Wine Tasting at Klein Roosboom Boutique Winery

Wine tasting with a difference… inside a cave, yes you read properly a cave…Well actually it an old concrete wine tank which has been stunningly converted into various size caves for an intimate wine tasting.

Their website boasts that: ‘You have discovered” and that you must “Feel free to share the secret with others.” Once you have been for a visit, you quickly realize that you just want to share this amazing place with one and all.

Winemaker-owner, Karin de Villiers, or Tannie Karin, as all the staff very fondly refer to her, really is the glue that holds this amazing place together. The stories they tell and experiences they have had with the family really add a personal touch to the experience.

But I have kept the best part of Klein Roosboom back till last… it is their ‘caves’. No,

As a boutique winery, it is not easy to find our wines anywhere else.

We enjoyed the cheese & charcuterie platter as week as the biltong platter.

One for the books for sure!

JéAn Restaurant at Klein Roosboom Wine Farm

What a find…Klein Roosboom was, on the M13, Tygerberg Valley Road, Durbanville, definitely #capetownsbestkeptsecret, the setting, the views of the vineyards and the food, all 5 stars!!!

At JéAn Restaurant, they promise,” Food that’s not pretentious with “schmears” & “foam”, but beautiful bring-down-the-house food.” And boy do they deliver, everything little morsel packed full of flavour. That broodjie was to die for and for a non-Marmite eater to say that should speak volumes.

The potatoes to the roasted veggies and the lamb and of course the Chicken Pie, everything was simply yummy with a capital Y!!!
