FOOD and wine lovers have an opportunity to share a sensory journey of Cape Town’s richly diverse culinary and wine cultures, led by president of the South African Sommeliers Association, Spencer Fondaumiere, and well-travelled chef Jocelyn Myers-Adams.
This multi-course food and wine event forms part of the See Festival, taking place in Cape Town from 22-27 November. The festival will bring together artists, designers, architects, activists and members of the public to exchange ideas, debate and create installations and performances to encourage representational equity in the public life of our cities.
Spencer and Jocelyn have created the menu and wine to complement the festival themes of rituals, memory, belonging, nature and hybridity. The wine is made by members of Cultivate, an initiative established by urbanist and entrepreneur Zahira Asmal in 2020 to promote black talent in the local wine sector.
The shared experience takes place at Cultivate’s premises in the urban setting of Salt Orchard, a contemporary development of cafés, studios and shops in Salt River. Cultivate’s space is home to a wine bar, a tasting room, a retail store for Cultivate wines, and a collaborative venue for Cultivate members and friends. Spencer joined Cultivate this year and has been collaborating with Zahira on a number of cultural projects.
Date: 26 November | Time: 6pm | Venue: Cultivate, C3 Salt Orchard, 45 Yew Street, Salt River | Cost: R650 per person for a multi-course food and wine experience. Tickets available on Quicket.
