Du Toitskloof Food and Wine - Part 1


Today's post is a two part series on Du Toitskloof Cellar and Melissa's Food located in the scenic Breedekloof Wine Valley. Amanda joined us on this particular trip where we enjoyed something to eat and drink. Robbie and I shared a bottle of red wine, the 2013 Nebbiolo, and a wood fired pizza. Amanda chose something sweet instead. She wanted a slice of the pecan cheesecake and I suggested the Earl Grey tea. Amanda said the tea tasted like lavender.

Bergsig Wine Estate and Bistro


We visited the Bergsig Wine Estate and Bistro for my husband's birthday. We had lunch there with our three girls. Jessica, Samantha, and I ordered the Creamy Seafood Soup. Samantha and I also asked for the Bobotie to share. Amanda had the Chicken Schnitzel and Robbie, my hubby, had the Oxtail. We also ordered a bottle of the award winning Touriga Nacional 2013. The service, although slow, was friendly and the view of the vineyards and mountains was beautiful.

Wine Tasting at Jason's Hill


One of the nicest wine estates and bistros in our area is at Jason's Hill in the Slanghoek Valley. The views are spectacular, the wines are exceptional, and the food is wonderful.

Amanda often goes wine tasting with us. Some places are more kid friendly than others and Jason's Hill has a playground and birds in small aviaries to look at. Amanda also enjoyed a hot chocolate in the bistro upstairs while we were downstairs trying a few of the multi-award winning wines by one of South Africa's pioneer female winemakers, Ivy Du Toit.
