Autumnal Franschhoek lunching at Anthonij Rupert Wyne's Terra del Capo

On a chilly autumn day this April that sang of the cold weather to come, we confirmed our appointment at the gate then drove through the country scenery of lavender and large trees, gladly accepting a complimentary flute of the pale pink bubbly L'Ormarins Brut Classique once safely out of the rain at Anthonij Rupert Wyne's Terra del Capo.

Now that movie nearly gave me a heart attack and I knew I wouldn't be satisfied with a knock-off version - even if it starred Kiernan Shipka and Miranda Otto of the beloved Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Against my better judgement, I decided to give it a chance anyway. The movie starts off pretty underwhelming, but I'm glad I stuck with it.
