We were invited to a six course Degustation Wine and Dinner Experience, therefore you can only imagine how excited I was to review this for my food and wine blog. (The French name for a tasting menu is "menu dégustation").
From the minute we walked into the Hotel, we were warmly welcomed by all the staff. They all went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and that all our needs were met.
Our host for the evening, Annelize Ferreira from Dream Resorts, was absolutely amazing and we had an incredible evening. We started off the evening with pre-dinner drinks, and then moved into the Sauvage Restaurant for a wonderful culinary delight.
