This week, Capetonian food and wine lovers have the perfect opportunity to indulge in the wonderfully diverse culinary and wine cultures of our country at the See Festival, from 22-27 November.
The festival brings together people from all corners—artists, designers, architects, activists and the public—to exchange ideas and create installations and performances that represent equity in our city’s public life.
The “taste and terroir” event forms part of the See Festival and is a multi-course food and wine event led by the president of the South African Sommeliers Association, Spencer Fondaumiere, and chef Jocelyn Myers-Adams.
The menu and wine choices were created by Spencer and Jocelyn in line with the festival’s themes of rituals, memory, belonging and nature.
The wine offered is made by Cultivate, an initiative established in 2020 by entrepreneur Zahira Asmal to promote black talent in the local wine industry.
Zahira is also the founder of The City agency, the group that developed the See Festival.
The multi-course event takes place at Cultivate’s premises in Salt River, amongst an urban setting of cafés, studios and shops.
Cultivate has a wine bar, a tasting room, a retail store that sells their wines, and a venue for collaborative events.
Spencer joined the team at Cultivate this year, and has been collaborating with Zahira on various cultural projects.
“Cape Town’s residents bring multiple, abundant food histories, and this is an opportunity to explore and share those stories, guided by two global citizens of the food and wine worlds,” says Zahira.
