What her clients are saying....
“We met Kim for the 1st time when she became our guide through the Winelands of Stellenbosch. Friends of a friend, referred her to us & we couldn’t have been more pleased!” – Frank & Susan (USA)
“Kim is extremely knowledgeable about wine and takes the trouble to listen to one’s interests and needs. Despite her impressive knowledge, she is not at all a wine snob – really important in dealing with people of all levels of knowledge about wine.” – Neale (UK)

The magical vineyards
....in the Western Cape
This wine region with a difference lies a mere 65 kilometers north of Cape Town, named Swartland or ‘black country’ after the indigenous Renosterbos, which turns a dark colour at a certain time of the year, it could be argued that some of the most innovative wines are produced here.
Just a short and sweet 20 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, Durbanville is, perhaps, best known for its outstanding flinty, herbaceous Sauvignon Blancs. However, you would be remiss if you didn’t take the time to try her fantastic red wines and MCC’s (Methode Cap Classique) aswell. Outstanding cool climate examples of Chardonnay, Shiraz, Pinotage and Merlot are also produced this pretty little hilly wine area.
This world renowned wine growing region with her premium, award winning cool climate Sauvignon Blancs and Bordeaux Blends is just a short 20 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and 30 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. Nestled beneath Table Mountain National Park and commanding unsurpassed vistas of False Bay and the Constantiaberg & Table Mountain Ranges, lies this, the oldest wine-making region in the southern hemisphere.
Stellenbosch has the most wine producers of all the wine producing regions in Southern Africa and is probably the most famous. She is steeped in history and home to some of the country’s best known wine estates. All this yumminess lies just 40km east of Cape Town – a quick 45 minutes’ drive.
