If you’re in Cape Town then you will no doubt want to mark off Saturday 25 March on your calendar because Fairview Wine and Cheese will be hosting its first-ever Harvest Table Luncheon that weekend and it’s set to be a must-attend occasion. The wonderful paddock-to-plate experience is all about bringing the farm’s bountiful produce and fruits of the harvest directly to the table for guests to experience and enjoy in a relaxed al fresco setting. Here’s everything you need to know about Fairview Harvest Table Lunch.
To experience this unique event, guests will be seated at a long table set under a vine canopy where they can mingle with those around them over trendy sharing platters prepared and conceptualised by the Goatshed restaurant head chef, SJ Nel. The menu will feature some of Fairview’s finest artisanal produce, including generous servings of its renowned cheeses, breads, olives, charcuterie and homemade preserves. Plus, in the spirit of the bounty of the harvest, guests will be able to help themselves to a bottomless supply of Fairview’s new young wines, which they can tap straight from the vat in true farm style.
“This year we celebrate the 20th harvest of our Viognier variety for which we have the mother block in South Africa. We ask those who have shared in Fairview’s journey and successes to join us at our new Harvest Table Lunches,” says Charles Back, owner of Fairview Wine and Cheese.
Tickets for the lunch cost R325 per person and are available online via Quicket. Tickets will include the lunch and Fairview’s newest harvest wine.
