Goatshed Caldera Greek Evening

24 August

19:00–22:00

Off the coast of the Greek isle of Santorini lies a sea-drowned caldera, a vast crater left behind by one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history. Once a cradle of heat and magma, today that energy is still channeled into the Mediterranean dishes cooked in cauldron-style pots by locals. To celebrate the warmth and richness of this culture, we’ve crafted our Caldera wine to masterfully match with any meal… and the Goatshed Caldera Evening is just the fit for this experience!

Our sixth Goatshed dinner is coming up on the 24th August 2018: The Caldera Greek Evening!

Caldera was so named after Charles Back’s travels to Santorini in Greece. During his stay, he enjoyed the view of the mostly submerged caldera, located in the southern Aegean Sea, 120 kilometers north of Crete. Upon his return from Greece, he was inspired to create a Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre blend that would complement Mediterranean style food, such as the Greek cuisine he has experienced. And so Caldera was born – the oldest member of our Regional Revival Range, and one of our best!

This year, we’ve decided to introduce a strong relationship between the food and wine pairings, by complementing the Goatshed dinners to our most food-focused wine range, titled the Regional Revival Range.

The Regional Revival Range consists of the following 6 wines:

  1. Fairview Brut MCC
  2. Fairview Drie Papen Fontein
  3. Fairview Nurok
  4. Fairview Homtini
  5. Fairview Extrano
  6. Fairview Caldera

Here is a breakdown of the menu you can expect to enjoy on the evening:

Mezze

Greek style breads, olives and hummus

Homemade Dolmades

Spinach & feta tartlets

Haloumi & sundried tomato salsa

Starter

Prawn Saganaki & zucchini fritter

Main Course

Baked lamb meatballs with crushed potatoes, baby marrow, aubergine puree and rosemary jus

Dessert

Greek Style Fresh Cheese & Yoghurt tart, apricot compote

R325 per person
