On Monday night, I joined the Cape Etc magazine team (for whom I am a regular contributor) at the Stellenblog 2016 party in Stellenbosch. Stellenblog is now in its 3rd year and is hosted by Mariette Du Toit-Helmhold and the inspirational team at Destinate. Bloggers from all over the globe are invited to join local bloggers to share, connect and inspire our audiences with the diverse offering available in Stellenbosch. The event culminates in a party held at a secret Stellenbosch location, which was finally revealed to us on arrival as La Avenir wine estate.
Guests were greeted with a glass of La Avenir Brut Rosé and then left to explore the beautiful surrounds of the estate and sample magnificent wines and foods from local Stellenbosch vineyards and food related partners. We were thoroughly spoilt with wine and food pairings, met some amazing people, got down on the dancefloor and then were safely transported back home. Thank you Stellenblog and all that were involved in a perfect evening.
