Last Sunday I enjoyed a stunning lunch at Vondeling Wine Estate in Voor Paardeberg prepared by the incredible Bertus Basson. It was my first time on the farm which is located a little off the beaten track in a very beautiful part of the Western Cape Winelands. The food was delicicous, rustic and plentiful with unique Bertus Basson touches and South African flavours. Lunch was enjoyed with a variety of fabulous Vondeling wines and the whole day was a Sunday feast and treat of note.
Thank goodness this splendid collaboration was not a once off, and the dates for the forthcoming events are:
- Sunday 20 September
- Sunday 8 November
- Sunday 20 December
The menus will change with the seasons and I cant recommend this highly enough.
