The Le Kap Lifestyle Fair at Lourensford Wine Estate


Setting the tone with a sumptuous Gala Dinner the night before internationally acclaimed sommelier, Jorg Pfutzner, will take you through a never to be repeated menu accompanied by 9 specially selected and extraordinary South African wines. 

The exclusive 4-course dinner created by celebrity master chefs Bertus Basson and PJ Vadas also showcasing their culinary expertise with an exhibition kitchen. The black tie affair has a limited capacity.

Born out of the appreciation and understanding of the finer things in life the LE KAP LIFESTYLE FAIR, delivers a curated selection of gourmet foods paired with fine wines, luxuriously inspired couture, dressage with music (musical kur) and showjumping. All these elements are traditionally associated with a discerning lifestyle for individuals who have an appetite for luxury.

Savour some bubbly at the Moët & Chandon Champagne bar, experience the tastes of the vintage gourmet food market, sip the latest vintages of our country's leading wine estates or enjoy the offerings at the Glenmorangie Whisky Lounge.

Held in the breathtaking Helderberg region of the Western Cape, the LE KAP LIFESTYLE FAIR will capture a national audience who naturally embraces a lifestyle of relaxed luxury. The inaugural event will be hosted at the historic Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West, on the 9th of November 2013, in a Relaxed Country Chic atmosphere that is exclusive, yet accessible to all.

This Gourmet food, Wine, Fashion & Dressage lifestyle fair will establish itself as a superior annual event on the social calendar, due to its unique combination of popular lifestyle activities and the manner in which it will be presented. Its appeal to a local, national and international audience will, beyond doubt, make this event an annual institution not to be missed.

PAL Foundation Exclusive Launch at Soho House New York


Situated on one of the most exclusive rooftops in New York, Conor Mccreedy, Colin Cowie and Mike Eilertsen hosted an exclusive launch event for Protecting African Lions (PAL) Foundation with over 350 VIP guests and friends at Soho House.

“Over the past 50 years Africa's lion populations have plummeted from over 200,000 individuals back in the 1960's to fewer than 21,000 today. A shocking number if you consider the size of that continent”

Hedge fund managers, activists, entrepreneurs, supermodels, artists, philanthropists, actors and many more, all united together to bring awareness to the African lion, a majestic creature whose population is rapidly decreasing.

The mission of this global organization is to raise awareness and to start protecting lions from further decline against poaching, non regulated hunting and many other issues that will allow the lion to thrive in its natural wild habitat. It has established a foundation designed to protect lions and to become a key strategic partner for governmental and other affiliated charity programs such as Ubuntu Educational Fund, The Mara Foundation and many more.

Guests were treated to traditional South African delights from Madiba Biltong. They were also invited to purchase the exquisite MccreedyBlue PAL bracelet, featuring a hand-made button in brass, silver, gold or platinum, designed by South African designer, Lianne Landman to further spread awareness and support the cause.

Guests included Ndaba and Kweku Mandela (the 2 key grandsons of Nelson Mandela), Tyson Beckford, Jen Goodall, Rohan Marley, Julia Jansch, Colin Cowie, Shaun Dewet, Jacob Lief, Constantine Bisanz, Dr Geoffery Scott Caroll, and the founder himself - Conor Mccreedy.
