Gourmet Wine Dinner with Buitenverwachting at The Cellars-Hohenort

The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel & Spa has teamed up with neighbouring wine estates in the Constantia Valley to present a series of three gourmet wine dinner events over the coming months.

It will kick off on 28 June 2024 with Buitenverwachting Wines, followed by Beau Constantia on 27 July  2024, and Groot Constantia concluding the series on 30 August 2024.

For the inaugural event on the 28th of June, Head Chef Daniel Blignaut has created a degustation menu with a wine pairing that will be presented by the owner of Buitenverwachting, Laars Maack, in the elegant Greenhouse venue.

  • The menu is meticulously designed to showcase the wines, but also the culinary style that has put The Cellars-Hohenort on the map as a gourmet destination of note.

What’s on the Menu?

The extravagant, multi-course feast will start with canapés of oysters; followed by compressed melon pavlova served with the welcome drink of Buitenverwachting’s Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay blend (2023). The line fish course will be paired with the 2023 Chardonnay; followed by Outeniqua springbok enjoyed with the limited release 2020 MPV red blend. The hearty main course of Moroccan spiced lamb shoulder will meet its perfect match in the Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc – Buitenverwachting Christine 2016; with a classic dessert of apple tarte tatin enjoyed with a glass of Noble Late Harvest 2021 to end festivities on a sweet note.

Guests may book for the dinner only (R745 per person including the wine pairing) or spoil themselves with an overnight stay after the event. The all-inclusive rate of R2745 per person sharing includes the wine pairing dinner, luxury accommodation and complimentary in-room treats such as the stocked mini-bar and a bottle of wine. It also includes full breakfast the next morning served in the newly decorated Conservatory Restaurant, complete with a cold buffet and a choice of hot dishes to order, as well as Bloody Marys, Mimosas, freshly squeezed juices, and fragrant teas and coffees.
