Excellent wine, glorious food and good company, not to mention some of the most picturesque surroundings and hospitality second to none. With its rugged beauty, this small valley is fast becoming a draw card to visitors for whom its gorgeous scenery, surrounding winelands and family-run cellars are all very appealing.
