Walk Back In Time – centuries of winning awards

In 1685 Simon van der Stel, the Governor of the Cape Colony, was granted property which he named “Constantia”.

Groot Constantia Reflects on World Water Week

“Watch water flow – there’s no space it doesn’t fill. Be like water, and give to everyone and everything.” – Daniel Levin. We could not have said it better ourselves.

A Perfect Pairing of Chocolate and Friendship

Growing up, I remember watching a popular chocolate advert in the 90’s, where the animated kid sits next to a friend eating his stack of chocolate covered candies and finally gets to his last piece, and wonders just looking at his glum friend to share it or instead savour that last little bit of deliciousness.
