False Bay Vine­yards prides it­self on mak­ing ‘real’ wine af­ford­able and has now given its range a facelift. The False Bay range (R58 per bot­tle from bou­tique wine shops and restau­rants coun­try­wide) com­prises two red wines (Old School Syrah and Bush Vine Pino­tage), three whites (Crys­talline Chardon­nay, Windswept Sauvi­gnon Blanc and Slow Chenin Blanc), and a Whole Bunch Rosé. Go to false­bayvine­yards.co.za. Ro­jaal is an au­then­tic coun­try eatery in El­gin, just a short drive from Cape Town. Lo­cated in a for­mer flower-pack­ing shed, Ro­jaal (the Afrikaans word for gen­er­ous or abun­dant) was es­tab­lished by en­ter­pris­ing ap­ple farmer Arno Reu­vers just over a year ago. The her­itage-style dé­cor and whole­some menu, in­clud­ing favourites such as chicken salad with a side of roost­erkoek or a mouth­wa­ter­ing cake part­nered with a Cream Soda float, is fab­u­lous. It’s open from 08:00 to 17:00 on Wed­nes­day to Sun­day; call 021 204 1085.
