Awaken your senses and celebrate true love this Valentine’s at Nederburg in Paarl.
Nederburg’s beautiful manor house, a national monument, tells its own tale of a labour of love. Philippus Bernardus Wolvaart, who founded Nederburg in 1791, chose to lay the foundations close to a little stream. Sun-dried bricks, bounded with clay mortar, were used to build an elegant, H-shaped gabled country gentleman’s home in the vernacular Cape Dutch style. The front gable bears the date 1800, the year the house was completed. Sadly, his wife Margaretha, for whom he built this home, could not share in this gift of love as she had died two years previously, in 1798. (To view a video clip depicting the story, go to http://bit.ly/2k2de1b.)
Immerse yourself in this tale of devotion while enjoying lunch or dinner at The Red Table restaurant, situated in the historic manor house, on Valentine’s Day (14 February), for only R325 per person.
Choose from oak-smoked snoek tart, served with prawn and avocado salad; or a fresh salad of watermelon, pistachios, ricotta olive balls, peppermint dressing and caper crumbs, as a starter. The main course is a choice of line fish of the day, calamari arancini, wilted bok choi and roasted carrot pûrée; or grilled beef fillet with Bordelaise sauce, wild mushroom ravioli and wilted greens; or Gorgonzola and butternut Wellington, balsamic onions and zucchini fries. Enjoy dark chocolate torte, vanilla ice cream and white chocolate beignets; or refreshing summer berry panna cotta, sable biscuit and a late harvest smoothie, for dessert. Supplement this three-course feast with a cheese board for two at R120.
A large selection of Nederburg’s award-winning wines will be available to guests at an extra cost to enjoy with their meal.
Valentine’s Day lunch at The Red Table will be served from 12:00 until 16:00, whilst dinner commences at 19:00 and concludes at 22:00.
Local Paarl artist, Loren Erasmus, will delight guests with heart-warming music during the Valentine’s Day lunch and dinner seating.

If an al fresco lunch under the trees is more to your liking, book a delicious ‘Romance in the Garden’ picnic brimming with gourmet delights, lovingly prepared by The Red Table restaurant. Offered from Tuesday, 14 February, until Sunday, 19 February, between 12:00 and 16:00, picnics cost R500 per couple, and include a bottle of Nederburg bubbly. Pre-payment is essential.
