  One of my biggest frustrations when my girls were growing up was finding a family-friendly venue that served half decent food whilst offering a great play area.

  As I may have mentioned my eldest daughter is in her first year of studies at the University of Stellenbosch, which means I don't need much encouragement to pop through to the winelands at every available opportunity. The wine farms I used to visit a good twenty years ago offered wine tastings an... Eat, Drink and Be Very Merry at the Fabulous Bodega @ Dornier Wines!
