With our planet under siege and threat from carbon emissions, wastage, single-use plastics and more, there can be no doubt that ‘going green’ is essential. In fact, this drive for more eco-friendly practices and methods needs our gravest support throughout every industry.

Yet, for years now, the wine industry has quietly shown the power of sustainably minded farming – through ..read more

Not all of the Cape’s history is pleasant (in fact, much of it is fraught with battles, slavery and devastating Cape storms) – but it is still important. Especially as it has influenced both our modern-day country and city. History has always fascinated me, so whenever I travel, I seek out historical places, facts and places of interest ..read more
