Revel in the magic and marvels of the Bottelary Hills wine region, when Mooiplaas Estate & Private Nature Reserve sets an enchanting Langtafel for the area’s seasonal Pop Up Winemakers Lunch on Sunday, August 31.
The historic manor house on the estate beckons enthused wine and food lovers to join a close-knit winemaking community for a home-cooked four course feast prepared by passionate hosts, Dirk and Kirsten Roos.
This exclusive gathering in an atmospheric 1833 Cape Dutch Herenhuis will start with a tasting of the latest vintages stemming from this esteemed sub-route of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc on the day.
Joining the Roos family at the long table will be fellow Bottelary Hills estates – Beyerskloof, Goede Hoop, Hartenberg and Kaapzicht – for guests to immerse themselves in their enlightening conversation and terroir-driven wines.
If the sound of a languid lunch in a national monument framed by award-winning vineyards is your idea of gourmet heaven, then you must make a beeline for the Bottelary Hills this weekend.
