Dune Ridge turns four

Dune Ridge Country House is celebrating its fourth year since opening its doors way back in 2012 and to celebrate put to has a calendar of great Gourmet Dinners starting from Friday and running each month through to October.

Renowned for its wines, Dune Ridge holds a Diners Club Platinum Award for its outstanding wine collection, will, in partnership with NLR Wines, be presenting a food and wine pairing this coming Friday with winemaker Clayton Reabow presenting Moreson Estate wines. On June 29, winemaker Lourens van der Westhuizen visits Dune Ridge with a selection of Arendsig Wines followed in July when Anthony de Jager brings some of the Fairview collection. This is followed in August with Simon Smith from Louisvale presenting the wines with the final event on 7 October featuring Kevin Grant from Ataraxia.

But Dune Ridge is not only about wine and their magnificent cuisine for in the short time they have been operating they have already been finalist and winner of the prestigious Lilizela Tourism award winning the Provincial award in their very first year and almost every year since. Not only does Dune Ridge offer outstanding accommodation but offers guests an array of activities from star gazing, frog safaris and a several trails have been extended taking hikers deeper into the surrounding dune system.

Dune Ridge also hosts wonderful events and is the first choice for the Open your Eyes fund raising talks where they provide not only a superb meeting venue but put on a wonderful spread of sweet and savoury treats after each event much to the delight of those attending these talks. Recently they also host what one hopes will become a regular St Francis event when the presented a Classical music soiree.

Congratulations to Sarah Jane Swanepoel and her team for a top class facility that St Francis can be proud of.
