It’s somewhat reassuring to know that a rep from our Johannesburg residence, The Westcliff hotel, has won the Gauteng finals of the Diageo World Class South Africa Master Bartender competition!
This August The Westcliff is celebrating the exceptional wines and winemakers of South Africa with a series of Evenings of Fine Wine. They will take place every Friday evening in La Belle restaurant at 18h30.
