Cape Town has long been regarded as South Africa’s most stylish city, especially with a new wave of internationally renowned restaurants (most notably, The Test Kitchen and The Potluck Club), upgraded hotel options and several cultural highlights, including the spectacular and moving Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art and the Crypt Jazz Club at St. George’s Cathedral, a key historic site and former spiritual home of Bishop Desmond Tutu.

Host Your Next Event in Urban Wine Country

While urban wine country might sound like an oxymoron, it’s actually a reality at the stunning City Vineyard in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The water-side venue is the perfect host for your next event — whatever that may be, from 20 to 200 guests and from cocktail party to plated dinner.

While it delivers plenty of grown-up and sophisticated wine experiences, many of its wineries and businesses recognize oenophiles may have kids in town. Here, you will find successfully cultivated attractions and activities intended to engage curious young minds and expand young palates.
