Camphors, the signature restaurant at 317-year-old Vergelegen Estate in Somerset West, has scooped not only sixth place in the prestigious Eat Out Mercedes Benz Restaurant Awards, but has also won the Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award.
These accolades were announced at the Grand Arena, Grand West in Cape Town on Sunday 19 November.
Camphors was opened five years ago (November 2012) as part of a larger investment in Vergelegen’s hospitality offerings. Named after five giant camphor trees on the estate, it is located among beautiful gardens on the banks of the Lourens River, against a landscape of dramatic mountain scenery.
Vergelegen was the first Biodiversity and Wine Initiative Champion (2005) and its award-winning wine is the starting point when creating the menus. Executive Chef Michael Cooke’s superb cuisine reflects the wide variety of produce sourced from the farm gardens, orchards and pastures, as well as specialist suppliers.
