wine events and wine tastings
tastes of 2017 wine-paired dinners
The Tastes of 2017 dinners celebrate wines from estates along the route Lady Anne Barnard took on her exploration of the Western Cape, and the bounty of fresh ingredients available to our chefs. Each of these highly anticipated dinners focuses on a particular wine estate, a wine district or group of wine growers. Due to high demand, it is recommended that bookings be made early.

The first dinner in the series is on 8 April. We celebrate four exquisite wines from two estates: Hamilton Russell Vineyards Chardonnay 2016 and Pinot Noir 2016, and Domaine Des Dieux Josephine Pinot Noir 2013 and Chardonnay 2012. Dishes on the five-course menu include yellowtail ravioli with pan-fried prawn-and-mushroom velouté, and lamb rump set on warm homemade hummus with pickled red cabbage, roasted cauliflower, semi-dried tomatoes and lamb jus.

The Hotel’s five dedicated Wine Partners – Meerlust, Klein Constantia, Simonsig, Warwick and Waterford – are some of the Cape’s most celebrated estates. We offer deluxe private excursions to four of them that include personal meeting with their winemakers, tours of these estates and other unique wine experiences.
The Hotel has a tradition of exceptional wine, with selections drawn from some of the Cape’s many globally-acclaimed and fêted wine estates, and is a delight for both connoisseur and casual quaffer.
