Durbanville Hills’ New Winter Pairing Menu

Abantu bathanda ukuba romantic apha ewinter, so folks this is perfect for ukukhipha umuntu wakho…….

The Durbanville Hills Restaurant has transformed its popular tasting menu to include some favourites that match the shorter days, crisp bite in the air and a longing for wholesome inner warmth. Situated a mere 20 minutes from Cape Town’s city centre, the restaurant overlooks a splendour of rolling hills, vineyards and the unmatched vista of Table Mountain, Table Bay and Robben Island.


The five- course meal, each paired with the range of Durbanville Hills, Rhinofields and single-vineyard wines, is masterminded by Chef Louisa Greeff, who cherishes the incredible depth of flavour obtained by sourcing not only the finest meat, fish and cheese but supporting artisan and local producers too.


Starting with an amuse bouche, the prawn ceviche and smoked duck breast or a butternut and cumin soufflé are followed by a choice of the grilled venison loin skewer or grilled fish of the day, ending with spiced orange crème caramel. Taste your way through the carefully selected wines ranging from the single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc to the lightly wooded Chardonnay, cool-climate Pinotage and the perfectly balanced noble late harvest, all selected to best complement the flavours of each course.


The pairing costs R350 per person, and is available at lunch time from Tuesday to Sundays and as dinner on Thursday to Saturdays. Booking is advised.
