Wine-lovers and food-fanatics from Hilton and surrounds can look forward to testing, sampling and pairing wines, from top wineries from around the world, with local dishes at the annual Hilton Food & Wine Fair which takes place on Friday, 8 September at the Protea Hotel in Hilton.
The Fair, now in its sixth year, offers guests an evening of mingling with the Hilton community while enjoying local and international wines and a plethora of bite-sized dishes while playing their part in giving back to Hilton Pre-Primary School.
“Our annual Hilton Food & Wine Fair brings the tastes of the world’s wineries to the community and provides an opportunity to relax and enjoy socialising with family, friends and neighbours,” says Hilton Quarry Superspar & Tops’ Store Manager, Greg Downs.
In 2011, the Hilton Food & Wine Fair partnered with Hilton Pre-Primary School to raise funds for the school. This year, all fundraising will go towards upgrading “the Ducklings” area, their youngest class of children.
Hilton Pre-Primary’s Principal Suzie Hilliar says the funds raised at the annual event has enabled the school to invest in the education of teachers, upgrade their sewerage system, purchase a JoJo Tank and fix general maintenance issues.
“We are so appreciative of all the effort that Hilton Quarry Superspar and the community put into the wellbeing of our school,” said Hilliar.
“We are passionate about the local community and hope to make a difference within the community’s structures with events like the Hilton Food & Wine Fair. Hilton Pre-Primary School do a wonderful job in providing our children with a solid base to make the most out of their schooling future,” says Downs.
Wineries taking part in this year’s event include Vrede en Lust, Olive Brook (Tops Wines) and Beverage Emporium who will show case various wines and craft beers. In addition, a delicious selection of local cheeses and delicatessen sampling boards will be available from Col’Tempo, Oscars Deli Meats, Riversmead Poultry, Triple A Beef, Indezi River Creamery, Gourmet Greek, and Graceland Cheese.
