Women’s Month Wine Evening

To celebrate women’s month, a wine pairing evening will take place this month on the 26th.

In partnership with Siwela Wines and Randela Wines, two women-owned wine brands, there will be a Food and Wine pairing evening at the Waterford restaurant on the 26th of August in honour of Women’s Month. The event will consist of a five-course dinner, each course paired with a glass of great wine, and entertainment. Tickets can be booked at Quicket and are R580 per person. 

Siwela Wines is a virtual winery started by Siwela Sweetness Masoga, a biotechnologist and winemaker. She studied biotechnology at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Cape Town, choosing to focus on the science of winemaking and fermentation, hence her interest in the field of winemaking. While working in the industry, a very white-male-dominated industry, Siwela was inspired to start her own brand to transform the sector. 

Randela Wines was founded in 2021 by Phumla Randela, a professional business accountant, financial advocate and public speaker. She is the chief executive and director of both Randela Wine and Lushaka wealth solutions. Although Randela Wines focuses mostly on red wine, Randela Wine also makes rose and MCC, now widely available in restaurants and stores.
