As summer draws to a magnificent close, the Nederburg wine farm is getting ready to welcome visitors to its home in Paarl during Easter. Come find out why Nederburg was recently included, for the fourth consecutive time in 2019, in the World’s Most Admired Wine Brands top 50 list by Drinks International!

Chef Lisa Cilliers of The Red Table, situated in Nederburg’s historic manor house, will be serving up a selection of delicious dishes from the restaurant’s à la carte menu, expertly matched with some of Nederburg’s award-winning wines. Given the Easter tradition, there will be plenty of fish to feast on.

Surprise blackboard specials and pre-booked picnics will also be on offer.

Nederburg’s award-winning range of wines, as well as mineral water and soft drinks, will be available at The Red Table for purchase to complement your meal or picnic.

Offered at R65 per person, the tasting includes the flagship, Nederburg Two Centuries Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 or 2015, as well as Nederburg Manor House Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (which achieved a score of 95 points - the highest rating awarded by judges - in the 2018 edition of Winemag.co.za’s annual Cabernet Sauvignon Report), and the popular Cabernet Sauvignon of the 2017 vintage that forms part of Nederburg’s core collection named The Winemasters.
