And all that jazz.
Sophisticated interiors, warm service and delicious food-and-wine offerings make Avant-Garde at Hazendal Wine Estate the ideal venue for an evening of soulful jazz, during which a clutch of internationally acclaimed musicians takes the audience on a journey of old favourites and new rhythms.
The evening begins in the estate’s elegant Wine Tasting Lounge, where guests have the option of enjoying a wine-tasting. (And, If you purchase a case of wine, you’ll receive a 10% discount.)
A symphony of tastes
Executive chef Michélle Theron has created an intriguing three-course dinner that combines Russian and South African flavours. The breadboard kicks things off: Babushka bread, served with whipped citrus-infused butter; followed by a roasted butternut salad starter. Mains is a choice between slow-braised beef, lemon roast chicken thighs, or Russain pelmeni (pasta pockets), with Russian Napoleon (layers of vanilla pastry cream, crisp pastry and sugar glaze) ending things on a sweet note. All this to the soothing sounds of smooth jazz. Non-meat-eaters have the option of a vegetarian menu.
