A glorious summer’s day on a wine farm outside Stellenbosch, wine tasting in a cellar, gin tasting in the biggest gin bar in Africa, lunching by a lake on a Salmon platter of perfection all the while surrounded by vineyards and mountains of blue… Our visit to Asara was a very pleasant way to spend […]

Weekend Wanderings: Camps Bay Beach

The beauty of my home town does not go unnoticed… but it does often get taken forgranted so when I arrived early for a media lunch on the Camps Bay strip recently I decided to be a tourist in my home town (for half an hour!) The day was a brilliant blue – the overarching […]

Weekend Wanderings: Rhebokskloof Wine Estate, Paarl

Back when the weather was chilly and the trees were bare we paid a visit to Rhebokskloof Wine Estate near Paarl for a lunch during our day out in the area. I somehow missed posting about this spot… and unfortunately I’ve now forgotten what I ate too so it can no longer be called a Restaurant […]

Weekend Wanderings: Nederburg Wine Estate, Paarl

Our last stop on a day trip to Paarl was an iconic South African wine farm, Nederburg. It seems ridiculous to say that this was my first visit but it was… and afterwards, I wondered why! Wine tasting with kids in tow doesn’t usually work but at Nederburg this wasn’t to be the case… because […]
