Winelands for Less

Send to Kindle

We’re all watching our budgets at the moment. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take a much deserved break. You just have to plan a little better and look around for the best deal. A weekend away doesn’t have to break the bank! While celebrating “all things vino” in July 2009, we thought we’d help you plan a discounted weekend in the Winelands. Consider the following specials (valid July 2009) …
