Cuvée is offering great deals, and of course their signature warm farm hospitality every day of the week. Their farmhouse breakfast goes wonderfully with a glass of Kaapse Vonkel Rosé, for only R100. Dig into a burger on Wednesday evening and they’ll throw in a glass of Pinotage for free. Thursday evenings are all about their Butcher’s Cut of the Day, which you can enjoy with a glass of Labyrinth Cabernet Sauvignon for R160, or if oysters are your thing, you can order a plate for R120 and they’ll add a complimentary glass of bubbly (from Fridays to Sundays).

For something special, they are serving a 2 course food and wine pairing dinner for R395 and a 3 course food and wine pairing dinner for R495.
