Cape Food & Wine is the brainchild of two food & wine lovers: Hendrik & Chrissy Human. We are the owners of Earthstompers Adventures, a travel company who has been operating Garden Route tours for more than a decade. Building on our experience in the tourism industry and our love of all things foodie, we launched Cape Food & Wine Tours in 2014, and Epicurean fine food delivery in 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic.
We believe that Cape Town is one of the world’s most interesting and under-explored culinary destinations, and it is our mission to introduce tourists to the amazing food and wine of South Africa.
With the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, and the world staying in more than going out, we have expanded our tourism business to the sourcing and delivery of fine food. This division is called Epicurean, meaning "devoted to sensual enjoyment, especially that derived from fine food and drink.”
We source fresh, free-range, hormone-free and sustainable local products, and bring them to your door. We aim to inspire home culinary creativity, by offering recipies and meal ideas, to highlight the best in local produce, meats, and fish. We support local, small, family-owned businesses, artisans, fishers, and farmers.
Meet the team
Hendrik - owner, experience consultant & logistics
After studying tourism in Stellenbosch, Hendrik followed his passion and started Earthstompers Adventures in 2006 and has been in the tourism industry ever since.
Weekend outings for Hendrik and Chrissy always involve food & wine adventures and exploring the beautiful Western Cape. On one of these outings in 2014, they decided to turn this passion of theirs, exploring Food & Wine, into a business. Right there and then the idea for Cape Food & Wine was born.
Chrissy - owner & business management
Chrissy is an American by birth and a South African by heart. She moved to South Africa from the USA in 2012, and quickly took over administrative and business management.
She believes that South Africa's food and wine are some of the best in the world, and feels lucky to have a "real job" working in this field.
Office team & logistics
Our super friendly food-and-wine-loving consultants Nicolene, Storm, Fazin and Cindy will be there to assist you every step of the way through your booking or ordering process. Do not hesitate to contact them if you have any questions.
Radheeka - tour guide
Radheeka was born in Kenya, but has been living in “the coolest city in the world”, Cape Town, since 2000. Like many of us in tourism, she has had many interesting twists in her career – studying journalism at the University of Cape Town, owning her own bakery, marketing wine, and working as a business development manager - before finding her calling as a South African tour guide.
Radheeka loves discovering new places in Cape Town and is always on the lookout for the next foodie experience.
