Every first Friday of the month, a special event takes place at Winchester Mansions.

Grapes, Gourmet, Gallery, also known as 3G, is a night out at the hotel’s Harveys Restaurant, bringing winemakers, artists and skilled chefs together to harmoniously present their craft. A three-way pairing if you will – wine from renown local wineries are showcased alongside various forms of art from local virtuosos, complimented with a five-course meal prepared by skilled chefs from around these parts.

The popular 3G night has been scheduled up to the end of 2015 for now, with five more still to follow up until then:

7th August – Hartenburg
4th September – Reynecke
2nd October – Stellenzicht
6th November – Morgenhof
4th December – Delaire

Last week we attended coming-together of Paarl winery Landskroon, the works of mysterious local artist Mr. Damage and a superb five-course meal by Executive Chef Jochen Riedel. It was a night of appreciation for these crafts, including speeches by the people behind the wine, food and art.
