One Marine Drive in Hermanus

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

We love heading out of Cape Town and exploring new towns. Despite Hermanus only being an hour and a half away from Cape Town it is a town I haven’t visited for years. One Marine Drive in Hermanus was the perfect excuse to head back and explore a little further. I am going to do a…

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: Hoghouse at Spier

Hoghouse at Spier for Partying and Feasting

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

Botriviera Spring Weekend and Our Weekend Plans

I almost never do pre-event write ups. I have a pretty strict policy that I only write about events after I have attended them. However, there is always an exception to the rule. And this exception is the Botriviera Spring Weekend! I am a huge fan of a lot of the wine that comes out…

The Radisson Hotel: A Seaside Gem

As some one who grew up on the Atlantic Seaboard side of Cape Town I have spent a lot of time at The Radisson. My family did many Sunday brunches, I have enjoyed plenty of sun-downers on their deck and I can tell you their chilli poppers are great! And I can remember sitting on…

Orangerie at Le Lude

I first visited Le Lude on the Franschhoek MCC tour before they were even open. They didn’t have a tasting room or a restaurant. Now they have a beautiful tasting space, food tasting pairings and a gorgeous restaurant! Le Lude makes the most fantastic bubbles and they are on my list of favourite MCCs! Make sure…

Foodie Finds in The Robertson Valley

We spent a lot of time eating in the Robertson Valley. I thought I would run you through all of our delicious meals and where you should be visiting when you’re next out Robertson side. I always thought country fare would be cheap and basic. Some of the spots we visited were pretty affordable but…

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…

I love a Franschhoek adventure! And our recent trip out to the Anthonij Rupert Estate was a Franschhoek adventure of the highest quality!  There is plenty to do at the estate and it should definitely be on your must visit list when heading out this side! You can enjoy a busy day of wine tasting,…
