Hartford House Sparkles At Diners Club Winelist Awards 2014
Whilst Hartford House is indeed a place where like-minded people gather to converse, learn, share and cultivate their passion for the finer things in life, there is of course a common thread amongst the connoisseur... wine!
Hartford House was honoured last week to host the KwaZulu-Natal leg of the South African Winelist Awards presented in association with Diners Club International. Representatives from thirty of the province's finest restaurants and hotels attended the event with just nine claiming the highest achievement, the prestigeous Diamond status accolade. For the sixth consecutive year, Hartford House is extremely proud to have been awarded Diamond Status for our Winelist.
A dramatic moment arrived in the evening's proceedings as the Diners Club team prepared to announce the 'Regional Best Diamond Award'. An excited yet nervous hush fell upon the gathering as all waited in anxious anticipation. Then came the announcement... "And the award goes to Hartford House!"
What a surprise, what an honour and what a tremendous achievement for our young team, brimming with so much collective talent, passion and serious commitment to the exploration of fine wine.
Hartford Head Chef, Travis Finch and his team were on show and my word did they deliver! An inspiring display of canape and bowl food freshly fueled with ingredients sourced from our region's finest produce suppliers, paired with award winning wines from Steenberg and Glen Carlou and served under the flowering cherry. Simply delectable and most memorable.
Hartford House salutes all the winners and would like to thank Diners Club International for their continued support and commitment to the hospitality industry.
