Cape Town has got another accolade under its belt, being voted ”the most underrated foodie destination in the world.”
Food magazine Chef’s Pencil asked 250 chefs and foodies about the place they thought topped the list, and Cape Town ranked first as the “premier South African city for food, catering for every taste and style – haute cuisine, street food to die for, eclectic pop-ups.”
One of the eateries they acclaimed was La Colombe.
This was awarded the thirteenth-best restaurant in the world in TripAdvisor’s annual, global Traveler’s Choice Awards in the fine dining category.
And the only restaurant mentioned on the African continent, where the list as dominated by European restaurants, with the Auberge du Vieux Puits in France taking home the grand prize.
Groot Constantia has just been named as ”the best in the world” for a Sauvignon Blanc produced on this iconic wine estate, by one of the most prestigious competitions in the world which chooses the best wines from across the globe, the 2020 International Wine Challenge (IWC).
This is the first time in ten years that the award for the best Sauvignon Blanc has not been won by either the Loire or New Zealand.
A wonderful accolade for Groot Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine farm which was established in 1685 and has been producing wine uninterruptedly ever since.
