An unlikely but exceedingly pleasant place to while away a couple of hours is the Kristall Kellerei Winery, one of Namibia’s rare vineyards, and a real entrepreneurial venture. Have a tour (30min) of the vines and the fermentation shed, followed by a generous tasting in the delightful, tree-filled garden, full of birdlife. Everything’s hand-processed with a great deal of invention, with the need to keep wine temperatures constant in the extreme desert heat. In addition to their popular white and red wines – though the red is currently in short supply while the vines are replanted following a fungus – they also produce some knock-out schnapps and an award-winning Nappa, Namibia’s answer to grappa. It’s worth ringing ahead to avoid clashing with a tour group.
