Groot Phesantekraal Wyne, Durbanville

Donderdag, 5 September 2019|Restaurante, Wynproe|

Met honderde wynplase so te sê op ons voorstoepe is Kaapse mense bederf verby. Ek voel half sleg dat een van die naastes aan my, die Durbanville wynstreek, so vreeslik agterspeen suig. Dis slegs 20km van die stad af en dis ’n streek wat uitsonderlike wyne maak, soos ek laasweek weereens besef het toe die mense van Groot Phesantekraal my […]

Van Loveren Almost Zero rosé and red

Vrydag, 2 Augustus 2019|Wynproe|

I’m a fan. That’s it. Just three words are needed to sum up how I feel about Van Loveren’s Almost Zero range. Well, maybe I’ll add the adjective ‘huge’ into that sentence. Following on from their release last year of Wonderful White – a white ‘wine’ with pretty much no alcohol (as in less than 0,4%) – […]

4-course pairing dinner, The Vault at Taj Hotel, Cape Town

Vrydag, 5 Julie 2019|Restaurante, Wynproe|

These frightfully unsociable instincts are multiplied a hundred times over […]

We are of course spoilt for choice, but Franschhoek’s Anthonij Rupert Wines is one that I often suggest because, after numerous visits, I know […]

Kunjani boutique winery, Bottelary Hills, Stellenbosch

Woensdag, 5 Junie 2019|Wynproe|

There are hundreds of wineries in our beautiful Cape. I figure if I hit one a month for the rest of my life (a girl does have to work you know), I’ll be about 654 years old when I am finally done. Of course my task would be made all the harder by the fact that new wine gems are constantly […]
