Nestled into the side of the mountain, Franschhoek’s iconic Haute Cabrière Restaurant is renowned for its unique location. Soaring arches frame the picture perfect view over the cathedral-like Pinot Noir Barrel Maturation Cellar below (where a superlative wine tasting experience beckons). On sunny days, guests can enjoy the beautiful vistas over the magnificent Franschhoek Valley from the terrace whilst on cool days a roaring fire beckons. Chef Ryan Shell’s menu revolves around seasonal availability of produce, which is mostly sourced locally or even grown organically on the estate. A selection of full and half portions, as well as a variety of smaller bites from the Delicious Little Things menu (served in the afternoons) encourage guests to relax and sample a variety of enticing pairings. A choice of tasting menus – including a comprehensive vegetarian menu – offers a wonderful journey through Haute Cabrière’s wine and food offering. The flavours and textures on the plate are specifically designed to complement Haute Cabrière’s wines and Pierre Jourdan cap classiques – all of them served by the glass or bottle. Bringing all of these elements together, Haute Cabrière offers the complete marriage of food and wine.
