Cheers To De Grendel Fans!
There are a lot of restaurant and wine awards throughout the year, but there’s something particularly special about the annual Klink Awards. The wine tourism awards rely on the people that frequent the incredible variety of wine farms in the Western Cape to vote for the spots that they rate above all others. It was such an honour to host the awards, as well as to be in the Gourmet Category alongside some of the other Winelands’ restaurants we respect so much.
This year, the fourth Klink Awards, we were thrilled to walk away with two awards. The first, The Award for Best Gourmet Restaurant on a Wine Farm, acknowledged the incredible work the staff of De Grendel Restaurant do in ensuring our restaurant continually delivers top-class food.
The second, the Award For The Klink Nominee with the Most Consumer Votes (The Supernova Award), also went to De Grendel Wine Estate. Thank you so much to our loyal customers for recognising our work.The fact that it is the public that decides this vote (the awards racked up 11 363 votes this year) is incredible and it shows that we here at De Grendel are providing a full dining experience in the winelands that people are looking for and enjoying.
We would also like to congratulate every establishment that was nominated in all of the categories of this year’s Klink Awards. There are so many fantastic vineyards offering such a large spectrum of activities, cuisine, tours and unique wine tastings that we here in the Western Cape are so privileged to have on our doorstep.
"All of Klink's nominees this year interacted with their fans during the voting period, yet it was De Grendel that really engaged them and which ultimately lead to its success," said Monika Elias, The Klink Award's founder.
We look forward to being involved with the #KlinkAwards next year.
