Looking for things to do in Cape Town this weekend? The annual Good Food & Wine Show is running right now, from 21 May – 24 May 2015. If you’re something of a foodie, or you simply want to get out and do something that involves wining, dining and entertainment, be sure to check out this event.
Cape Town is quite a foodie heaven and it’s no secret that the city loves its food and wine. After all, it is home to not one but a handful of wine routes, along with many excellent restaurants. The famous Cape Winelands is one of the largest wine-growing regions, but it certainly isn’t the only one. There’s also the Constantia Winelands, the Durbanville Winelands and even the Route 62 wine estate that runs towards the Garden Route.
Throw in an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, a number of good free range dairy and meat producers, plenty of restaurants to suit any palate and some seriously talented chefs, and it makes sense that events such as this weekend’s one take centre stage.
