Where you’ll stay

We are delighted to be partnering with a number of local establishments who provide a range of accommodation options the Slow Wine Weekends experience, priced to suit your pocket.

Lord’s Guest Lodge

SAM_0667This four-star guest lodge is perched at the top of a hill outside McGregor, with magnificent views over the Breede Valley.

In addition to fabulous accommodation in Scottish-themed rooms, Collin and Matt and their team offer a range of cuisines.  Among the top 10 in the second season of the Ultimate Braai Master, not only do they they do a mean braaivleis, but with three of the team having also been in the top 10 of the South African leg of the Global Pizza Challenge (for multiple years), the pizzas are to die for.

To top all of this, in the Lady Grey Restaurant, the fine country cuisine is a great accompaniment to the valley’s best boutique wines.

A visit to Green Gables is one of those must-do McGregor experiences.  We are delighted to have Jill and her team on board for an unforgettable dining experience in her eclectically beautiful dining room, or in her wonderful cottages.

 

 

McGregor Country House and Overdraught Pub

McGregor Country House is home to the Overdraught Pub, known to the locals as Carol’s Pub.  Carol is one of McGregor’s many good people and her pub is a place where farmers and villagers catch up on the week over a pint or several glasses of the local fruit of the vine.  Carol’s pub grub, cooked and presented by a regular is seasonal and a popular local favourite.
