Eating good food while drinking good wine, all done in good company is one of life’s greatest pleasures
Indulge your inner gastronome this winter and snap up a seat (or two) at the exclusive Wine & Food Experience presented by La Petite Ferme, mountainside estate in Franschhoek, the culinary capital of South Africa.
La Petite Ferme offers luxurious accommodation, unparalleled vistas, produces world-class hand-crafted wines from its own small and intimate boutique style cellar, managed by winemaker Wikus Pretorius, and is home to an award-winning restaurant which serves country cuisine with a fresh contemporary touch. Come to La Petite Ferme’s Chef’s Table and Themed Food and Wine Pairing evenings and savour sublime dishes with local and international wines throughout the year and be prepared to be dazzled!
The Chef’s Table from May to September, the Themed Evenings from April to September on the last Friday of each month and two ‘Wine-Makers’ Tasting Dinners on the last Thursday of May and June.
Pretorius will begin each evening with a showcase tasting of four wines – one from La Petite Ferme, two from other local Cape winelands terroirs and one international. All the wines on the evening will be the same cultivar, providing a rare opportunity to compare different expressions and the effect of terroirs and techniques. The tastings will be followed by a three -course food-and-wine spectacular, with dishes inspired by Pretorius’ most sumptuous taste experiences which he gleaned from his world travels.
“These exquisite dishes are not on our restaurant’s à la carte lunch menu and will be paired with wines from La Petite Ferme’s renowned portfolio. Our wine-paired dinners will provide enthusiasts of our beloved restaurant the chance to return to their favourite, month after month…each time to experience a different sensory indulgence,” he explains.
