Toomuchloveliness: Buitenverwachting

Buitenverwachting Amuse Vintage Pairing Experience

A little while ago I spent the day exploring Constantia with The Entertainer. I have been using The Entertainer for a good five years now and love the app. Favourites on this year’s app include burgers at Hudsons, Sushi at Manga and a shellac pedi from Hey Gorgeous. For our Constantia day I tick off…

Toomuchloveliness: Franschhoek Boutique Hotel

Tips on How to Spend a Weekend in Franschhoek!

Franschhoek is a little cultural hot spot about an hour out of Cape Town. We recently visited for a weekend escape and ticked off a few of our Franschhoek bucket list items! If you’re looking for exciting ideas of what to do in Franschhoek I have you covered. We’re talking beer, fine wine, delicious food…

Botriver Rainbow Spring Weekend

Over at Toomuchloveliness, we are huge fans of Botriver. I think it is the coolest kick-ass town just about ever. We first discovered Botriver on our trip up to their first every Botriviera Spring Weekend. We booked a little self catering spot at Uitwaaien, signed up for the fancy Friday dinner and had a glorious…

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

We found ourselves in the winelands without a plan or destination in mind. This almost never happens- I am such a control freak that normally all our weekends are planned to the T. Instead of getting on our phones and googl’ing, making lists and getting recommendations on twitter, I left it up to chance. And…

Stellenbosch Wine Tastings with a Twist

With summer holidays around the corner we are all looking for exciting adventures to fill our days! If I told you how much leave I have over the festive season – you may never talk to me again. BUT because of this I am working super hard to come up with exciting holiday plans! Its…

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…

A Quick Round up of The Botriver Spring Weekend

I don’t tend to write posts diary style but we had such a lovely weekend away exploring Botriver that I thought I would squeeze in a quick post and share our weekend. I have really fallen for the little town of Botriver which is truly charming. I spend a lot of time in between farms…

A Taste of Tulbagh: Saronsberg Wine Tasting

I don’t normally write blog posts about one wine farm. The honest truth is that there isn’t really enough content. I often write about a few farms in one go, I’ll write about a day out or I’ll write about an amazing lunch at a wine farm. But I really couldn’t resist writing about Saronsberg!…

Where to drink wine in the Robertson Valley

I am well aquainted with the wines of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and even Elgin but I have much to learn about the Robertson Wine Valley!   Excelsior Wine Estate Excelsior is a beautiful wine estate and you can join them for a wine blending experience. All the details are in this blog post over here.  …

Excelsior Estate

During our time in the Robertson Valley we were based at Excelsior Estate for our two nights away. The accommodation is not amazing – and its pretty pricey for what you’re getting so I would actually recommend exploring elsewhere. There are some amazing rental options in McGregor which you can find here and fromĀ our visits…
