Paralympian Taking Durbanville Hills Winery To Court


Cape Town – A blind Paralympic athlete has taken well-known winery Durbanville Hills to the Equality Court after they refused him and his guide dog entry to their restaurant.

Swimmer Hendri Herbst visited the restaurant in 2014 after showing his girlfriend’s parents and grandmother around the city. When they arrived, the hostess allegedly told Herbst the restaurant has a policy against dogs and he and his party would have to sit outside.
