    Sustainable Wine List of the Year South Africa, presented by WWF Conservation Champions 2023

    ëlgr Restaurant on Kloof Street in Cape Town took advantage of the third alcohol prohibition to revamp and hire a new sommelier, LeRoi Van de Vyver, previously of the famed Belthazar Restaurant and Wine Bar. The main wine list is incredibly well thought out, and LeRoi has introduced an ever-changing Sommelier Selection list with some of South Africa's most coveted allocation wines. (Fun fact: LeRoi has made it to the finals in many sommelier competitions, so be sure to ask him about the stress of using port tongs on stage!) Just like great wine, the food is meant to be shared.

It’s worth it.

    Address: Silvermist Wine Estate, Main Road, Constantia Nek, Cape Town

    Sustainable Wine List of the Year South Africa, presented by WWF Conservation Champions 2023

    La Colombe is South African fine dining at its best with white table cloths, a horde of service staff, refined detail everywhere and set on the mountain side surrounded by a forest of blue gum trees on Silvermist Wine Estate at the end of a steep and winding road leading up from the top of Constantia Nek. This is terrain that reassures 4x4 drivers that they made the right vehicle choice, don’t try to walk it up. The food and service is top notch and the wine service is quirky, showing confidence and personality. You will always have a good time here.
