Are you planning a holiday to the culinary capital of South Africa Franschhoek between May and August? If you are, you must visit the Wine & Food Experience presented by La Petite Ferme mountainside estate.
Four dinners are scheduled as part of the Wine & Food Experience that takes place on the first Thursday of every month from May to August.
Each is distinctly different from the others and will be hosted by the La Petite Ferme’s talented winemaker Wikus Pretorius, who draws on his experience of local and international wines. Prior to joining La Petite Ferme in 2015, Pretorius worked for some of SA’s top wineries as well as estates in the world’s premier wine regions of France, California and Australia.
During the course of each evening, Pretorius will begin 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 tasting 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 four wine-paired dinners provide enthusiasts of our beloved restaurant the chance to return to their favourite, month after month...each time to experience a different sensory indulgence,” said Pretorius.
The tasting dinners get underway at 18:30. For further information, e-mail to [email protected] or contact Ruan Olivier at 021 876 3016.
