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 theĀ Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch and offers visual delights both out the window and on the plates.…

Picnic Partying at Warwick Wine Estate

We really love picnics. I love the easy, fresh, delicious food. And 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…

Toomuchloveliness: Delaire Graff

Delaire Graff for Art and Wine

Our visit to Delaire Graff was extra special because of my new found love of South African artists. They are first and foremost a wine farm with a gorgeous hotel and award winning restaurants. BUT they can seriously deliver on the art! I chase natural light, bright colours and vast landscapes. I am obsessed with…

Bonne Esperance

  I love Cape Town – I truly do, but nothing is better than a quick city escape! We have some amazing getaway options from Stellenbosch to Franschhoek, Elgin and even Hermanus and Langebaan. We recently snuck away to Bonne Esperance for two nights in the sleepy town of Stellenbosch. We spent the weekend walking…

Stellenbosch University Botanical Gardens

I recently escaped to Stellenbosch for a weekend which is one of my favourite things to do. I normally find somewhere lovely and hidden away. This time we stayed at Bonne Esperance, which sounds like the name of a wine farm, but its actually a little Bed and Breakfast and Self Catering spot bang in…

The Full Vergenoegd Experience

Wedgeview Country House and Spa

After plenty of #SeeStellenboschValley adventuring we needed to kick up our heels and have a little rest and relaxation! I cannot think of a more perfect place than Wedgeview! Arriving at Wedgeview was like taking a deep breath! Goodness, but it was beautiful! Wedgeview was the perfect place for a time out! Even better we…

#SeeStellenboschValley and Where to Taste Along the Way

If you’ve been following along with my recent winelands adventures you will know all about our #DiscoverHelderberg trip! We did some amazing wine tastings, great food and wine pairings at Longridge, a five star lunch at Waterkloof and a gorgeous dinner and sleepover at 96 Winery Road! I thought all of this was too good…

Getting to know Webersburg

I am incredibly lucky most of the time. I get to have a normal life with this blog on the side for extra excitement. I get to write monologues about great risotto, paragraphs on pizza and get ridiculously excited about amazing wines. I get to do that whenever I want. But then over and above…
