The Elgin Cool Wine & Country Food Festival is back, and it’s guaranteed to be one of this year’s social calendar highlights. Taking place over the weekend of 27 and 28 April participating Elgin Wine Producers will be pulling out the stops to showcase their range of fine wines paired with amazing food offerings.
One of the weekend’s not-to-be-missed attractions will no doubt be Paul Cluver Wines who have a selection of scrumptious treats in store at the estate during the weekend. The lineup includes a pairing of their cool climate wines with a selection of irresistible savoury and sweet offerings from the SALT at Paul Cluver kitchen. A lip-smacking Paul Cluver Cheese Board, featuring a selection of locally sourced cheeses, charcuterie, preserves, olives and freshly baked bread at R200 per cheese board, is ideal as a light lunch enjoyment. For those with a sweet tooth the cinnamon sugar Apple Fritters made with freshly picked Gala apples from the estate at R40 for six will be the perfect anytime treat during the weekend’s festivities.
For that something extra special the estate’s Swirl & Savour offering is not to be missed. SALT at Paul Cluver will be serving a delectable à la carte menu during the weekend, which is guaranteed to be a feast for the senses. Choose between a two-course menu at R295 per person or the indulgent three-course menu at R370 menu. SALT’s popular Sharing Platter will also be available over the two days, and will comfortably feed two hungry guests. The à la carte menu and platter exclude wine.
With Winter fast approaching be sure to stock up on some wines from the Tasting Room for your collection, or to sip and savour in front of the fire place on a chilly evening.
