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 [...]

Bosjes Kombuis marries Art, Wine and Food

Bosjes, the place of where Art and Sophistication came to marry...and they may as well have done it in the iconic Chapel.

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.
