Exploring the Stellenbosch Valley: Day 1

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to join a few of my fellow wine and food-loving bloggers for a day out in the Stellenbosch Valley. We actually all spent some time discovering the delicious Helderberg in September, so it was a treat to be invited back, this time to explore a whole new sub-route of the […]

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 […]

The Stellenbosch Winelands with my Mama

The Stellenbosch Winelands with my Mama

My mom is my biggest fan. She’s also my biggest critic. But mostly, she’s my biggest fan. She reads every blog post, every Tweet, Facebook post and anything other post that I put out there. She critiques my work unsolicited. But she also praises my work when praise is due. Very often she will comment […]

Staying in Stellenbosch: Where to Stay in The Winelands

Staying in Stellenbosch: Where to Stay in The Winelands

I’ve mentioned before that Stellenbosch often gets sold short as a day-trip destination; somewhere you go from Cape Town for a day of wine tasting. But really, it’s the perfect place to spend a couple of days eating, drinking and exploring. First of all, it’s one of the country’s oldest towns and is dripping in […]

Roadtripping South Africa: A whistlestop tour with #meetsouthafrica

It’s only Monday morning and I am already exhausted. This time last week I was unpacking from an epic four days at Grootbos, frantically washing my laundry, responding to emails and catching up on work because I only had a few hours before I was off on my next adventure; to #MeetSouthAfrica with South African […]
