With a three hundred year old history, Franschhoek valley boasts the most private cellars and the country’s oldest wine route but also some of South Africa’s top restaurants and award-winning wine producers. This gourmet experience is sure to delight the senses.
Your foodie adventure begins at the famous gardens of Babylonstoren – a stunning winery and farm with magnificent gardens and beautifully preserved Cape Dutch architecture. Go for a stroll through the well maintained gardens and learn about the fruit, herbs, nuts, spices, and vegetables that are grown on the estate. Every one of the 300 varieties of plants in the garden is edible or has medicinal value. Additionally, all produce is grown as organically as possible and in a biologically sustainable manner. The fruit and vegetables from the garden are harvested all year round for use in two farm-to-fork restaurants.
After working up an appetite, head over to Moreson wine estate, a tranquil garden paradise located on the outskirts of Franschhoek. Sit on the shaded patio while you indulge in locally sourced and 3 handcrafted charcuteries paired with award-winning Moreson wines. Each pairing strives to showcase characteristics of both the charcuterie and wine and how they can enhance each other.
Your third stop takes you to a heritage estate in Franschhoek where you will learn about the art and science of food and wine pairing as you enjoy 4 canapés perfectly paired with local wines. Discover how flavours and texture in food and wine interact with each other to create a totally new tasting experience. Your specialist guide will explain how components like sugar, acid, alcohol and tannins of the wine can be accentuated or minimized when paired with certain foods.
End the day at a fantastic Franschhoek estate where you will discover the essence of the South African foodie lifestyle. Take a seat and enjoy a premium food and wine pairing with Methode Cap Classique (MCC – wine made in the Champagne method) and delicious canapes from the restaurant kitchen.
