About Allesverloren Wines
With a long standing heritage that dates back to 1704, Allesverloren Wines assure depth, character and ageing potential. From the range of full bodies reds made in the traditional Old-world style, consisting of a unique combination of an exuberant and fortified wines, guaranteed to impress the discerning wine lover.
The first of the Malan dynasty, Daniël Francois Malan arrived at the estate in 1872. When he bought the land it was predominantly being used to cultivate wheat, but after seeing the vineyards he decided to try his hand at winemaking. His wine was soon in demand and Daniël began to produce a sweet fortified wine, which developed into the estate’s flagship port, our Fine Old Vintage.
Danie Malan is the fifth generation Malan on the Swartland estate. He is Allesverloren’s owner and cellar master and continuously taking his family’s legacy to new heights.
The Allesverloren vineyards creep up the imposing Kasteelberg in the scenic Riebeek Valley of the Swartland. Their vineyards range from 170m – 350m above sea level and benefit from variance in rainfall of 200mm.
These various meso-climates provide the ideal conditions for creating big, robust red wines.

About Cowboys and Cooks
This new steak restaurant and bar in Sunset Beach, is owned by Michael Townsend and operated by Stuart Bailey of the C & C Group. One of his three new restaurants, with Sevruga in the Waterfront, and a new boutique restaurant being developed in Sea Point, which will open later this year. Michael founded the Harbour House Group over twenty years ago, creating strong restaurant brands such as La Parada, and Tiger’s Milk.
In Cowboys & Cooks they have created a modern edgy sexy steakhouse, which caters for families with children too. The restaurant seats 130 patrons, and has done extremely well in building a client base amongst Sunset Beach and Table View residents, many even driving from the centre of town to taste the excellent steaks.
Tables are covered in starched white table cloths, reflecting the seriousness of the dining experience offered, with white napkins, and Baguette stainless steel cutlery. Each table has luxury Peugeot wooden salt and pepper grinders.
The restaurant has a library look in some sections, with shelves of books, brown leather banquettes, many framed photographs on the walls, and a large original oil painting by Cael Nel.
One section houses a large bar, with bar chairs. The kitchen is open-plan, and its cooking equipment reflects the trend to charcoal grill cooking, the grill especially made up for the restaurant.
