Thanks to this blog, I’ve been very fortunate to be exposed to South African wines to a greater degree than the average person. Whether it was being invited to wine estates to try new vintages…
For any South Africans living in London, hankering for a taste of home, or non-South Africans interested in tasting authentic South African food, there is a treat coming to London in August 2018. A 7 course pop-up experience featuring not only popular South African dishes, but drinks too. Enjoy a Savanna cider, Amarula and a selection of Nederburg wines with the various courses.
I love going to conferences; I attend them whenever I get the chance, even though I don’t really need to. Even if I am not there to network, I enjoy the inspirational stories I hear at start-up conferences and get a kick out of hearing about the latest technology developments. It’s worth the time and money to attend. I did some research and these are the tech conferences I’d like to still attend this year if I could.

It’s that time of year again. Time for the wine festival that put both Wellington and Pinotage on the map. Time for the king of wine festivals. Time for Pinotage On Tap at Diemersfontein. Here are my 5 reasons to get to POT this year and have a pair of tickets to giveaway too.
I like to attend these events even though I could probably just publish the results from the press release that gets sent to me. The reason I like to attend them is that we get to taste the winning wines. It’s not often you find yourself in a room with 10 of the best chardonnays in South Africa. It’s a rare opportunity to compare them and find a favourite. Which is exactly what I did.
This weekend is Wine On The River in Robertson. This is a great wine festival because it’s not as crazy as the Wacky Wine Weekend and everything happens in one place so you don’t have to move around from estate to estate. I went yesterday to check it out and here are some top reasons to get out there this weekend.
In anticipation of Heritage Day, Lanzerac has put together a fabulous event on the 19th of September. The hotel’s executive chef, Stephen Fraser and Jenny Morris will be collaborating to impress your taste buds.
Many people thing the Good Food & Wine Show has become boring. They are not incorrect, it has stagnated a bit. But out of nearly 200 exhibitors, surely there must be some worthwhile stuff? There absolutely is, but the trick is, how do you find it? That’s where I come in. As one of the judges of the stands at the Good Food & Wine Show this year, I had to walk around and give each stand some attention. I took notes, and I compared notes with my fellow judges and I have come up with a list of things you need to taste at the Good Food & Wine Show.
Some of my favourite photos from Taste of Cape Town 2015 plus my top 5 things you need to know to get the most out of the event.
