Enjoy hearty winter hospitality at Cabernet & Carne

by Tia

Vergelegen Wine Estate in Somerset West is delighted to announce the launch of its newest dining experience, Cabernet & Carne. Located in a restored, rustic cottage, this destination pop-up promises to delight your senses and lift your spirits on chilly winter days.

Set against a breathtaking mountain backdrop, on the boundary of an extensive arboretum, the restaurant offers a thoughtfully crafted set menu that celebrates the best of seasonal and heritage cuisine. Priced at R495 per person, the menu features delicious, traditional South African dishes.

  1. Homestyle beginning: Ouma’s traditional bean soup with farm bread and Cabernet butter, alternatively a vegetarian bean soup with a mignonette sauce.
  2. Main chapter: Entrecôte steak, or baby spatchcock chicken, or aubergine schnitzel, served with unlimited fries and a green salad.
  3. Delightful end: Old-fashioned souskluitjies – cinnamon dumplings – topped with a crème brûlée custard.
  4. Lekker last sip: Moerkoffie with a splash of condensed milk.

A selection of Vergelegen red and white wines, liqueurs and beverages is available (not included in the set menu price).

“We’re excited to welcome guests to this magical place,” says Vergelegen managing director Wayne Coetzer. “Cabernet & Carne offers far more than a meal; it’s an experience that combines the country charm of our estate with the culinary excellence that Vergelegen is renowned for.

“Whether you’re a foodie, wine enthusiast, or simply searching for an enjoyable winter outing, this pop-up restaurant is the perfect destination.”

Opening times: Lunch Wednesday-Sunday, 12h00-17h00 (kitchen closes 15h30). Closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Find out more, including menu, at Cabernet & Carne.
