Be sure to diarise Saturday, 26 September, which marks the date for the annual Anthonij Rupert Estate Protea Party.
The setting is a marquee, erected on the lawns of the Anthonij Rupert Tasting room, where you will dine under the stars with the majestic Drakenstein Mountains as your backdrop.
Make your way to the Estate by 18:30 pm to take advantage of the sun setting over the Franschhoek valley where you’ll be welcomed with a thirst quenching Protea Rosé cocktail.
A harvest style Winelands feast of fresh seasonal ingredients from the Franschhoek valley follows. A variety of delicious snacks, including skewers of roasted and marinated vegetables, beef empanadas & venison Carpaccio with rocket will kick off the feast. Slow roasted pork belly takes centre stage, served with roasted apples and a variety of other delicious accompaniments.
Round off your evening by indulging in the delectable treats on offer at the dessert station, which includes gourmet cupcakes as well as an ice cream bar with all the toppings.
Work off your dessert on the dance floor with live music provided by the popular rocking Newton band before heading home.
