The doors of Kasselshoop Cheese‘s new bigger tasting facility are now officially open (congratulations, it looks beautiful!) and up to 30 visitors (per tasting) can now be accommodated for a cheese/wine tasting experience (and a look at HOW their handcrafted gouda / chedder cheese in seven different flavours is being produced) on the farm Klein Soebattersvlakte between the N2 turn-off and Stilbaai.
The Kasselshoop cheese is being paired with various suitable wines including the local Baleia Wines (their vineyars are in the Vermaaklikheid area and their winery is just off the N2 outside Riversdale) as well as Jakkalsvlei (between Albertinia and Herbertsdale).
For bookings and more information, visit www.kasselshoop.co.za (open Monday to Saturday 10:00 to 16:00)
