Autumn Wine Dinner at Lievland Café in Stellenbosch

Autumn Wine Dinner at Lievland Café in Stellenbosch

A convivial evening of great wine and food.

With its Cape Dutch farmhouse, green lawns running down to a dam and vine-clad hills behind, Lievland is a charming addition to the Stellenbosch scene. Since Lievland Café opened last year it’s become a go-to for family occasions, casual breakfasts and leisurely lunches. In April the team are getting together with Lievland’s wine-making neighbours for a one-off wine dinner that promises a wonderful in-depth exploration in the glass of this picturesque corner of the Stellenbosch Winelands.

Lievland Dinner Wine

Lievland and Neighbours Wine Dinner

The aim of the evening is to get to know the wines of Lievland, Mitre’s Edge, Nattevalleij, Kanonkop and Le Bonheur alongside generous helpings of good food and easy conviviality. You’ll kick off with tastings of several aperitif wines and canapés, as the sun sets and turns the vines and landscape to gold. Then settle in at the long tables for a 3-course menu of hearty supper dishes paired with more wines. Chefs Garth Bedford and Gareth Goliath have devised a tempting menu that’s strong on local ingredients and deep autumn flavours:

  • slow fermented sourdough bread and creamy Lowerland polenta with mushroom fricassée and rocket
  • slow-cooked springbok shank with potato fondant
  • Dalewood Huguenot cheese with pears poached in spiced wine
  • coffee and dark chocolate truffles
