COLOUR PAARL PRETTY

In order to know where you are going it is good to know where you have come from. Part of Paarl’s unique and interesting history holds beautiful architectural buildings. A talented local artist has penned them down on paper in line-drawing style and it is available to you for free! Download and print out the drawings and have a good time colouring them in.

Engagement in creative activity has a way to create a space that makes one feel safe and comfortable. Your mind is blank other than what you’re doing at that very moment, colouring-in. Adult colouring-in has become quite a thing and we are turning to crayons and felt-tips for their soothing and therapeutic qualities. We hope that our drawings will help you beat the stress of covid-19 and provide some sort of art therapy.

Paarl has many examples of Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Cape Dutch buildings dotted along our oak-lined 12km-long Main Street. It is one of the best-preserved 19th-century streets in South Africa.

CELEBRATE MOM ON MOTHER’S DAY, INSPIRATION FROM NEDERBURG WINEMAKER, ZINASCHKE STEYN

Mom – she’s a nurturer and protector, a guardian angel of sorts. She deserves to be celebrated for her courage and warmth, and that special touch she brings. Nederburg can help you do so tomorrow on Mother’s Day!

Look no further for the perfect gesture to make your mom feel like the heroine she is. Treat her with a specially-prepared classic South African dish – bobotie – accompanied by a fine wine such as Nederburg’s very delicate The Beautiful Lady Gewürztraminer 2019. A favourite pairing of assistant winemaker Zinaschke Steyn, she says she’ll be spoiling her mom, Michele, exactly this way as soon as she can following South Africa’s national lockdown. She’s also encouraging those who are not able to be with their moms on Mother’s Day, to do the same. Read more
