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…

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…

Oranjezicht City Farm Market at The Waterfront

I was always a big fan of the Oranjezicht City Farm Market when it was in its original location. And I used to try visit on a monthly basis. However, when it moved to Helen Zille’s home and then again to the V&A Waterfront I fell out of the habit of going. However, on a weekend…

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…

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…

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…

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…

An Easter Picnic with Tangled Tree Wines

Let’s talk about picnics. I’m a huge fan of picnics. I can quite comfortably make a picnic out of anything. A plate of sliced apple and cheese in front of the tv – it’s a picnic. Pizza from the night before in bed – it’s a picnic. Nuts and dried fruit in my car on…

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…
