At Chefs Warehouse we now have our very own wine guru. Guy Harcourt-Wood returns to Cape Town after spending the last seven years serving wine – exceptionally good wine, that is – in London’s finest Michel-starred restaurants. His thorough understanding of the international wine trade and educated palate, gained from regular drinking of the best estate wines from across the world, provides him with a broad base of knowledge. His local knowledge is also solid – since his return he’s been doing freelance wine writing (aside from other wine ventures), which has meant days cruising the winelands sampling with some of the top producers. Ah, the joys of the wine business.

Guy will be be hosting a series of interesting wine classes at Chefs Warehouse, where he’s determined to unearth and share some of our local gems with participants. He’ll also be exploring some foreign wines too, with a Champagne and food evening on the horizon. We’ll keep you informed once we’ve set some dates to his classes. Check back here soon or send us a mail to if you’re keen to find out more.
