Guy Fawkes Day, held annually on 5 November, is known for dazzling displays of fireworks – also on our Cape beaches. And while pretty to look at, these fireworks leave a massive mess in their wake, and this litter lands up in the ocean with disastrous consequences for marine life. This year, the beachhouse wines will be partnering with Clean C to rid our beaches of the debris caused by fireworks and restore them to their natural, pristine state.
This year World Cleanup Day will be celebrated on 15 September 2018, and beach lovers all over the globe will be rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands dirty in an effort to clean our rubbish-riddled coastlines. Our oceans are facing a human-made disaster of mammoth proportions. It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. Apart from being ingested by seabirds and other marine wildlife, a lot of this litter washes up on our shores, making beach clean-up initiatives an indispensable part of the fight against coastal pollution.
So what is a beachhouse moment? If you are a regular reader of the beachhouse lifestyle blog, you’re likely to have a good idea, but here are some of the idyllic scenes that spring to mind…
· It’s a long, lazy beachside lunch with good friends, good wine and the freshest seafood, soaking up the sun and relaxing vibes.
· It is an afternoon siesta in a hammock overlooking the ocean, and the gentle murmur of the waves lulling your mind away from meetings and deadlines, and into blissful tranquillity.

I’ve long been a fan of this honest, easy-to-drink, satisfying red wine. The sweet nose is floral with plush dark fruit and a meaty note with a whiff of the smokey tar that made me write ‘SA’ on my note. Wines should signal where they come from, and this perfectly-priced Western Cape wine does just that.
