If there’s one thing I love more about Franschhoek, it is Franschhoek in winter! Delicious meals, fireplaces, great red wine and … hardly any tourists 🙂 That’s why I’m excited about the new Italian inspired Winter Menu that Terra del Capo has launched (Anthonij Rupert Wyne entrance).
Winter takes centre stage as the inspiration for Terra del Capo Antipasti Bar’s seasonal menu. A carefully curated menu of quintessential Italian dishes, which features a handful of signature favourites as well as some new plates too tempting not to try.
Inspired by seasonal produce from the winelands choose from a selection of vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes as well as an assortment of platters which are perfect for sharing. The tapas-style dishes perfectly complement the range of Protea, L’Ormarins, Cape of Good Hope, Anthonij Rupert and Terra del Capo wines available to enjoy with your dining experience.
A firm favourite is the Italian mini Burrata complemented with artichokes, capers and pinenuts, served with a drizzling of White Balsamic and Zataar vinaigrette. Freshly prepared local smoked Salmon Trout, dressed in a Gremolata crème fraiche, preserved lemon and watercress paired with the Cape of Good Hope Semillon, showcases one of the best culinary matches from the Franschhoek valley. Highlights on this season’s menu are the estate raised Black Angus Beef and Truffles produced from their Altima Estate. To get your Truffle fix, look no further than the Truffled Polenta chips served with Truffle Aioli. Making a comeback is Chef HW’s estate-raised Black Angus Beef Italian style sausages as well as the mouthwatering Angus BeefSalsiccia Meatballs served in a heartwarming Beef Brodo.
Extend your visit to the estate by booking a winetasting to taste some to the estate‘s excellent wines, either before or after lunch. The Franschhoek Motor Museum, just a short tram ride away, is a highlight for all luxury and vintage car enthusiasts – the perfect ending to your day out.
The Terra del Capo Tasting Room and Antipasto Bar are open from Tuesday to Sunday (10am to 4:30pm), but pre-booking is essential. For more information and reservations contact email@example.com or phone 021 874 9041.
