Wine Tasting & Cuisine

Since the introduction of wine making in the mid 17 th century by Jan van Riebeeck, the fine wines of South Africa have gained both international recognition and prestigious awards. Being acknowledged as producing some of the world's best wines, our skillfully talented wine makers are scattered mostly within the Western Cape.
 
Big, full and velvety reds or clean clear and brilliant whites full of character, we have it all; from chardonnay, franc and blanc to shiraz and pinotage. Among the many wine farms in the Cape, the historic Constantia Valley is the site of the country's first. The rich historical atmosphere elegantly radiates from the colonial Dutch architecture and blends seamlessly against the backdrop of lush green farmlands and blue mountains. These are the scenes that await you at the popular Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington and Paarl wine estates.

Not only do we have the best wines, we have some of the best menus too. Class, elegance and sophistication exude from our top boutique restaurants. Le Quartier Francais, nestled in the Franschhoek Valley, has been listed as one of the top 50 restaurants in the world and has been awarded the platinum award for wine.

In Mozambique the cuisine is African style infused with Portuguese, and known for the succulent seafood dishes which could include crayfish, prawns and lobster. Traditional cooking is big in southern Africa and so is the sweet spice spells of Malay influenced dishes.
 
The Cape Malay Restaurant and Jonkershuis in Constantia specializes in Malay cuisine. If you desire a more African flavour, then try Mama Africa or Marco's Place in Cape Town. Traditional meals range from potjiekos which is an Afrikaner stew made in a cast-iron pot and simmers over coals.
 
There is no doubt that both our wine and food deliciously succulent and embodies the unique taste of Africa.
