WINE-lovers and food-fanatics can look forward to testing, sampling and pairing wines, from top wineries from around the world, with local dishes at the annual Hilton Food & Wine Fair at the Protea Hotel from 6 pm on Friday, September 8.
Backed by the Hilton Quarry Superspar & Tops, the Fair, now in its sixth year, offers guests the chance to enjoy local and international wines while helping to raise money for Hilton Pre-Primary School.
This year, all monies will go towards upgrading the Ducklings area used by the youngest children.
Hilton Pre-Primary principal, Suzie Hilliar, said the funds raised since 2011 had helped the school to invest in the education of teachers, to upgrade their sewerage system and purchase a JoJo Tank and had also paid for some general maintenance.
“We are so appreciative of all the effort that Hilton Quarry Superspar and the community put into the well-being of our school,” said Hilliar.
Store manager, Greg Downs, said he and his staff were passionate about making a difference within the community.
He added: “Hilton Pre-Primary School do a wonderful job in providing our children with a solid base to make the most out of their schooling future.”
Wineries taking part in this year’s event include Vrede en Lust, Olive Brook (Tops Wines) and Beverage Emporium, who will show case various wines and craft beers.
There will also be a delicious selection of local cheeses and delicatessen sampling boards will be available from Col’Tempo, Oscars Deli Meats, Riversmead Poultry, Triple A Beef, Indezi River Creamery, Gourmet Greek, and Graceland Cheese.
Tickets are R100 from the Hilton Quarry SuperSpar at the door.
