Aan Tafel Restaurant @ Diemersfontein 

Jan van Riebeck Drive (R301), Wellington

Three generations of the Sonnenberg family have been creating wines at Diemersfontein since 1942.

From humble beginnings, it is now home to a world-class range of wines, a restaurant, a venue for weddings or any other functions, as well as 30 luxurious en-suite guest rooms.

This was my first visit to Diemersfontein, therefore I was excited to review their restaurant for my food and wine blog in Cape Town. 

I have always enjoyed their Pinotage,  therefore I was keen to taste some of the other wines they have on offer.

On the menu:

On the menu was sweet pea puree with calamari, litchi & sweet chutney as a starter, and Cape Malay Chicken Supreme with bombay potatoes and a lentil salsa for main.

  Both dishes were absolutely amazing.
Aan Tafel Restaurant is brand new, and only opened in February 2019.  They offer local fresh cuisine together with their stunning, extremely reasonably priced wines, and the views from the Estate are breathtaking.

The wine tasting room at Diemersfontein is open from 10h00-17h00 seven days a week.  This is great as many wine estates have limited hours and are often closed for one day of the week.  Johan and his team will assist you in tasting their extensive wine menu, where you can try one of their food and wine pairings or a platter prepared by Aan Tafel Restaurant on the deck.

Diemersfontein has three ranges of wine, namely the Carpe Diem range, the Diemersfontein range and the Thokozani range.  The Estate is well know for their two Pinotages, interestingly referred to as the Tale of Two Daughters.  The Carpe Diem Pinotage is one sister who is always striving for classic elegance, whereas the other sister, the Coffee Pinotage, is the true rebel and loved by all Pinotage.

I would highly recommend you visit Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate, as their food and wines are as stunning as their scenery, and I really enjoyed reviewing it for my food and wine blog in Cape Town.
