She’s your first teacher and might be the person you still turn to for advice. Sometimes it’s hard to put into words just how much she means in your life, but take her somewhere special and she’ll know just what you are trying to tell her. There’s no better place than Nederburg to say it for you this Mother’s Day.
Nederburg’s new assistant white-wine maker, Chandré Petersen, and her mom, Sheryl, will be there too.
The Red Table restaurant, in Nederburg’s historic manor house, will be laying on a gastronomic feast, prepared by chef Edmore Ruzoza. Select the biltong, gorgonzola and fig tartlets, or deep-fried camembert with strawberries and balsamic cream, for starters. Mains will be a choice between herb-crusted rack of lamb, seared Norwegian salmon or porcini wild mushroom open lasagne. Dessert will be a divinely decadent black forest gâteau, served with berry compote and white chocolate shavings.
There will be a wide selection of Nederburg wines, offered by the glass and by the bottle, including The Winemasters, Heritage Heroes, Ingenuity and Two Centuries collections. Chandré, who is also former Cape Winemakers’ Guild Protégé, will be close by to tell you more about the wines, and help with any pairing suggestions.
To top it off, every mother will be treated to a surprise gift from Nederburg.
Lunch on Mother’s Day will be served from 12:00 at R350 per person (wine and service charge excluded). Booking is essential, and full payment is required to secure a booking. Kids are also catered for, at around R50 per head.
