A lunch at Vondeling with Bertus Basson

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.
