We were lucky enough to visit the Cape in March this year and our first visit took us to Annandale Wines.
This farm dates back to around 1688 and is the oldest farm in the Helderberg Valley. You can sense the history from the moment you drive up to the barrel cellar.
The farm is far from the usual manicured lawns, pristine white buildings and slick signage one normally associates with visits to wine farms.
On a wild, wet and windy night all was busy in our pop up kitchen. The table was laid and our guests gathered for our very first
Cape Kitchen Supper!
Well what a success, you need only look at the smiling faces of the lovely people who graced the table. The delightful Lynda Mellor contributed greatly to the success by being her warm, welcoming and knowledgeable self. In her very capable hands we were kept interested and charmed by her knowledge of the wines for the evening, leaving us to take care of the food.
On arrival we served Moreson Solitaire Sparkling alongside biltong pate. This gave everyone a chance to introduce themselves and get settled. We served spicy butternut soup which was complemented by Kanu KCB Chenin. There was just the right amount of oakiness in this to pair beautifully with the soup.
Cape Wine and Food are now proud stockists of Klein Constantia wines - as advertised in the Oct '13 Decanter magazine!
We have a range of prices and styles - something to suit everyone.
