#DoStellies – Cheese & wine at Uva Mira Mountain Vineyards

The 2nd stop on my #DoStellies adventure was Uva Mira Moutain Vineyards.  Their location on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain range, 620 meters above sea level, is what makes this this vineyard extra special.

Their tasting room is aaaall about the views.  On a sunny day you can sit outside, but inside is really […]

Sometimes things happen where I just have to pinch myself… Like when the awesome team from the Stellenbosch Wine Route contacted me and said I could create my very own #DoStellies bucket list and they’ll make it happen!  I mean seriously, how awesome??

We got to planning right away… I already had a few ideas […]

A tour, a tasting and lunch with Laborie Wines

This past Saturday I got to spend my day at Laborie Wines over in Paarl.  My friend D came along as my partner in crime and luckily the weather played along so we could fully enjoy the gorgeous setting they have there.  Upon arrival we were given a little tour of the grounds:

Wine tasting at Brenaissance Wine & Stud Estate

I recently hit the Stellenbosch winelands with my friend Alice to test drive the wine tasting experience at the Brenaissance Wine & Stud Estate (stud here not referring to horses or hot men, rather the Boran Cattle they breed on the farm 😉 ).

The estate is situated in the picturesque Devon Valley area and offers visitors […]

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

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 […]
