Spier Wine Farm

We spent the day at Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch, which is the main wine land of South Africa. It is winter here, so the vines are bare, but the farm was absolutely beautiful, and we enjoyed our day very much. There is a birds of prey rehabilitation center on the grounds, and the kids (especially the two younger guys) were thrilled to get to interact with the birds and other animals in such an up-close-and-personal way. There was a large viewing area and a petting area, and there were several shows throughout the day that we got to enjoy. We also had a delicious lunch at the cafe and a wine and juice tasting later in the afternoon. And, let us not forget sticks and rocks, which are apparently universally fun for all little boys from around the world!

The vines are bare right now, but they do go on forever.

Max truly loved interacting with the birds of prey
and was quick to volunteer as a helper in the show.

It was great fun to watch and play with the porcupine and learn about her habits.

loving on the barn owls

Lunch at Eight was wonderful, but the boulders in the background were a real crowd pleaser.

I love anything served on a board!

Wine stuff is always cool to look at!

Why, yes there is an owl on Max's head.

Clay also got a cranial visit from the owl.

Juice tasting for the kids

Max's favorite was the middle one.

"Take my picture, too!"

Weston's favorite was the white grape juice.
