From a mad botanists conservatory to a swanky hotel cocktail lounge and ‘boudoir to-die-for’. There will be more than just a little something for everyone.
Who will be showing their talents? Francois du Plessis, Karen Robert, Kyle Roux, Laduma Ngxokolo, Michelle Throssell, La Grange Interiors,Nicola Townsend,Pim Verdoorn,Salome Gunther,Sarah Ord Interiors,Sprout Design,Greg Mellor.

The other big event that we going to be taking part in is KAMERS & CCDI 5-8 June 2014.
Seeing that the Castle of Good Hope is the original port of trade in the Cape, it is appropriate that Kamers Vol Geskenke will complete the circle of design during WDC2014 by bringing trade back to this majestic historic site.
The Castle of Good Hope will host 110 design exhibitors fashioning a visual feast of creativity, entrepreneurship, music, food and wine. The venue is truly something everyone has to experience as for finding the finest little something for yourself or the perfect gift for a friend; it’s a must. Come say hello to us and enjoy a glass of Genevieve MCC!

This is a great initiative and Genevieve MCC is pleased to be part of the New School Grand Cru’s first festival, hope to see you there!
Press release received from Môreson:
On the 26th of April 2014 Môreson will be hosting the inaugural back-to-basics New School Grand Cru Chardonnay.
Our aim, along with 22 other participating Chardonnay producers, is to showcase the amazing versatility of Chardonnay … the noblest of noble cultivars. We haven’t restricted the participating farms to style nor have we limited them to still-wines because what we’d like, more than anything else, is for them to bring their ChardonnAy-game to our festival.
We, as South African Chardonnay producers, are shaking things up; we’re kicking all pretentious elements to the curb; we’re focusing on kick-ass Chardonnay and the people involved in imagining and creating these them.
The Deets: Tickets: Tickets cost R150 per person and include a glass and 10 tasting coupons Tickets are available for purchase via webtickets. Alternatively you can get hold of Patricia – firstname.lastname@example.org – to organise your tickets and payment directly.
Date: 26th of April 2014 Time: 1pm – 6pm
