Ghetto Glam: Soweto Wine Festival

The Tall Sultry Beauty is a KoKOFIFI Woman & GalPal from our Boarding School Days. Can you say Fierce?

Modern Mohawk. Loving The Do. 
Nothing says Viva! L'Chaim! FoSho! better than a glass of something tall and bubbly. And nothing affirms life louder than the bravado and style of Soweto, where a three day wine festival just celebrated its 6th year.

The festival is the brainchild of Soweto's first winehouse owner, Mnikelo Mangciphu and Marylin Cooper.

Beyond just wine, the festival also showcased good Sowetan grub.

Speaking of cool local food, you must pick up a copy of this month's AFAR Travel Magazine for an education on the culinary craze that's thankgoodness! swallowing Cape Town whole and threatening to make something  truly South African out of gasp! cape-grown cuisine that will leave any gourmand weeping in gratitude and African pride. 

There were roaring Springboks fans--don't you know we're taking the Rugby World Cup this year? And of course, Sowetan Fashionistas stepping out in style. Fine wine and finer wear--Yes, i'll drink to that!
