The beautiful Catharina’s at the Steenberg Hotel

I popped into the Steenberg Hotel estate recently for an event…

Now the last time I was at this beautiful hotel was way back in Sep 2012 when they still had the Gorgeous by Graham Beck bubbly bar there.  So yeah, it had been a while, don’t ask me why, it’s just one of those things.

At […]

Say hello to The Fishwives Club

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Patrick Robertson & Ed Thomas, the dynamic duo behind an exciting new boutique wine label called The Fishwives Club.

They’ve only been on the market for about 3 months now and their wine selection is currently limited to two:  a crisp Sauvignon Blanc and a pretty-in-pink Blanc de Noir. […]

Wine cruising with Eagles’ Nest & Warwick Wine Estate

There are so many wine farms in and around Cape Town that I really do believe it’s humanly impossible to work your way through all of them…  But I can tell you one thing that’s for sure, I’m at least gonna give it my best attempt.

Two farms I visited recently which I haven’t yet […]

You just have to try the wine & canapé experience at Beau Constantia

This past Sunday was a total treat.  I joined a small group of fellow bloggers to try out the fabulous new wine & canapé experience at the beautiful Beau Constantia wine estate.

Beau Constantia is a relatively new boutique winery situated right at the op of Constantia Nek which means it boasts some incredible sweeping views.  The […]

All the action from this past weekend’s Big Bottle Festival

This past Sunday I attended this year’s Big Bottle Festival which once again took place at the stunning Cellars-Hohenort Hotel over in Constantia.

It’s a festival to celebrate great wine served in BIG bottles (we’re talking only magnums and up), great food and just general luxurious living.  What’s not not love?

Luckily the weather played along and it turned out to […]

Organic goodness at the Gaia Food Market

The 2nd market I checked out last Sun as part of my market exploration session was the Gaia Food Market on the Constantia/Wynberg side of town.  You’ll find it at 23 Constantia Rd in the same building that houses the Organic at Heart restaurant. 

Just a tip for parking:  From Constantia Rd, you’ll see their brightly painted wall, then turn right and right […]

The beautiful Tashas

Now I’ve mentioned this before… I’m a bit of a town snob.  I have a strong belief that all the cool things in Cape Town can only possibly be close to my hood.  The term “suburbs” just doesn’t really appeal to me and therefore you very rarely find me hanging around in the Northerns […]
