From live music and bubbles with your brunch, to cooking masterclasses and sabrage – we are creating new experiences and special moments for you at our winery.
The weather is cooling down in the Franschhoek wine valley, and with that comes new ways to enjoy time at Haute Cabrière. Cooler weather means time for red wines, heart-warming dishes and new ways to celebrate Cap Classique and time together.
With ‘views for daaays’, passionate chefs, and a cellar team creating wine for all occasions, we’re continuing the von Arnim family legacy into the next generation. We’re known for our pioneering wine blends, and now we’re pioneering new reasons to visit us in Franschhoek…
For the perfect Sunday – just add bubbles!
As promised, each month we’re celebrating the fact that Cap Classique has been made in South Africa for 50 years. So, our Sunday brunch will now include what no brunch is complete without … our Pierre Jourdan Cap Classique paired with each dish on the menu. Sit back, relax and enjoy good food, good company, and the perfect glass of bubbles, it’s how Sundays were always meant to be.
Dates: Sundays from 9am – 11am from April 2021
Become your own Masterchef with our live cooking demos hosted by Chef Nic van Wyk on select Thursdays.
We’re all about the true marriage of food and wine. True magic that happens when a dish finds its perfect pair and it’s something we love to share.
You’ll be welcomed by a sabrage to commence the class, a practice our founder, Achim von Arnim, pioneered in South Africa and is something you’ll definitely want to experience at least once. Chef Nic van Wyk will then cook up a storm and talk you through how to do it at home, followed by lunch in the terrace restaurant. You’ll receive the recipe to take home, as well as a host of happy memories and Instagram-worthy moments.
Life is made up of moments, and music is the melody that brings them together. While our restaurant covers artistry on the plate, and our Cellar Master creates poetry in each bottle, our new live music (we’re toying with the idea of throwing a comedian in the mix too!) evenings on select Saturdays brings them together in a symphony of creativity.
On select days this Autumn, enjoy breads and spreads from the bakery to start, a choice of mains, and homemade macarons with coffee for dessert.
There is surely no better way to start the first weekend of each month than enjoying one of the best views in the Cape with your favourite people and favourite dishes!
Join us each First Friday of the month when Chef Nic van Wyk will be cooking up something off-menu! From local favourites to guest requests, to his personal bests, every month will showcase something different and equally loved. Keep an eye out on our Instagram to vote for the dish you’d like to see on the menu!
We’ve created this event to share in great conversation and food together as a community in Franschhoek. You’ll see familiar faces, meet new people, and find joy in the simple pleasure of good food and wine. Everyone is welcome, and we hope to see you soon.
Pierre Jourdan & macaron pairing
This pairing was launched for Valentine’s Day, but received so much love and attention that we’ve made it part of our regular offering.
From Friday to Sunday enjoy delicate macarons paired with Cap Classique, the perfect starting or ending to a visit to Franschhoek.
