Château Dauzac Margaux: The Only Vegan Grand Cru Vineyard in Bordeaux

EARTH, Inspiration, SHOP, Vegan

If you’ve heard of wine, you’ve heard of Bordeaux. Celebrated as one of the world’s best wine regions, Bordeaux is a wine lovers’ paradise. The viticulture in Bordeaux is an art form steeped in tradition. A vineyard taking a more modern approach (or a far more ancient one, depending on your perspective), is Château Dauzac, fifth Grand Cru Classé of Margaux. Château Dauzac is 100% certified vegan. And the only vegan Grand Cru Classé in Bordeaux.

A Night at the Moulin Rouge

The iconic red windmill on the corner of boulevard de Clichy and place Blanche in Montmartre has housed the secrets of Paris for 130 years. Painters, writers, and artists have been inspired for generations by all that goes on inside the walls of the Moulin Rouge theatre. A night at the Moulin Rouge is more than a great cabaret show, it’s a night to remember.

The Pilgrimage to Uki

Inspiration, Lifestyle, SHOP, Travel

Everyone’s talking about Mavis’s Kitchen. It’s the place to go in the Tweed Shire. I’m staying at Mistere Urliup, a short drive away so I’m planning to check what the fuss is all about. Snaking through the hinterland, I feel like I could be on the North Shore of Hawaii with the Dole pineapple plantation to the west. It’s lush. It’s green and there’s a magical feeling. It’s hard to describe. Like the energy, you get when you’re surfing a wave.

Those queues can only mean one thing – good food. And not just any food, the restaurants with the biggest queue are vegan. Here are the top four vegan restaurants in Sydney, Australia (with a cheeky bonus two from around the world).
