De Grendel has always been known for their outstanding wines, but recently they’ve had some competition from the restaurant. The restaurant at De Grendel is a great pitstop on a day of wine tasting, but we especially love whiling away a Sunday afternoon there. It’s not quite Durbanville, but we’ve included it becuase of its beautiful views and delicious food.
