Dr. Laurel Serieys will talk about her ground-breaking research on caracal in the urban environments of the Cape Peninsula, South Africa, while guests enjoy canapés in the Milkwood conference room.
Following the presentation, Executive Chef Christo Pretorius and Neethlingshof winemaker De Wet Viljoen will serve a delectable three-course food & wine pairing dinner in the award-winning Azure Restaurant– which includes a taste of the Neethlingshof’s aptly named ‘Caracal Red Blend’. The origin of the name is explained thus: ‘Almost never seen – the Caracal’s enigmatic presence is always felt. There are signs of this beautiful cat known as the rooikat (red cat) returning to the Neethlingshof estate now that islands of Renosterveld have been re-established amongst the vines.’
