Wine lovers can rejoice as most vineyards are slowly and safely reopening their doors to welcome local and visitors. And one of our must-try Cape wine destinations to visit is Delheim Wine Estate, if only for their structured wine tasting event, The Cellar Door Experience.
They offer two different types of wine tastings – the Reserve Tasting and the Delheim Tasting. All of the Delheim vintage wines from 2019 onwards are vegan friendly.
‘The Reserve Tasting’ is favoured by wine aficionados and those keen on learning more about the beauty of winemaking. This experience uncovers some of Delheim’s best-kept gems and sought after labels.
If you’re after a more accessible version, the ‘Delheim Tasting’ brings out the best with 5 of the winery’s standard offering. Tasting sessions are held in the Downstairs cellar or on the outdoor garden patio which boasts with stunning views.
The decision to reboot The Cellar Door Experience could not have been more ideal right now – Delheim took home a few prestigious statuses for three of their wines from the 2021 edition of Platter’s South African Wine Guide.
Five-star ratings were awarded to their Grand Reserve 2017, Vera Cruz Pinotage 2017 and the Edelspatz Noble Late Harvest 2019, a Rhine Riesling renowned as one of South Africa’s best dessert wines.
All three iconic wines also received the stamp of approval of the eminent UK wine fundi, Tim Atkins, during his special report on South African wines.
This holiday season, Capetonians can brush up on some wine knowledge and try the three award-winning wines firsthand with ‘The Reserve Tasting’.
Cheese and meat platters can also be ordered as part of your tasting, and don’t leave without popping in at the restaurant for a fresh and seasonal menu.
Advance booking is essential to ensure safe, COVID-protocols.
