First impression when you reach Babylonstoren – is this a paradise on earth? Babylonstoren is one of the oldest Dutch Farms located between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands, South Africa. This place is so much more than a wine estate or a farm. It's a concept, a philosophy of healthy life style, a place to spend few hours or even days, depend if you just come there for a lunch, shopping, wine tasting or to stay at their luxury hotel. They also offer a SPA treatment, where you can relax taking in the whole beauty of this place. During weekends and holiday season it’s...
A walk in the vineyards of Aÿ last weekend. The Larmat’s map of the vineyards of la Vallée de la Marne in my hand, the green ‘sea’ of vines stretching to the horizon, the sun peeking out from behind the clouds... I was walking past famous parcels. Clos Saint-Jacques and Chaudes Terres, with their vines planted in the 19th c. that survived unscathed the phylloxera crisis and that produce grapes for Bollinger’s ‘Vielles Vignes Francaises’. Somewhere there is also La Côte aux Enfants producing Bollinger’s amazing red wine. Then there is La Côte Glacière and just above it Meurtet, both...
Tokara – one of the most beautiful wine estates I visited while travelling through wine regions and subregions in South Africa. It’s a complex and very tourist-friendly wine estate divided in two independent parts, located in Stellenbosch Mountains. The first building you see when getting there is where the winery itself is located. The building is modern, has two floors: on the ground floor, which is dedicated to visitors, you find a tasting venue with a wine store and a restaurant. When entering the building, you can see steel vats and part of the winery which is on the...

Beautiful natural gardens with unique plane-trees,...
One of the best wine bars in Warsaw, the place we all like to go back for an evening-out with friends or when looking for a professional wine store . They have two locations in Warsaw, each different in style, both based on the same concept: combination of a huge wine store with a bar/restaurant and a tasting room. My favourite location is undoubtedly the one on Burakowska street, occupying the left wing of the refurbished Old Lace Factory. This place has its charm, especially during spring-summer season, when one can sit outside and relax with a glass of delicious wine in hand...
