 Olives from Oakhurst Olives

Home to some of the most juicy Kalamata olives and tastiest olive oil around, gorgeous Oakhurst is well worth a visit. They do daily tastings during which you get to smell and sample the products, including the delicious tapenade made using a secret recipe which you’ll merrily lap up using their delicious home-baked bread. It's of course made using Oakhurst olive oil and is some of the best bread we’ve ever tried! The tasting room is a bright, modern space and art lovers should take the time to walk around to admire the various pieces on the walls created by the owner’s daughter. Take a stroll on the grounds after – they’re particularly colorful in the springtime.

There is something so deeply relaxing about staying on a farm. You never have to move too fast along the dirt roads, you can walk slowly and allow your hands and eyes to skim over the vineyards as you breathe in the fresh air. Vindoux is the type of place you don’t really have to leave if you don’t want to. We played on the grass with Caleb, took him on walks in the carrier past the tree houses and through the small patches of vineyards.

We sat on the wooden lookout deck which peaked out over the area where the zebra, wildebeest and springbok munched grass. Caught somewhere between a game reserve and wine farm, we could slowly exhale and forget that we ever lived in a city. Just next door we could admire the brown cows grazing in the mild sun.
