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 from our visits…

Viljoensdrift and their boat cruise

I’m a sucker for a boat cruise, a charcuterie platter and some delicious wines. Viljoensdrift did a fantastic job of delivering on all of those! Viljoensdrift is a hugely popular wine estate we visited on our adventure in the Robertson Valley. The idea behind the Viljoensdrift boat cruise is that you stock up on picnic…

Flora’s Eating House with Bemind Wine

During our visit to the Robertson Wine Valley we spent an afternoon exploring McGregor. Its a lovely tiny town with one main road which doesn’t go too far. At our request we took a quick drive around and Mira, from Hot Oven Marketing, pointed out their lovely restaurants, hot spots and rental homes. I definitely…

An Easter Picnic with Tangled Tree Wines

The Full Vergenoegd Experience

This is going to be one of those names my mom will not be able to pronounce. My mom is straight out of Ireland and comes with a funny accent. Say Vergelegen in your most British accent and it sounds like an old Irish surname. It would be ver-gel-e-gen in case you’re looking for a…

Spice Route for a Full Day Adventure

I spend a lot of time in the winelands drinking wine. I mean, it’s in the name right? But sometimes you need to compromise. And sometimes the boys want beer. And Spice Route is a fantastic compromise! They have a wonderful beer tasting, a great casual burger restaurant and there is even wine tasting too!…

Tuning the Vine with Tjing Tjing Torii

There’s a whole new thing in town. Just as you’ve gotten used to first Thursdays and third Thursdays and all the rest we now also have Tuning the Vine! Tuning the Vine is a monthly event showcasing some really great wines and fantastic venues.  It runs along Bree Street and down to Wale Street including…
