82km trip from Cape Town?


Of course the best place to sample the 51 Miles sauvignon blanc and unwooded chardonnay is on platform 1 at Elgin station, near the sign that tells us we are 919 feet above sea level and 51 miles from Cape Town. If the weather is unkind, head into the old booking office, now an appealing tasting room where marketing manager Emy Mathews or assistant Dianne de Vries will welcome you and pour your choice of Winters Drift wines.
