Rwanda: Uncorked' Dinner Due

This Saturday, Events Africa and Illume Creative Studio, will launch "A September Affair", an inaugural dining event series that will feature a different theme every year designed to promote a product or activity to a select group of invited guests.

Guests will enjoy delicious cuisine and entertainment, and will be able to sample products on offer - from wines, to clothing and jewellery, music and art.

The inaugural theme is 'Kigali Uncorked' and the featured product is a collection of South African wines from the Mont Rochelle vineyards in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Mont Rochelle vineyards were first planted in 1994 and were bought by the late Miko Rwayitare in 2001, making him the first black African to own a wine farm in South Africa.

Along with the wine, invited guests will enjoy a six-course meal prepared by world class South African chefs, and be entertained by South African jazz musician Nomfundo Xaluva. Xaluva is a rising star and her album, Kusile, will be in stores this September

According to the organisers, "A September Affair" seeks to create an annual event to showcase international, regional and local products, introduce Culinary Tourism to Rwanda, and add to Rwanda's social calendar of prestigious events.
