SOCIAL CAMPAIGN:  I’m very excited to head back down to South Africa to participate in a social media campaign in partnership with Stellenbosch Wine RoutesDestinate, and iAmbassador.  I’ll be sharing every single detail of this trip live on Twitter (and perhaps a few Perisope video streaming too) so you can see for yourself the breathtaking scenery, lovely people, amazing food and of course divine vino!  I’ll be staying with a group of other bloggers in a stunning villa surrounded by vineyards and spending a week exploring the Stellenbosch winelands as well as local artists, chefs and vineyard owners.
