The highly acclaimed wine list at Kashew Restaurant was curated by Newmark’s Group Sommelier, Marlvin Gwese, who has worked at some of Cape Town’s leading establishments. The wine list is extensive, featuring over 70 of the best South African wines and many up-and-coming wine estates that are bringing sustainability into their farming practices. This is perfectly in line with Newmark’s focus on providing quality dining experiences for its guests at all the hotels in the company’s portfolio.
