Cape Wine is a huge event, with around 450 South African wine makers showcasing their wines.

Accompanying Jerome were Cedric Jacob, Head Sommelier at Constance Halaveli, Sanath Kumar, Sommelier at Constance Moofushi, and Fleur Edel, Head Sommelier at Constance Ephelia.

The team spent 3 days tasting some 600 different wines.

They then travelled to the Swartland region and met with wine makers including Eben Sadie, Andrea & Chris Mullineux, before heading to the Walker bay region, home to Hamilton Russell, Ataraxia, La vierge Winery, Cartology….

Guests visiting our hotels in the Indian Ocean are in for a treat. Jerome said, “After this trip, I can tell you that many South African wines are starting to get better and better, and we have found some really amazing wines.”
