Facebook Feedback Friday: which is your favourite wine farm to visit on a wintry day in Cape Town?
Natalie Roos’ body was born in Johannesburg… but her soul was always Capetonian. At the age of 14, Natalie started work in the television industry, presenting popular local kids TV show, KTV. Ten years and another TV job later (presenting celebrity gossip show JIP on Afrikaans music channel MK), Natalie made the move down to Cape Town where she started her blog, Tails of a Mermaid (www.tailsofamermaid.com). Her love for the internet and all things communication-driven became a natural progression to a career in Social Media, where she worked in an agency managing the online presence, content and reputation of various brands.
Natalie’s passions include cats, communication and Cape Town.
Yesterday, we asked the fans of our Facebook page, I ♥ Cape Town: which is your favourite wine farm to visit on a wintry day in Cape Town?
We had over 250 comments, with some fantastic suggestions of farms in every wine valley in and around Cape Town, from Franschoek to Stellenbosch, Robertson and beyond! We couldn't possibly list them all, so visit our I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page to read through the comments – or leave a comment with your favourite.
Here are a few suggestions from our fans:
