‘I’ve been at Uplace since “the first harvest”, when plans were originally developed. The goal has been to make it a wonderful place with something on the menu to cater for everyone. I’m a culture lover myself. And not just of artistic endeavours: I’ve developed a taste for wine culture. These are passions that I can experience at Uplace. At just one destination, I’ll be free to enjoy theatre groups and international artists and try wines from all around the world. And there are a lot of other experiences to pursue at Uplace!”
