Breaking News: Summer Breakfasts ‘al fresco’

The first of the patio breakfasts for the summer season was a great way to welcome a busy season.

We were lucky to host Dan McDougall,  2009 Foreign Correspondent of the Year at the British Press Awards and currently the Africa correspondent for the UK Sunday Times, his wife, the gorgeous Navdip Dhariwal, a BBC Asia correspondent, their two spirited kids and their au pair, Petra.

Dan was voted by US-based Ethisphere Magazine  as one of the world’s most influential journalist in the field of ethical trading.

In other Swellendam news we are happy to report that this weekend sees the 10 year anniversary of the Old Gaol restaurant. We will be posting on that after the party on Saturday night.

In wine news, we are proud to put the final touches on our white blend for the season, and there may be a few new additions to Augusta’s wine output. But more about that later!
