Agapanthus at Vergelegen

Agapanthus at Vergelegen

Vergelegen is one of the few vineyards open on Jan 1.  A wonderful alternative to the beach and now a place for all the family.  Vergelegen is so well known for the grandiose Manor House with Cape Dutch architecture and the three hundred year old giant Camphor trees.  We sometimes neglect to mention the gardens which are clearly nurtured and another source of pride at Vergelegen.

Located in front of Stables (the new bistro style casual restaurant) and next to the jungle gym play area, the multiple species of Agapanthus are blooming at their best right and worth a visit to see these alone.

As you walk from the Manor House to the libray you will pass a carpet of Hydrangea, also in perfect bloom.

Vergelegen is open seven days a week except for Good Friday and Christmas Day and has something for all the family.  A bistro, fine dining, picnics, gardens, children’s play area, historical manor house, historical library and fabulous walks alongside the river and around the grounds.
