Has anyone actually checked the weather for this weekend? Maybe you should take a look, because we are in for a treat.
You get wine drinkers and then you get wine consumers – and it turns out one country is doing its utmost to take home that latter crown.
There’s a wine farm in Stellies who employs ducks that act as a natural pesticide, and people across the pond are going crazy over it.
There’s nothing like relaxing with a couple of friends over a bottle or two of wine. Just how do our expressions change as we sip on the good stuff though?
We love giving things away to the loyal readers of 2OV, and some of our competitions have caused quite the stir. You remember the Naughty Hipster right?
Like most humans you probably enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning, and like most people it’s probably crafted for you by the barista rocking the machine. You know the type, the kind of person we like to call a Badass Barista. Now listen to this
There will come a time when you are without a bottle opener – shudder at the thought for a second and then learn how to combat such a tragedy.
There are many reason behind the choice of alcohol people reach for when it comes to partying, we investigate which is the healthiest
Comparing three liquids drunk during meal times, red wine was by far the better of the three – and for more reasons than one.
Fancy a day out at one of the Cape’s most revered wine properties? Our Aimee was lucky enough to enjoy just that with Peter Goffe-Wood alongside her.
We’ve long heard tales of riches discovered at the bottom of the ocean but here’s one haul we would be happy to get our hands on. Bottoms up guys.
The worst thing about this time of year in Cape Town is that it’s usually colder inside than out, which is the perfect excuse to get your mates together and head on down to HQ.
Aimee’s show, which usually took place on Thursday evenings, will now air from 2pm- 3pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.
How does having an epic wine-tasting experience without leaving the sanctuary of Cape Town sound? Pretty darn good, if we don’t say so ourselves…
Get out of town for a mini break. Roll down the top, let your hair down and prepare for a few days of relaxation and indulgence. What’s not to love about that?
I spend most Sunday afternoons religiously drinking ice cold white wine spritzers. It prepares me for Monday by vanishing any important things I should be remembering and enables me to lay in the garden and day dream.
Don’t be that person, shivering on the couch after a bad night out. There are ways to make sure you have classy, care-free fun, without paying the price.
Aimee, of the ‘What The Food’ Show on 2oceansvibe Radio (Thursdays 18h15 – 20h00) had the chance to drive out to the Stellenbosch winelands to experience the unusual offering at Villiera Wines – unusual because they include a game drive as part of the whole experience!

All that wine-tasting and training is about to come in handy, as it’s been revealed that wine buyers are not getting exactly what they’ve paid for, with Italian police uncovering a massive wine fraud scandal, with cheap imitations in circulation that look and appear just like the real thing.
Here’s the thing: Winter means spending a heck of a lot more time staying indoors and a darn lot less time out in the sticks. But, what if we were to tell you that you can hop in your car and in 60 minutes or less, arrive in a place of such natural beauty that […]
How many of us have thrown a fabulous soirée only to end up with way too much booze left over? Ok, admittedly that doesn’t happen very often in the realm of practicing hedonists, but the other frightening occurrence comes in the form of those situations when we don’t buy ENOUGH booze.

Pinot Noir – two words you’ve been hearing a lot, lately. The delicate grape has enjoyed some serious attention recently, and with the likes of Ard Matthews spouting these sorts of statements wherever he goes, we’re hardly surprised: “I’m convinced that Pinot Noir is one part heat-sensitive grape and 99 parts angel blood. It is the perfect blend between rosé and red, which means it can and must be drunk as often as possible, where possible, if possible.”
