Tshepo Mohlala is the talented young man behind eponymous African luxury denim brand, Tshepo the JeanMaker. Born in Lydenburg and raised in Tsakane, a small township situated in the east of Johannesburg, he founded his business in late 2015 in a quest to live out his passion for denim, which he says was inspired by his aunt’s classic yet quirky personal style. The stylish denim wear he creates is universal and timeless with original and eccentric nuances.  

Well-known wine brand, Nederburg, recently set out to celebrate South Africans forging their own paths in their own inimitable ways, via an exciting national marketing campaign entitled #TellMyStory. Aimed at reflecting Nederburg’s multitude of stories, given a history that spans more than 200 years (since 1791), it also mirrors the winery’s innate nature to do things in their own unique manner.  

NEDERBURG’S THE WOOD DIARIES: A ‘SMOKY’ WINTER EXPERIENCE

A few weeks ago I was part of a small group that experienced an intimate late afternoon event at Nederburg in Paarl to learning about the intricacies and skill associated with not only the ageing of wine in oak, but also the blending of a number of wines matured using different types of oak and ageing techniques, into one beautifully balanced blend.  

These recipes were specially selected for Tour De France but you can try them anytime

Perhaps the most memorable thing about Loire is the delectable food that is prepared and served here. It is famous for so many dishes and preparations, but its goat’s milk cheeses and classics like pork rillettes are certainly top-of-the-list.

For a fresh lunch, prepare a salad using mixed salad greens and a lemony vinaigrette, add sliced tart green apples (such as Granny Smith), put chunks of goat’s milk cheese (such as chevin) on top, and enjoy with Nederburg The Winemasters Sauvignon Blanc.
