Where the mountain meets the sea near the sleepy village of Noordhoek lies Cape Point Vineyards, a panoramic wine estate thanks to its 360-degree vistas of sea, mountains, vineyards and fynbos – particularly gorgeous at sunset when the sun dips into the Atlantic Ocean.
This March, the estate welcomes wine lovers to celebrate the harvest, followed by a traditional long-table feast in the courtyard. Winemaker Riandri Visser, known as “The Siren of Sauvignon” will be on hand to show you how it’s done, before you head off for a three-course braai.
Family-style seafood braai
Paying homage to the cool sea breeze that contributes to the unique terroir of the estate, Cape Point Vineyards is pulling out all the stops with a traditional South African fish braai, with three courses of family-style sharing platters.
- Starter platter Fresh tomato, burrata cheese and basil; spinach and feta spanakopita; roasted red peppers with bagna càuda (Italian dipping sauce with garlic and anchovies); stuffed baby marrows; pan-fried calamari tubes with an olive tomato and onion filling; West Coast mussels with lemon garlic and thyme sauce.
- Mains platter Whole-braaied Abalobi Cape bream; woodfire baked prawns; roasted baby carrots with dukkah spice; roasted aubergines with a verjuice caramel; parsley and butter baby potatoes; freshly picked rocket and lemon sauce.
- Dessert platter Baked apple tart; CPV Noble Late Harvest ice cream; apple beignet; poached grapes and warm vanilla-bean custard.
Good to know The price per person includes the harvest feast and gratuity.
No-one will be leaving this feast hungry!
