May until October 2022
Some things are just made to be put together. Think bacon and egg, cheese and tomato and even more classic, cheese and wine. A great way to indulge these two champions is at Stellenbosch Hills, where their Cheese and Wine Pairings are perfectly co ordinated..
The four wines and highly-rated artisan cheeses from Stanford-based producer, Stonehouse on offer in the tasting room are:
- Stellenbosch Hills’ award-winning Sauvignon Blanc whose lively acidity and burst of fruit marry with the semi-soft cheese’s garlic-and-chives seasoning;
- The winery’s bold Shiraz, with its spice and dark berry traits, that meets a semi-soft cheese with Cajun character;
- A glass of Cabernet Sauvignon – the most awarded variety for the Stellenbosch region, which is elevated even further by the Italian herbs that flavour the semi-soft cheese served alongside it; and,
.The winery’s own Muscat de Hambourg, a magnificent dessert wine that is not only the perfect round-off to any dinner, but also to this series where it is served with a creamy Camembert.
The Stellenbosch Hills Wine & Cheese Pairing is just R95 per person and must be booked ahead of your visit. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 021 881 3828 to reserve a spot.
The Stellenbosch Hills tasting room is open Monday to Friday, 09h00 to 17h00; and Saturday, 10h00 to 15h00. It is closed on public holidays.
The Stellenbosch Hills winery and tasting room is located at the intersection of the R310 and Vlottenburg Road, just outside Stellenbosch.
