De-vine lunch at Mooiplaas

The Bottelary Wine region is one completely undiscovered gem that I have never experienced until I ventured off the N1 and took a gorgeous winding road completely transporting me through the produce filled fields, vineyard filled hills and cows grazing along the road. A few minutes drive along the iconic Bottelary road, we began ascending [...]

Low carb High Tea at the Cellars Hohenort

I am a huge traditionalist. I love the idea of coming together around delicious food and new experiences. The classic Sunday Lunches and the family style cuts of meat that have been roasted to perfection. High Tea is not often celebrated and it should be. I’m not sure if the reason behind not partaking in [...]

Keep topping it up at Topiary

Overlooking the Franschhoek valley, nestled on the rocky slopes is the picturesque Topiary Estate. The name “stemmed” from the previous owner’s specialized love of Topiary (meaning the art or practice of clipping shrubs or trees into ornamental shape.)

No whining at Van Loveren

Van Loveren is a name that slips off most people’s tongues when in conversation about well known wine farms in the region. When there is a festival in the Robertson area Van Loveren is always packed. This is why I could not pass up the opportunity to visit the estate and put a location to the [...]

Wonderfontein and Paul Rene

The Wonderfontein Estate was established in 1884 to the proud Marias legacy. Today you can experience wines that have taken five generations of cultivation into what it is today.  Elegant easy drinking wines that wine snobs and newer wine drinkers can enjoy. Driving into the estate the perfectly manicured vineyards stretch as far as the [...]

The Art of Food and Wine – Christina Heritage Range

The act of coming together around a table, breaking of bread and the clinking of glasses has been a universal act of friendship, peace and the start of many a good evening. It is with this sentiment that I have paired three of my favourite labels from the Christina Heritage range with each of their [...]

Living the high life at low tide – Harbour House

Harbour House has always been synonymous with its spectacular views of the original establishment situated in the Kalk Bay Harbour. While the location of the famous first born in Kalk Bay lends itself to the easy going tourists and locals catching the sunset over the mountains, the fresh fish coming into the harbour or the [...]
