Becoming the leader in highly curated wine, food and cultural experiences takes time. First, we needed to visit every popular wine farm, meet every winemaker and try every tasting. We tucked into the ﬁve-course meals, snacked on the gourmet picnics and gave all of the strange pairings a go (wine and music anyone?). Then the real exploring began, hitting the back roads on the sniff of rumours to unearth foraging chefs, rebellious winemakers, visionary artists and out-of-the-ordinary encounters. Now we have a collection of the best experiences in South Africa, Portugal and the USA for discerning travellers. We offer the curious explorer an insider’s journey to all of the hidden gems, unmarked cellar doors and the most dynamic local culinary experiences, all topped off with a dash of adventure.We like toexplore sideways.www.exploresideways.com
