The Author

My name is Alison. I live in the Cape Town Winelands with my husband and fellow wine enthusiast, working as a lecturer, writer and editor.

I hold a WSET Diploma and a Cape Wine Academy Diploma. Needless to say I love wine.

  1. Alison, your blog is fantastic. Wine, food, lifestyle, humour…what more could anyone want? (except crochet, of course…)
    I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award: .

    Jill 🙂

  2. Dear Jill
    Thank you for the lovely kind words. I love your blog too, and you were my inspiration to start blogging in the first place.
    Thank you for the nomination – most honoured!

  3. That’s it….I’m hooked! Love your blog and will be back -often- to bask in your warmness of your posts….especially when I am getting that “ANOTHER glass???” look from my hubby!

    • Thanks Maryanne. Your blog is wonderful and has such beautiful photographs. I have seen it mentioned on Nice Piece of Work, but have only now taken a good look.

      At least there is one moderator in your home! We give each other the ‘ANOTHER glass??’ look frequently, and then both promptly have one 🙂

  4. Hi Alison, love your blog.

    We would like to invite you to the launch of our new wine, but I cant seem to find your email adress to send you the invite, my email –, could you be so kind to send us your email adress?

    Kind regards
    Saxenburg Wine Estate
