The Cape’s cold season is when many food and wine lovers enjoy indulging in leisurely culinary experiences – and a highlight will be three innovative, hyper-seasonal winter dinners at Camphors, the signature restaurant of 318-year-old Somerset West estate Vergelegen.
Camphors scooped not only sixth place overall in the latest Eat Out Mercedes Benz Restaurant Awards, but also took the Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award. The estate was named the first Biodiversity and Wine Initiative Champion in 2005 and remains renowned for its environmental initiatives.
The theme of the first, one-of-a-kind dinner, planned for Saturday 28 July, will be ‘Progression of our Food Source’.
