Thank you to all those who attended the Venison and Tombola lunch on the 14th August 2016. It was a successful day with many happy prize winners. Thank you to all the generous sponsors for these prize donations. As mentioned in the previous newsletter, our 35th Anniversary celebrations will take place on Sunday 16 October, 2016.

The Bottega family will be hosting and subsidising this function with a special menu created for The Fogolar.

Finding a hidden gem of the winelands. The easiest way to get to Idiom is to take the N2 highway from Cape Town past the airport. Follow the N2 until the Somerset West/Strand turn off, turning left towards Somerset West. After you cross the little bridge, turn right at the Vergelegen MediClinic traffic lights and travel along the old main road towards Sir Lowry’s Pass for quite a few kilometres Once you have entered the heritage town of Sir Lowry’s Pass drive through and past the police station on your right and turn first left at the Sir Lowry’s Pass Sports Fields (turn left at the Wedderwill sign). Follow the brick paved private road for 2km’s (beware the invisible speed bumps) and at the end you will see the entrance to Knorhoek farm (est. 1795). Drive to the gate and sign in at the boom. Proceed along the tar road past the field with the springboks, zebras and ostriches. Go past the Cape Dutch Homestead and continue up the hill along the gravel road. At the top of the gravel road, cross over the railway line and head towards the top of Conical Peak and you will have arrived.
