This area boasts lavish furnishing and a private bar, catering to the most discerning customers, who will enjoy views of Lions Head and the surrounding city skyline as they party the night away.

The Loop is committed to uniting sounds and styles in a way that challenges expectations. No limits. No compromises. Just rollercoaster rides of great DJ’s and live performances, that have all collided to create one super club,” says Wai-Szee Sing, co-owner of The Loop.

Delheim PicnicsSummer has arrived, the mercury is rising, and attention turns again to the sunny Cape outdoors. Enjoy a gourmet picnic on the lawn at the riverside behind the Delheim cellar (mere meters away from where Bessie the cow drank 20 litres of wine: though we don’t suggest a repeat performance by our visitors!) seven days a week at 12h00, until the end of April 2012. The best score of all is the Delheim wine, sold at cellar door prices to Delheim picnickers, sans a restaurant mark-up.

On the menu this season is smoked salmon; a salad of home-smoked chicken breast with celery, spring onions, homemade pickled pumpkin and pomegranate kernels; a curried lentil salad with mint and peppadews; mascarpone cheese & fig spread; leberwurst pâté; locally-made blue cheese; freshly-cut biltong; homemade dolmades; zwiebelkuchen (German onion pie); beef samoosas; pimento-stuffed olives from Chrisna’s Deli; sun-ripened cocktail tomatoes; freshly-baked farm bread; focaccia and crackers.

Those who still have room for dessert can opt for fresh fruit or something sweeter – koeksisters & Gabriele chocolates (which I’m sure would be Bessie’s choice; but don’t let that dissuade you!) A large bottle of sparkling water is included in the price and a vegetarian option is available on request.

A basket for two is a bargain at R260 (excluding additional beverages), while a basket for four can be had for R520.

A special basket for children under the age of 12, priced at R65, includes a bratwurst hotdog, carrot sticks, raisins, Gouda cheese, crackers, yoghurt, fresh fruit, a chocolate brownie with ice cream, and a fruit juice.

Best of all, if you bounce out of bed to discover a sunny day, let us know before 10h30 and your basket can still be prepared. Contact the restaurant team at restaurant@delheim.com or telephone (021) 888-4607.

The Santam Swartland wine & Olive route is coming to Kirstenbosch

It has become fashionable for South Africa’s wine routes to hold festival weekends, but what do you do when you are part of the country’s largest wine district, where the close to 25 members are scattered across an area of over 10 000 square kilometres.

For the Santam Swartland wine &Olive route, which stretches from Malmesbury to Porterville, the answer was clear.

“We decided to take the Swartland to town, so on Saturday October 8, Kirstenbosch Stone Cottages will become an honorary part of the Swartland,” said Jolene Janse van Rensburg, Santam Swartland Wine and Olive Route Manager.

The region’s extraordinary soils, little irrigation and some of the oldest wine stock in the country have produced some exceptional wines, and the winemakers themselves will be in Kirstenbosch to show off their wares.

The 50 or more stalls will include:

  • The innovative young winemakers behind the Swartland Revolution, (Mullineux, AA Badenhorst);
  • The affable Danie Malan whose family has been producing remarkable wines at Allesverloren 1872;
  • Piketberg’s finest – organic wines from the elegant Org De Rac and the top class Cap Classique from Nieuwedrift;
  • The quality wines from Swartland Winery, the gateway to the Route; and
  • The new kids on the block: Franki’s Vineyards (featuring vintage cars), Nuweland, Nassau, and many more wines that underline the quality of this route.

The winemakers will be joined by exhibitors selling a large range of products and produce, including jams and preserves, olives, cordials and fresh-baked Swartland breads.

Included in the mix will be some top class potjies and other gastronomic delights for which the Swartland is justly famous.

“We will also be displaying some of the Swartland’s best art and crafts, she said.

The Riebeek children’s steel band, a community project, will provide some of the entertainment on the day, together with other local musicians.

“We want Capetonians to realise that some of the country’s best wines are just around the corner. We are only 78km away, and we are sure that once people realise what we have on offer they will take the short drive up the N7 more often,” Van Rensburg said.

To find out more, and to keep up to date with the happenings in the Swartland, visit the Facebook page at http://on.fb.me/nrGbJL or the website http://www.swartlandwineroute.co.za/
