Don’t miss the last HQ Fine Wining event of the year with Ernst Gouws & Co Wines

by Karisa

Next Wednesday evening, 2 November, HQ (100 Shortmarket St) is hosting their final Fine Wining evening for the year.  And to end things off in style, they’ve partnered with Ernst Gouws & Co Wines who will be treating guests to a selection of their beautiful wines.

On the night, guests will enjoy HQ’s well known 3 course menu which has been carefully paired with Ernst Gouws & Co Wines.  The evening also includes a welcome drink and aperitif followed by HQ’s trademark starter salad and steak & chips followed by a specially created dessert.

I recently attended their Haute Cabrière Fine Wining evening with bestie Kim and we had such a fun night.  Here are some photos to show you what goes down:

Have always loved this dining area… It’s so gorgeous…


Looks good, no?

Tickets cost R295 per person and is all inclusive (food & wine), so that’s a fantastic deal.  But be sure to book today as tickets sell out fast.  To do so you can contact them on 021 424 6373 or
