Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…

Small Plates with Bistro Sixteen82

Small Plates with Bistro Sixteen82

We are very spoilt in Cape Town having winelands just round the corner! Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are easy trips but Constantia is even closer! Sometimes we are a little lazy and not so well organised. The Constantia wine farms make a perfect weekend filler when we are looking for something fun to do that requires…

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

I can never resist a good picnic – especially when you’re picnic’ing on a wine farm with a glass of chilled rosé in one hand and a hunk of french stick with a slab of brie in the other. Grande Provence did an amazing job of providing all that and more. We arrived at Grande…

Lunching at Blanko in the ‘burbs

The Alphen Hotel is one of my favourite places in the Southern Suburbs. Their hotel is my favourite of 2016. I love the breakfasts at La Belle and now I am a huge fan of Blanko. Blanko has replaced 5 Rooms with a more bright, light and open dining option. I enjoyed the food at…

Crumbs and Creams

I thought by now the craze would have worn out. But it really hasn’t. I arrived at Crumbs and Cream on a lovely wintery day with a queue of twenty people heading out the door! I could not believe it but the queue moves quickly with the guys up front being organised, in charge and…

Lunch at The Tokara Estate

Tokara is a magnificent wine estate and now I have finally ticked “Lunch at Tokara” off my foodie bucket list. We had the best seat in the house with the most beautiful views! Tokara is perched on top of the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch and offers visual delights both out the window and on the plates.…

Picnic Partying at Warwick Wine Estate

I really love picnics. I love the easy, fresh, delicious food. I love camping out in the sunshine. And they are even better when there is wine involved! Warwick in Stellenbosch is famous for their picnics and were one of the first farms to introduce a gourmet picnic on their rolling lawns. I have visited…

Hoghouse Parties at Spier

I am a huge fan of The Hog House in Ndebeni and as such was delighted to find out about The Hoghouse in Spier. If you have been following my blog – you will know of my huge love of Stellenbosch. I was recently teased as being the unofficial Miss Stellenbosch – and to be…

Lunching at Gabrielskloof

I have been wanting to visit Gabrielskloof for the longest time! They offer picnics in the summer and farm style family lunches in the winter months. They produce incredible wines and promise fantastic views. But sadly our weekends always filled up with other things and we never had the chance to visit. When we booked…
