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.
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.
Meet the team
After studying tourism in Stellenbosch, Hendrik followed his passion and started Earthstompers Adventures in 2006 and has been in the tourism industry ever since. Hendrik also covers experience consulting & logistics.
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, enjoying great food & wine, into a business: Cape Food & Wine Tours.
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.
