If you're planning a trip to Wellington, South Africa, then Jacaranda's Wine Farm is a lovely little spot to unwind. Rene and Birgit who run the working farm and guest house, have lived in China and Europe and have finally settled down in the quaint town of Wellington in the winelands.

We immediately felt welcome by their warm hospitality (we were greeted with a glass of Jacaranda wine!). Not only does Jacaranda have two adorable dogs, but the farm is also home to eight cats, chickens, and neighbouring cows. It's definitely a heaven for animal lovers! Jacaranda Wine Farm is surrounded by vineyards as Birgit and Rene produce their own wine on the property. As a welcome, we got a bottle of the richly flavoured Jacaranda Shiraz.

Exploring Wellington was lots of fun, and I'll be posting our itinerary soon so stay posted!

Our home for the weekend! This cottage is divided into two, and we had full reign of front part including the scenic porch. Each cottage has an upstairs and downstairs.
We almost packed Tommy and Ani into our car at the end of our trip but decided that Jacaranda Wine Farm was probably the happiest place on earth for them!
The best breakfast and of course the dogs know this...
