My Top Valentine’s Day Picks

Alright. I know. Valentine’s day is stupid. It’s superficial. And I know it’s a big marketing ploy. I know all these things. But I still really like Valentine’s day. I like the sentimental, I like the unnecessary fuss and I like having an excuse to do something special. Valentine’s doesn’t need to be a big…

Hartenberg Picnics

If you’ve been following along on the blog as of late there has been a strong picnic theme. I am a huge picnic fan! I love lazy lunches, lying on picnic blankets, chilled bottles of wine and escaping to the winelands! The first picnic to set off the craze was the beautiful chicnic at Allee…

Chicnic’ing at Allée Bleue

Now Chicnic is a new term for me. Apparently I’m a little behind the times and not as cool as I once thought I was. A Chicnic is a chic picnic! Its a picnic in style! And Allée Bleue‘s picnic under their trees with white table cloths, salads in pretty glass jars and fine wine…

The Rumbullion at The Roundhouse

The very best way to spend summer is overlooking Camps Bay under a large white umbrella with a Pimm’s in reach at The Roundhouse’s Rumbullion. The Rumbullion is the outside dining area of The Roundhouse and whilst still maintaining its same level of quality, good service and incredible food tones the formal atmosphere down to…

The Wild Oats Community Farmers Market in Sedgefield

The Wild Oats Community Farmers Market can be found on the N2 just as you’re about to exit Sedgefield. The market is run every Saturday morning which makes for a perfect breakfast or brunch stop. I went with very low expectations and was blown away! That will teach me for being a city snob! The…

Beau Joubert & Wine Swimming

I had the absolute privilege of attending Beau Joubert’s Annual Wine Swim- The Stomp & Sip event! This is a truly special event and helped to tick an item off my bucket list I never even knew I had. But first let me introduce Beau Joubert: Beau Joubert is a wine farm situated out in…

Bramon Wine Estate

I know Dom Perignon didn’t actually say it- but its a nice quote and a genius marketing scheme! And its written on the walls at the truly wonderful Bramon Wine Estate. The Bramon Wine Estate is a magical place found in The Craggs of Plettenberg Bay- and is the first wine farm to be found…

Zorgvliet Picnic

We enjoyed a really lovely picnic at Zorgvliet awhile back. I had never been before- so was excited to explore! I love picnics on wine farms- I think they are the best things to do in summer and great for romantic dates. Was such a beautiful farm and a wonderful experience.   Here is the…

Cape Point Vineyards Community Market

The Cape Point Vineyard is located in Noordhoek- which often feels like the end of the world for a lot of us lazy town-dwelling Cape Townians. But you need to trust me that it really is worth the drive. I went to their Thursday Market recently and I left with a big smile on my…

Warwick Gourmet Picnic

I bought an amazing Citymob deal for a Warwick picnic, wine tasting and vineyard safari. The picnic was definitely on the gourmet side! There are about four different picnic areas- I would recommend sitting in the beautiful wooden privacy pods- but booking is a must!! We were seated on the lawns. They set up huge Warwick…
