Fitting that her name is Bella, because as we all know, Bella means beautiful, like the wines produced by My Wyn, like Franschhoek, and like the whole Winelands region. Also suitable because Bella the dog looks a lot like Kristen Stewart's Bella from …

South African wines - though quite renowned, our experiences with them prior to arriving in South Africa have been less than stellar, even when sampling their pinotage, the country's signature grape. Thankfully, things have been different since arriving, when we started to find some truly excellent wines available here, perhaps because intelligent …

... age, Salmon Roses, and Uramaki Yohohama Rainbow. Our meal ends with a pot of green tea and we head back to our tent, having just dined like kings. A most comical irony.
