Fodor's Expert Review Mons Ruber Estate

De Rust Winery/Brewery/Distillery

This estate is named after the Red Hills that dominate the landscape and whose soil creates the perfect environment for growing grapes with a high sugar content. So it's not surprising that this winery specializes in dessert wines as well as a fine brandy. There is a lovely restored 19th-century kitchen, and an easy hiking trail stretches 1½ hours into the fascinating Red Hills.
