While we all know that Wine On Water is loads of fun, and possibly the best jol in St Francis Bay (except the kids will tell you that Billy’s Beach is better) did you know that it is a charity-based event?
From the Wine On Water Website
“While Wine on Water is enormous fun for our guests, this event brings so much more to our community.
This is the flagship fundraising event for the Rotary Club of St Francis and every penny raised goes towards supporting Rotary projects in greater St Francis along with the many charities serving the community. These include those looking after our environment, the NSRI, the school and pre-schools in Sea Vista and child welfare organisations, our senior citizens, various animal welfare charities, and our Victim Support Unit .
But of particular significance is the employment opportunity to the young men and women of Sea Vista, who serve as the extremely important deck and street marshalls, keeping everyone safe and ensuring the event flows smoothly.
This year we were able to offer a work experience opportunity to one of the young matriculants introduced to us through the Sibanye Ladies group in Sea Vista. These opportunities go a long way to assisting these young folk who face a daily struggle to find employment in increasingly difficult times.
And then last but not least, our Wine on Water guests bring a much needed economic injection to our tourism sector and local businesses, and the spin-off of that is more employment.
The Rotary Club of St Francis is proud to be of service!”

Wine Of The Week
Labri Chardonnay 2022
One cannot mention La Bri, without referring to the past, as the property is an essential piece of the South African wine history and culture.
According to the Franschhoek Museum, the original grant of La Bri is one of the oldest Huguenot-allocated farms in the Franschhoek Valley
It was one of the first of nine farms granted to members of the main group of Huguenots who sought sanctuary in the Cape in 1688.
The name ‘La Bri’ is probably derived from the region in France but we prefer the French translation for ‘the refuge’, a perfect name for this property, as it is safely nestled in the imposing amphitheatre of the Franschhoek valley.

Crystal Head Vodka At TOPS
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do. It is why we craft the purest, smoothest vodka with one of a kind packaging and imaginative thinking. Crystal Head uses only the highest-quality ingredients to create unique expressions of ultra-premium vodka that are completely additive-free. Original, crafted from locally sourced Canadian corn, Aurora, crafted from English wheat, and Onyx, crafted with Blue Weber agave. We do it for all the creative spirits who think differently—to inspire them in their creative pursuits and to bring out their creativity without compromise. Unlike other vodka brands, Crystal Head views the world differently, without limitations.
The Crystal Head bottle was designed with the creative spirit in mind by creative people. Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander designed the iconic skull-shaped bottle as a symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment, only the best to hold their multi-award-winning spirit.
