Stellenbosch at Summer Place: A meeting of artists, makers and craftsmen

It’s time for one of the most glamorous events on the Jo’burg lifestyle calendar. On 29 November, Sanlam Private Wealth and Stellenbosch Wine Routes will once again bring all of the finest things Stellenbosch has to offer to the City of Gold. By SANLAM PRIVATE WEALTH.

Don’t miss the eighth annual Stellenbosch at Summer Place showcase – a celebration of masterpieces created by esteemed winemakers and chefs from the Stellenbosch region, paired with a visual feast of original artworks and soulful sounds.

This year’s theme, “Artists, makers and craftsmen”, has been inspired by Sanlam Private Wealth’s appreciation of fellow masters of their craft, whether it involves creating delectable flavours, mesmerising sounds, alluring wines or beautiful art.

Get ready to sip and savour top quality wines from South Africa’s most famous wine route. More than 40 Stellenbosch winemakers and estate owners will showcase 100 show-stopping wines from eight winemaking categories, all carefully chosen through a strenuous selection process.

While rubbing shoulders with these iconic winemakers, guests will have the opportunity to watch top chefs from the culinary capital of South Africa prepare their signature dishes and then enjoy these with matching wines.

A true delight for guests at this glitzy affair will be the gourmet extravaganza. You will get to revel in the culinary prowess of Gregory Czarnecki (Eat out Chef of the Year 2017) of Waterkloof Wines restaurant – a hillside-perched venue in wrap-around glass that offers spectacular views and a premier dining experience, as well as Michael Deg of Equus (at Cavalli Wine and Stud Farm), famed for his fresh and vibrant approach to ingredients and culinary masterpieces.

You will also sample delights from Michael Broughton of Terroir – consistently rated among SA’s best restaurants – and Virgil Kahn, head chef at Indochine restaurant and expert craftsman of Asian-influenced food with his signature South African twist.
