The breathtaking Simonsberg Mountain and surrounding vineyard is a fabulous backdrop to enjoy a feast prepared by Chef Mynhardt Joubert. Enjoy Kudu burgers with a Plaisir de Merle red wine and dark chocolate sauce, Franschhoek smoked trout sandwiches and a delectable twist on a traditional dessert, milk tart ice cream with koeksister crumble.
The light jazzy notes of Marelize Zeeman-Theron and Myrtle Visser will add to the festive mood as you explore the range of complex, beautiful balanced and multi-layered wines. The estate’s rich history dates back to 1693 with lush lawns and manicured gardens creating a scenic, celebratory setting. A Bedouin tent will provide shelter should the weather turn and you can take advantage of a 10% discount on all wines purchased on the day.
Cellar master, Niel Bester, will host an intimate private wine tasting on the Sunday (17 September) at 12.00. Explore the estate’s Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and the recently launched Charles Marais blend. Cost is R120 per person and includes Chef Mynhardt Joubert’s Kudu burger served directly after the tasting. Only 20 seats available and booking essential.
