26 Feb Our Goatshed Dinners Are Back – With A Revived Twist!
At Fairview, there is always a story to share behind everything, none more so than our wine and food. For this reason, this year our Goatshed Restaurant will host its popular annual Goatshed Dinners throughout the winter period, but this time around, we’ve added a more focused twist. To enhance our delicious farm-to-plate dishes, we’ve curated a wine and food pairing using wines exclusively from our food-friendly Regional Revival Range.
Fairview’s Regional Revival Range brings storytelling to the fore, blending together adventurous grape varieties with cutting-edge winemaking. Inspired by wines of the Old World, the range takes these traditional regional styles and brings them alive to local palates by integrating an unexpected Cape twist. Take for example our Fairview Brut MCC, a bubbly made in the traditional Méthode Cap Classique style, but using completely non-traditional varieties Viognier, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Noir. All of these award-winning wines are designed to pair with fine fare, and so our winemaking and Goatshed team will be joining forces this year to create a menu that is orientated around one particular wine from the range at a time.
Starting with the Homtini Italian Dinner on the 25th May, the offering will highlight the Tuscan roots of the Homtini Red Blend wine to be paired effortlessly with delicious Italian-style cuisine. The same can be said for all 6 dinners, paired with a matching theme that links to each of our wines’ regional origins. The dinners will culminate in the Regional Revival Range Chef’s Journey evening, during which time Chef SJ will take the highlight meal and wine pairings from our other 6 Regional Revival Range focused nights and create a culinary experience to be truly savoured.
Now don’t fret! Naturally, we would never take away our ever-popular and much loved Fairview Shiraz and Free-Range Shank evening. This will still be held on the 15th June, perfectly in line with SA Shiraz Celebration week! With this said, we encourage you to come and join us on one of the other Revival dinner nights to experience something a little different.
Tickets include a hearty three-course meal prepared by the Goatshed’s much-loved chef, SJ Nel, as well as beautifully paired Fairview Regional Revival Range wines to complement each dish. Fairview’s own farm fresh, free range meat and cheese will feature on the menu.
Tickets cost R325 per person, including wine. The cost for the Chef’s Journey on the 27th of July is R375 per person, as the evening will include a more broad offering and a more substantial wine offering.
