“A feast of food and wine with live entertainment by Zest Music: classic and modern hits”

Bring in the New Year in the enchanting atmosphere of the Nederburg wine farm in Paarl, as a fabulous feast unfolds under a bright African summer sky.

With its historic meets modern day vibe…and sparkling wine aplenty, The Red Table restaurant, situated in Nederburg’s elegant manor house, will be serving up a celebratory candlelight array of delicious food  matched with award-winning wines from across the winery’s multi-tiered range.

Dreamy classical music, interspersed with contemporary hits by the popular Zest musical group featuring Louisa Theart on flute, Albert Combrink on piano, Matthijs van Dijk on violin and Ariella Caira on cello, will further set the scene for bidding 2018 goodbye and setting sail for a new year.

Satisfy your senses with fresh and flavourful food options in this magical setting. The indulgent line-up features Nederburg Cuvée Brut poached fish terrine, wrapped in rice paper and served with crispy whitebait and capers dressing as a palate opener; Cantaloupe soup with lavash and minted coconut cream, with Nederburg The Winemasters Riesling 2018; beetroot cured salmon with black sesame blini and dill crème fraiche, served with Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Young Airhawk Sauvignon Blanc 2017; followed by pomegranate sorbet as palate cleanser.

As midnight creeps closer, get ready for a rich trio of lamb – slow braised lamb Tortellini, lamb kofta with coriander yoghurt and profiterole, and lamb cutlets with potato fondant and salsa verde – offered with the full-bodied Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Brew Master Bordeaux-style blend 2016.  Next up is double baked gruyere and onion soufflé, with Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Anchorman Chenin Blanc 2017.

Saffron ice cream with Turkish delight bits and sugar cone, served with Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Beautiful Lady Gewürztraminer 2018, concludes a delightful evening.
