DGB, the premium wine and spirits producer and distributor, and the leading liquor supplier in South Africa, are proud to be the official wine sponsor of the Eat Out Woolworths Restaurant Awards 2023.

Often referred to as ‘The Oscars of the South African Restaurant industry’, the awards ceremony will take place this Sunday, the 19th November 2023, at Grand West Casino.

The awards will see the much-anticipated revealing of the one, two and three star rated restaurants for the year, along with a host of special awards, including the announcement of the coveted Eat Out Woolworths Restaurant of The Year.

Guests attending the awards will be indulging in a decadent 5-course culinary experience prepared by an impressive all-female lineup of chefs. The fine fare by chefs Jackie Cameron, Eleanor Coetzee, Ronel de Jager, Megin Meikle, Motheba Makhetha, Charné Sampson and Carla Schulze, will all be paired with an incredible selection of fine wines from the DGB Prestige Portfolio, which includes, Boschendal, Fryers Cove, Bellingham, Backsberg, Old Road Wine Co and The Last Elephant from Franschhoek Cellar.

The one off pairings, which will be presented on the evening by sommelier Laurie Cooper, were carefully selected through numerous conversations and tastings between the chefs, sommelier and organisers together with the DGB Prestige Portfolio sommeliers. The result promising to be an exceptional gastronomic and vinous celebration of the best South Africa has to offer.

In addition to the wines for the menu, all guests will have the opportunity to enjoy fine vintage Cap Classique from Boschendal throughout the evening, with DGB Prestige Portfolio also holding the title of official Cap Classique sponsor for the evening.

“The partnership between Eat Out and DGB is a natural one,” says DGB Marketing Director Andrew Harris. “We both have a mutual commitment to excellence, and we look forward to being a part of this incredible celebration recognising the best restaurants in South Africa.”

As a leading producer and distributor of premium wines in South Africa, chefs, restaurateurs and guests in attendance can be confident in the quality of DGB’s premium wines they will be enjoying as they indulge in an exceptional meal and most importantly, raise a glass to the country’s best restaurants.
