Winter special 2018

Starts Wednesday 18th April in the evening


Our first wine farm partner is MAN Family Wines

It all started with a simple plan … Jose Conde, Tyrrel Myburgh and Phillip Myburgh (who had been making wine together for some time) wanted to make a wine that they would love to buy. Huh ??? Doesn’t all the wine they make fall into that category? It does but this wine would need to offer great value and have awesome packaging. So off they went and produced 300 cases in a tractor shed. To keep the peace with their families, they took the initials from their wives first names and Marie, Anette, Nicky and (MAN) family wines was born.

They are now making 175 000 cases a year and exporting to 25 countries; what hasn’t changed is their original mantra. These wines pack a serious punch and are very reasonable priced!

When Cheffy and I tasted them a couple of weeks ago, it was a no brainer that these guys would be the first farm we would feature on our famous winter special

Check out this weeks menu …

we are totally hooked on our chef’s tables…


This little gem is the result of one of those sessions with a madly passionate wine maker and me (the food maker) getting together and tasting their creation so that i can in turn try and pair them with suitable “delices”…

This has been such a fun exercise, and Pete and I have loved hosting those chef’s table for more than year now…

They are here to stay, and so every 6 weeks or so we gather with eating and drinking friends to celebrate the glorious bounty of our gentle mother nature… Join us!

it’s that time again, crazy winter specials!
