Franschhoek hosts Délice

The Franschhoek Wine Valley played host to this year’s Délice Network of Good Food Cities of the World Conference, from Thursday April 7 to Saturday April 9.

The conference, attended by 21 delegates from across the globe, was used as a networking opportunity for member cities to discuss the benefits of promoting global food and wine tourism.

The opening event took place at the La Motte estate in Franschhoek, where guests were welcomed by Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg, patron of Franschhoek and owner of La Motte, before enjoying a meal by chef Michelle Theron.

Franschhoek, partnered with the Cape Winelands District Municipality, was granted membership to this prestigious network in October 2014, the only member in the southern hemisphere.
