Spice Route is the perfect destination when not everyone in your party is a wine lover. Here, there is something for everyone– a Disney World for grown-ups. One of you can taste the wine, while the other goes in search of craft beer, chocolates or grappa, and then afterwards you can regroup for a meal in the restaurant or enjoy a pizza in La Grapperia. Spice Route is a successful, fun version of a Neighbourhood Market, with a big range of quality artisanal products made and sold in the different buildings that are scattered on the terraces, each one with a 180+ degree panaromic view of the Cape winelands and mountains, including the ever-distinctive outline of Table Mountain in the far distance.
Spice Route can get very busy, but there is so much happening that if one venue is full, you can move on to the next. Attractions include the Barley & Biltong beer garden – craft beer on tap, platters, salads, sausages and cured meats, the Cape Brewing Company – see beer being brewed and taste a variety of craft brews, DV Chocolates and Expresso bar – ‘Bean to Bar’ micro batch chocolatier, delicious coffee and deluxe ice cream, Wilderer’s Distillery & La Grapparia Restaurant – Grappa or Schnapps, thin base pizzas and flammkuchen, the Wall Cottage – tea and cakes, Richard Bosman’s cured meats, Red Hot Glass – a Venetian-style glass blowing studio, and of course the Spice Route Restaurant.
It is a sensory journey, but don’t forget the wines. You can taste them in a simple wine tasting, paired with chocolate, or paired with charcuterie. Look out for the fabulous Malabar, or the popular Chakalaka, both lovely spicy syrah wines with which to celebrate a Spice Route.
