KLEIN ROOSBOOM BOUTIQUE WINERY & HARVEST CULTURE EATERIE
28 October 2021
What a fabulous day out – starting our morning off at Klein Roosboom at just after 10h00 where 12 of us enjoyed a ‘new’ experience in their tasting caves.
“Hey, wine tasting SO early – has the Boeing flown over ?” – We had pre-booked VERSAILLES and THE KITCHEN – two unique wine tasting caves!
First class wine tasting in a unique environment! Ten of the group enjoyed coffee in the JEAN restaurant and enjoyed browsing their Deli as well.
At 11h30 we headed off to the Tyger Waterfront where Dale Schreuder and his staff operate the HARVEST CULTURE EATERIE restaurant. What an experience! Their staff are top notch and extremely efficient – and very quickly our lunch arrived – with a few of the ladies choosing alternate meals.
Moroccan Roasted Leg of Lamb, Coffee & Black Pepper Rump
Italian Meringue, Fresh fruit, and vanilla ice cream.
It was such a relaxed day – we celebrated Dennis and Brian’s birthdays and the restaurant ‘came to the party’ with special dessert plates for them.
We sat at three tables and what was good is the mingling of everyone and chatting after lunch – no rush to get everyone back for the ‘long journey’ back to the city. Durbanville so very close to the city is an area worthy of more exploring – it is much changed with many exciting new wine estates and restaurans!
The only hassle was that on arrival the lift was not working – so down two flights of stairs, we all had to go! Then the lift mechanics repaired the lift and ‘blow me down’ the power went off (with load shedding) but fortunately we had another route we could take everyone to get to the coach, (no stairs). So, all’s well that ends well!
