Posted by Wilandre Johnson on 16 February 2021 10:40 AM CAT
Primely positioned just outside Paarl, the captivating views of the Drakenstein mountains, rolling vineyards and stunning gardens create a perfect backdrop for country-style dining, award-winning wine experiences and fun for the whole family at this historic estate.
The Manor restaurant celebrates Nederburg’s rich heritage (that dates back to 1791) through innovative food-and-wine experiences, wine tastings, breakfast, lunch and garden picnics in the beautifully reimagined estate manor house.
At Nederburg you can play winemaker for a day, let your five senses be tantalised by a blind-folded wine tasting experience and enjoy the perfect picnic on their lawns with the manor house (which is a national monument) as your backdrop.
The Five Senses Wine & Food Experience is devised to strip away some senses and heighten others to show just how you perceive wine, food and flavours using different senses. Taste your way through a three-course canapé-style food and wine pairing, first blind-folded, and then sighted. To add an extra dimension to the experience, the second and third courses are presented not only unseen, but also with the addition of evocative sounds, creating a truly emotive and personal experience where your imagination is allowed free reign.
Play winemaker for a day as Nederburg guides you through the wine blending process. Learn the characteristics of the various varietals and discover why some harmonise better than others. Blend and bottle your own signature wine to take home and impress your friends and family. Guests will receive a personalised bottle of their favourite blend sent to them once bottled and ready for delivery.
Take advantage of warm summer days with the Perfect Picnic under the shade of Nederburg’s towering oaks. Picnic baskets offers a fabulous feast, a bottle of wine of your choice and many more delicious delights for friends and family to enjoy.
