Term of the month: fakeation

Monday, December 6th, 2010

A fakeation is a fake vacation, one where you turn on your email auto-responder and change your outgoing voicemail message to show that you’re out of the office. Really, though, you’re in the office, catching up on work.

I think that sometimes we all need a bit of a fakeation. 

Time for Môreson Méthode Cap Classique

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

With the festive season upon us it’s time to stock up on Môreson Méthode Cap Classique.  Whether you’re celebrating or trying to dull the pain of the prolonged family visits, Môreson is a delicious way to get the job done!

We suggest packing that boot (or trunk) full of the award-winning Môreson Solitaire Blanc de Blancs. It’s just won one of only three golds at Veritas, and it’s pretty as a picture making it the perfect choice for the upcoming festivities!

A case, of six, will cost you R534 (including VAT) directly from the farm. For more information call Hanri on (021) 876 3055 or email
