Babylonstoren is one of the most popular vineyards in the area, and our favorite place in Stellenbosch for a lunch break. Stroll through the Versailles-esque gardens pretending to not be someone who kills plants in a day, then pick between Babel, a fancier option serving produce from the gardens, and Greenhouse, a quicker, more laid-back option in the very back of the property. Make sure to check out the actual greenhouse on your way out and pick up the free, freshly-picked fruit on offer that day. This place is close to a lot of other great wineries, so when you’re all set here, head to Warwick for wine, Tokara, Zorgvliet, and Delaire Graff for views, or Boschendal for both.
