Thank you to Elgin Valley Tourism for hosting me and allowing me to capture and experience your beautiful valley. I look forward to visiting again soon and show casing more that this INCREDIBLE valley has to offer.

Sea Point’s BEST Hot Spot – Glitz at the Ritz

The iconic Sea Point skyscraper has been a landmark for years. A tall shimmering structure that represented class and sophistication and boasted a revolving restaurant. Over the years it lost its sparkle but with an incredible team of engineers, architects, designers and a strong bold PR team that Ritz has reopened its name and [...]

The pleasure of Paserene Wines

Typing Paserene into Google Maps would pretty much leave even Siri asking if you are sure you know where you are going. The brand new Hot Spot to hit Franschhoek is so new its website and location pin are yet to be established but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to be apart of [...]

The Belle of the Wine Industry – Bellevue Estate

Bellevue Wine Estate is nestled along the prestigious wine growing Bottelary Road in Stellenbosch. A white colonial style wall marks the entrance of this well loved family estate. A windy dirt road leads you to the gorgeous Dutch style tasting room and restaurant venue perfect for an afternoon lunch any time of the year. [...]

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.) Three life sized perfectly pruned trees stand tall as you enter the parking area as if to [...]

Black Elephant Vintners

Black Elephant Vintners was a concept developed by three good friends who shared many common interests. One of which was definitely wine. Not just any wine, unpretentious wine. Wine for real people. Together they have become the three musketeers in wine making and are at the forefront of wine making in various varieties. Experimenting and [...]

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 [...]
