    @ Fairview Wine and Cheese
    There is a Extraño (stranger in Spanish) in the Cape’s vineyards, named Tempranillo. Originally from Spain, Tempranillo now grows in local soils and produces grapes of exceptional quality. We’ve carefully integrated fellow Spaniards Grenache and Carignan – who add spice, fruit and freshness – to help temper this slightly rustic grape variety’s temperamental streak.

    Since its release, this wine has been causing waves throughout our Tasting Room, becoming a firm best-seller thanks to its consistent taste, beautiful label and value-for-money. In fact, Extraño was one of our most awarded wines for 2017, receiving a 4.5 star Platter rating, a 2017 National Wine Challenge Top 100 award, and a 90 point score at the Winemag Signature Red Blend Report Awards 2017 and a Double Gold - NWC/Top 100 South African Wine Awards 2018!

    Chef SJ Nel and the Goatshed team crafted a carefully curated menu that will please all palates, while harking back to Catalan-inspired flavours.

    • MENU •

    ~ TAPAS ~
    A selection of breads, spicy dips & Salami

    Please meet us at the Farm Shop
     
    For thousands of years, the indigenous peoples of southern Africa survived in the veld. Throughout the seasons, they were skilled in recognising and using the various parts of wild plants – bulbs, shoots, flowers and fruit – as food. Botanist Ernst van Jaarsveld shares his wealth of experience of South Africa’s indigenous plants while we walk through the garden, picking and tasting food plants in season. Learn how to recognise edible veld plants as well as how to propagate and plant them. Get ready to tuck your hands in the soil and plant your own edible plants to take home.
    Our lunch menu is inspired by the indigenous food plants we learn about and will be served at the Bakery – included in the price.

    @ The Bistro & Restaurant at Boschenmeer Golf Estate
    After a successful first Clubhouse Comedy Night we are proud to bring you the next lineup! Join us on Friday the 5th of July for a fab lineup NOT to be missed!

    If laughter is the best medicine, then she may as well be a doctor. Mel Jones, your host for the evening, will inject a healthy dose of hilarity into the temperament of any audience. Funny is her middle name! (Not really. That would be weird.)

    Reagen Allen’s style of comedy can be described in three words: Intelligent, Witty and Hilarious! According to him, he was voted as the second funniest person; in his house. However, he was crowned at the winner of the 2018 Cape Town Comedy Club Savanna #YourFunnyCider Competition.

    Kurt Langeveld's urban style of wit, coupled with sharp and to the point cultural observations about all aspects of life as an adult in today’s crazy world, will have you in stitches.

    Conrad Koch is South Africa’s top comedy ventriloquist, and possibly the only one, and is a double International Emmy nominated comedian. His most famous puppet, Chester Missing has interviewed most of South Africa’s political elite and has held a number of regular radio and TV slots, and even wrote an award-winning book.

    Snacks will be available and bar specials will be running until late.

    Age Restriction: PG 16

    Right of admission is reserved.

    Please note that seating is on a first come first serve basis.
