WACKY WINE WEEKEND
Who ever said date night should be confided to a single evening? Plan ahead, take some time off and make a weekend off it at the Wacky Wine Weekend in the Robertson Valley. The Wacky Wine Weekend
is one of the most highly anticipated wine events in the Western Cape and showcases the finest wines from cellars like Van Loveren
as part of a weekend-long celebration that features great music, entertainment and so much more.

THE FORGOTTEN ROUTE
Weird, wonderful and uniquely South African, this exceptional tour takes you on a quest into South Africa’s hinterland as you follow in the footsteps of the men that tamed the African wild. It includes a train trip to Matjiesfontein, stopovers at some great micro-wineries and all sorts of shenanigans from the tour leaders. A must-do!
A FYNBOS & WINE PAIRING
Sustainability superheroes and makers of top-notch tipples, Bartinney Wines
