Time 4 Wine @ Brooklyn Mall - Constantia Valley

Time 4 Wine was hosted by Weylandts Brooklyn Mall.

Constantia’s history dates back to 1685 when Governor Simon van der Stel named his property Constantia after the daughter of his benefactor Commissioner van Rheede who granted him a farm here. Governor van der Stel planted orchards and vineyards on the farm thus making Constantia the oldest wine producing region in the Southern Hemisphere with an uninterrupted history of wine making.

Situated 15 kilometres from Cape Town’s city centre, and with the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on its doorstep, the Constantia of today shares its heritage and landscapes of unsurpassed beauty with the locals who have made it their home. The Constantia Valley receives a steady flow of visitors throughout the year who come to enjoy the country lifestyle conveniently located close to all major attractions.

Capital Craft Beer Academy

Capital Craft Beer Academy has so much to offer with 160 craft beers, burgers, ribs & a relaxed atmosphere under the trees in the Greenlyn Village Centre, Menlo Park.

Not sure what to order we started off with a tasting of 6 very different craft beers. Our waiter PJ Waugh impressed us with his extensive knowledge of the different beers available which made this more of an experience. Who knew that beer could be that interesting.

The beers in our tasting are from all over with one very special home grown beer from Silverton, Pretoria.

Time 4 Wine @ DK Burger Bar - Welgemeend Wine Estate

Time 4 Wine was hosted by DK Burger Bar with Welgemeend Wine Estate

Welgemeend has been producing classic French-style red blends since 1979, with emphasis on elegance and a fine balance between fruit and alcohol. Junel Vermeulen, representative of the farm, took us through five very different wines produced by this estate. 

 

DK Burger Bar offers craft beer, gourmet burgers and a view of the Waterkoof golf estate. What else do you need? 

Whether you are looking for a relaxing spot for drinks after work or an intimate private function venue, DK Burger Bar will suffice. 

 

 

Traditional Portuguese Seafood Feast

The festive season is almost upon us and the restaurants are stocking up.

To get into the spirit of the "silly season" we decided to go hunting for some decadent seafood.

We visited o'Galito Woodlands, Friday 16 October 2015 for lunch and selected the freshest products available for our seafood platter, recommended by the manager.

Make sure to always ask the staff or managers what they suggest you order as they have inside information and can guide you to make the correct decision.

For starters we ordered, traditional Portuguese chicken & prawn rissoles, which left us wanting more. They are very tasty and some of the best rissoles I have had.

This dish is not on the menu but only available when in stock. Remember to ask for them.
