Awaken your senses and celebrate true love at Nederburg in Paarl. Nederburg’s beautiful manor house, a national monument, tells its own tale of a labour of love. Philippus Bernardus Wolvaart, who founded Nederburg in 1791, chose to lay the foundations close to a little stream. The front gable bears the date 1800, the year the house was completed. Immerse yourself in this tale of devotion while enjoying lunch or dinner at The Red Table restaurant, situated in the historic manor house, on Valentine’s Day (14 February), for only R325 per person.
Choose from oak-smoked snoek tart with prawn and avocado salad; or a fresh salad of watermelon, pistachios, ricotta olive balls, peppermint dressing and caper crumbs, as a starter. The main course is a choice of line fish of the day, calamari arancini, wilted bok choi and roasted carrot pûrée; or grilled beef fillet with Bordelaise sauce, wild mushroom ravioli and wilted greens; or Gorgonzola and butternut Wellington, balsamic onions and zucchini fries. Dark chocolate torte, vanilla ice cream and white chocolate beignets; or refreshing summer berry panna cotta, sable biscuit and a late harvest smoothie, for dessert. Add a cheese board for two at R120. Nederburg’s award-winning wines will be at an extra cost.
Valentine’s Day lunch at The Red Table will be served from 12:00 until 16:00, dinner from 19:00 to 22:00. Please be advised that The Red Table will be closed on Monday, 13 February.
Local Paarl artist, Loren Erasmus, will delight guests with heart-warming music during the Valentine’s Day lunch and dinner seating. To secure a booking, please contact The Red Table on 021 877 5155 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
That’s not all! The Nederburg Visitors’ Centre will offer guests a special sweet wine pairing, at R60 per head, for the entire Valentine’s week (from Monday, 13 February until Sunday, 19 February). It includes Nederburg’s award-winning The Winemasters Noble Late Harvest 2015, with nougat; The Winemasters Special Late Harvest 2016, with fudge; and Heritage Heroes The Beautiful Lady Gewürztraminer 2016, with Turkish delight. Pre-booking is advised. Do so by going to http://nederburg.co.za/our-home/, and clicking on “book now”.
If an al fresco lunch under the trees is more to your liking, book a delicious ‘Romance in the Garden’ picnic brimming with gourmet delights, lovingly prepared by The Red Table restaurant. Offered from Tuesday, 14 February, until Sunday, 19 February, between 12:00 and 16:00, picnics cost R500 per couple, and include a bottle of Nederburg bubbly. Pre-payment is essential.
