Wine tasting has long since been regarded as an art of the most delicate kind. Utilizing one’s senses of sight, smell and taste to discern flavors and tones captured by the fermenting process can be a delightful experience. From dry whites and sparkling wines to full bodied red wines, the multiplicity and variety available are as diverse as the graceful language used to describe them.
Valentines is that time of the year when you have the opportunity to show your significant other how much they mean to you, and the best way to have done that in 2012 was to treat them at Arebbusch Travel Lodge.

They are partaking in the Nampharm “Riding For A Smile” initiative which aims to raise funds for disadvantaged childern who require facial reconstructive surgery. An official departure event was held which Arebbusch Travel Lodge was privileged to be able to sponsor a venue and catering for. Arebbusch Travel Lodge would like to take this opportunity to be thank Nampharm for spearheading this initiative and wish all of the bike riders a safe journey.
