In this series we introduce you to some of the producers who will be delighting you on the day.

Meet the producers: Caperitif & Swaan Tonic
Beat the heat with this one of a kind artisanal Cape drink!

Caperitif: For almost a century mixologists and barmen have been looking for Caperitif, the ‘ghost ingredient’ found in numerous cocktail recipes but not produced anywhere in the world. In 2014 a Danish mixologist approached us with the idea to recreate it and together we have given birth to the 21st century version of this truly unique Cape Aperitif.

Made from Chenin Blanc fortified with spirit and gently sweetened by the sugar of the grapes, bittered by Quinchona bark and flavoured with some 35 truly Cape ingredients such as fynbos, kalmoes and naartjies.  

This is charged with Swaan Tonic: spring water with natural botanicals – quinine, lime, cardamom and mint.

Meet the producers: Dalewood Fromage
This artisanal farmstead operation produces cheese handcrafted with Dalewood’s own Jersey milk.

"Dalewood’s unique recipes were formulated by Rob Visser who studied Dairy Technology. After years of experimenting, time in France sniffing out traditional cheese making secrets and countless cheese tastings the Wineland range was launched – inspired by the magic and romance of the surrounding vineyards. The range of speciality cheese includes Brie, Camembert and Blue in different styles, shapes and sizes to suit any occasion. Last but not least is the famed Huguenot; uniquely Dalewood, uniquely South African."

Get out of hand at the inaugural Franschhoek Craft Festival this summer. This one-of-a-kind festival takes place at Môreson—a blissful wine farm—on 5 November 2016 between 11am and 5pm.  

Experience the magic first-hand of a selection of specially curated, handcrafted food and drink as well as specialised and limited edition pieces, including art, jewelry and luxury leather goods.    

You’ll be in good hands with plenty of local wines, Cap Classique, craft brews and small batch spirits. Môreson’s farm restaurant, Bread & Wine will be on-hand with their famed, artisan charcuterie and breads, with many other craft and fine food producers taking matters into their own hands offering cheeses, pastries, chocolates and so much more.  

You’ll be happy to give a hand to the live musical entertainment; and bring the whole family, there’s something for everyone to get their hands on.  

GM of Môreson, Nikki Friedman says: “This will be hands-down the best showcase of all South Africa’s local craft-producers. I’m excited not because people are making craft goods, but that there are doing them so fabulously. Come see for yourself.”  

Tickets, which include entry and tastings of the wines on show, cost R180 per person and can be booked directly via www.webtickets.co.za.
