Vergelegen Wine Estate eagerly invites visitors to join in on the celebrations as the sunflower season begins.
A vast tract of sunflowers is in full bloom near the Stables restaurant at Vergelegen. Visitors are welcome to take a walk through the extraordinary display of flowers. Take a couple of selfies against the backdrop of yellow and purchase a bunch of sunflowers to take home.
To get into the spirit of celebration, the Stables restaurant is decorated with freshly cut flowers. The waitrons have donned new outfits with “Vergelegen is blooming amazing” and even the menu has incorporated sunflowers and their seeds into several dishes.
Enjoy scones served with sunflower petal jam and sunflower seed butter, farms pears poached in Vergelegen Chardonnay, served with blue cheese and toasted sunflower seeds. The sunflower themed menu continues with the free-range chicken breast with sunflower and cumin crust, sunflower petal ice cream and sunflower decorated cupcakes.
