Restaurant Jardine in stunning Stellenbosch

Today we’re heading to the bustling university town of Stellenbosch. I love the Cape Winelands and try to dine out in one of the many amazing eateries there as often as I can.

More tasty fare at ever-lovely Terroir

One of our favourite days in the Cape involves a golf/lunch combo.

Wine tasting in the Stellenbosch Valley

The Cape Winelands are food and wine heaven. Beautiful views, amazing restaurants, stunning wines…only problem (if it can be classed as a problem) is there are so many wine estates. Seriously, it can get very intimidating deciding where to try next. So I calmed down and, with a little  help from my friends, decided to […]
