Jan Harmsgat Country House | Chapter 3 | Robertson Wine Valley

Jan Harmsgat South Africa


The scene that captured my immediate attention upon arrival at Jan Harmsgat Country House was the open fire pit nestled between the dining hall and a grove. After being shown my luxury five star accommodation for the night, I met fellow Bloggers and Roberstonians (is this a word?) around the fire pit. Our host for the evening, Letishia, and her team welcomed me to Jan Harmsgat Country House (JHG) with a mind-blowing taste explosion simply named: Pomegranate Martini.

After the fireside chitchat, we were ushered to a three-course meal with an added twist: the JHG wine pairing. How is this different from normal pairing? Instead of morsels meant to complement the wines, the wines complemented entire courses. One for each and oh-so fantastic, especially the lamb and pecan pie.

Fun fact: Jan Harmsgat Pecan Pie is made from organically grown Pecans on their farm.

I finally announced that I was ready to head to bed and was greeted by a fantastic turn down service with small gifts that were scattered across the room as a Robertsonain Treasure Hunt.

The following morning I indulged in a bubble bath and two cups of coffee in bed. As a busy Mom and Entrepreneur such pleasures are few and far between. So while my fellow Blogger, Keeping Your Sanity, was treated to an early-morning photo shoot, I submerged myself in the warmth and history of the room by researching the lands that JHG lie on from the booklets next to the bed.

Once seated at Breakfast, I was rather proud of myself for opting for the “healthy” choice over a traditional English Breakfast as I knew that I had a full day of Wine Tasting ahead of me and truly believe that the JHG Super Green Juice prepared me well. Knowing that I had just had one of the best night’s sleep and it was time say goodbye, I took several memory snaps of the beauty that surrounds the Country House promising myself that I will return soon.

My favourite Jan Harmsgat Wine: JHG Sauvignon Blanc
