Devon Valley buckles up for Safari Lunch this summer
published on:

The sizzling Summer in Stellenbosch Valley 2012 which offers of a jam-packed programme of fun, feasts and festivities during the festive season culminates with a sumptuous Devon Valley Safari Lunch – an exquisite food and wine pairing meander through this post-card pretty valley

For one day only, four popular Winelands destinations have teamed up to take your senses on an enlightening culinary journey of awe-inspiring Devon Valley wines matched with sensational dishes ranging from peculiar to palate-pampering tastes. This foursome comprises The House of JC Le Roux; Devon Valley Hotel & SylvanVale Vineyards; Brenaissance Wine Estate, and Middelvlei.

Holidaymakers and visitors alike can buckle up for an exuberant taste adventure when the bus sets off for its first destination, The House of JC Le Roux, where a sparkling trio of treats awaits. The JC Le Roux Brut will be paired with a vegetarian California roll, followed by a flute of their Pinot Noir 2008 matched with oysters, sea salt & lime zest whilst the JC Le Roux La Vallée paired with a Bobotie truffle, will get you in the right spirit for the next stop.

A rosy affair allures at the Devon Valley Hotel where the SylvanVale Rosé will be paired with duck prosciutto on a potato rosti with glazed apple wedges and drizzled with a rosé and honey reduction. The crisp Ghost Tree Sauvignon Blanc is next on the menu and will be served with handmade tortellini with a prawn and monkfish filling, enriched with Grand Pandano slivers and a basil pesto cream sauce. The third cellar gem to be served up with a breathtaking view of the Devon Valley is the SylvanVale Pinotage Reserve which will tantalise with a falafel salad of seasonal delights, jalapeno hummus and peasant bread.

The third stop on this unique cellar-to-cellar ‘kuier’ is Brenaissance Wine Estate for an interactive Wine & Pizza Pairing Lunch at its new Café Blanc de Noir restaurant. Estate wines will be expertly paired and enjoyed with a selection of homemade, gourmet pizzas – all in the hearty company of owners Tom en Hayley Breytenbach.

The Devon Valley sojourn ends on a decadent high at Middelvlei Estate where brandy infused bananas on the coals and vanilla ice cream will cater for a cloud nine culmination when paired with the estate’s famous Free Run Pinotage and a few other crowd pleasers.

The Devon Valley Safari Lunch costs R250 per person and includes all the select wines and delectable food indulgences on the day. The adventure bus will collect all enthusiasts at Middelvlei at 10.30 and transport them to all the various stops.
