WDC 2014
COMING SOON - MUSIC VAN DE CAAB MUSEUM

Cape Town will be a focal point for the international design community in 2014, with design-focused projects and events hosted in the city throughout the year as part of World Design Capital 2014 (WDC2014). We can proudly say that our soon to be launched Music van de Caab Heritage Centre is a recognized project of WDC2014 (in the theme ‘Bridging the Divide’). Since 2007 our rural music project has proved to be a catalyst for transcending the artificial racial divisions that were created by apartheid.

Our Music van de Caab (that opens in April) will house an exhibition that explores the musical heritage of the Cape in the form of an interactive audio and visual display as well as through indigenous instrument replicas, now being made and played by our very own farm people! Please Tweet this with us and use our WDC project hashtag #WDC536!

 
Trap, Trap, Trap!

Chef Shaun's Recipe
BACON KOFTA KEBABS WITH GARLIC TOAST

A kofta is a Middle Eastern, Indian and Balkan meatball or meatloaf. In their simplest form, koftas consist of balls of minced or ground meat, usually beef or lamb, mixed with spices and/or onions. In India, Turkey and Iran, koftas are usually made of lamb, beef, mutton or chicken, whereas Greek and Cypriot varieties are usually made of beef, veal, pork or mixtures of same.

This month Chef Shaun shares with us his version of a bacon kofta kebab accompanied by roasted garlic toast.

Prowein 2014
HAGEN & MIGNON OFF TO GERMANY

Later this month our winemaker, Hagen Viljoen, and general manager, Mignon du Plessis, head off to Dusseldorf, Germany to attend ProWein, the International Trade Fair of Wines and Spirits. It will be an exciting first visit for Viljoen to ProWein under the Solms-Delta flag. Two of the wines he’ll be taking with him are his just-bottled Solms-Delta Amalie 2013 and Solms-Delta Lekkerwijn 2013 - the first wines completely vine-to-bottle under his watch as winemaker – part of a uniquely South African stable of wines offering an array of tastes and styles.

“For me, you can be very influential in your winemaking and try to manipulate and overpower, but there’s a move at Solms-Delta towards greater elegance and expressiveness in wine,” he says about his winemaking approach. “The overall aim is to be understated.” We wish them both a safe and successful trip!
