Date: 26 October
Place: Joburg, Summer Place, Hyde Park
Stellenbosch at Summer Place returns to Hyde Park this October. The one-night showcase of some of South Africa’s finest wines, food and art offers cognoscenti the exclusive opportunity to mingle with the country’s top winemakers and chefs.
Stellenbosch, South Africa’s first and foremost wine route, has long been regarded as one of the country’s most beautiful and cultured destinations thanks to amongst others its heritage, entrancing landscapes and collection of world-class restaurants and iconic wine estates. Stellenbosch at Summer Place, an exclusive experience presented by Stellenbosch Wine Routes and Sanlam Private Wealth, brings this reputation to Johannesburg.
Every year, Summer Place is transformed into a stylish winelands rendezvous that allows guests to indulge every sense at the luxurious cocktail-style affair. In addition, it provides the chance for wine-lovers to stock up on rare vintages in the run-up to the festive season and support a charitable cause – the Stellenbosch Wine Routes Education Fund. The City of Oaks’ fame as a centre of epicurean distinction goes on display with more than 100 of Stellenbosch’s best wines from a variety of vintages offered for tasting by winemakers and estate owners, and available for purchase.
Alongside them will be sublime food creations presented by a handful of renowned chefs
Satisfying artistic urges at this year’s event will be live music performances while art enthusiasts will also get the privileged chance to view rare pieces from the Sanlam Art Collection – one of South Africa’s finest and most extensive of its kind.
