Beautiful Table Mountain and Devil's Peak from the vineyards of Steenberg where I met the lovely Californian-born, Cape Town-living Ilana of Finding Umami Cape Town, yesterday evening.

We enjoyed a slightly-unexpected wine tasting; we'd intended to enjoy a glass of wine together while we chatted but no wine is served by the glass (bottle only) and the restaurant was closed on Wednesday evening, so the grumpily-offered option was wine tasting, or wine tasting. We asked for a sparkling wine tasting which I believe is off-book, and it was actually very good value as long as you were happy with being thrown out at 6pm on the dot.

(Who's grumpy now?)


  1. Thanks so much Marie...was so great to meet you. Next time we'll have to drink a whole bottle and have something wonderful to eat with it...not just this tasting stuff!
