Early Morning Solitude

September 30th, 2011

MC, one of our vineyard managers, shares an unusual experience on the farm:

Like any working farm, there is activity at Babylonstoren from sunrise to sunset and apart from all the other activities the farm offers visitors, an early morning walk around the farm is a beautiful thing to do. It is not always easy to get out of bed that early, but the reward of driving around the farm while the sun is rising is priceless. I usually stop at the farm dam and just stand there for a while to plan my day.  There is a timeless feel to it… almost a dreamlike quality to the landscape while everything else starts to wake up.  If you happen to stay at Babylonstoren sometime, please make an effort to get up early one morning to experience this – you will definitely not be sorry.
