Then I’ll eat out three times that week and spend the weekend away from home while the veggies slowly decay in their packaging. I know it’s […]

Discovering the Helderberg

Discovering the Helderberg

I recently had the opportunity to spend two days in the Helderberg region of the Stellenbosch Wine Route. You may have noticed that I spend a lot of time exploring Stellenbosch, so I know the region quite well, but this was my first time at a couple of the farms we visited. I also got […]
