Experience Award-Winning Farm-to-Fork Goodness at Avondale Wine Estate this Winter

Avondale Wine Estate, situated just outside Paarl on the slopes of the Klein Drakenstein mountains, and home to FABER – one of Africa and South Africa’s leading restaurants (Haute Grandeur Awards 2020: Best Garden Restaurant in Africa, Most Unique Experience in Africa, Best Restaurant View in South Africa) shares some fun, safe and delicious experiences available this July and August.

FABER
After its annual break, FABER is once again open to the public from Wednesday, 21 July 2021 (strictly COVID19 compliant).

Visit them for lunch Wednesday to Sunday from 12:00 (last reservation at 14:00) or dinner, Thursday to Saturday from 18:00 (last reservation at 20:00)
(Due to COVID restrictions we will be closing by 21:00 to allow staff enough time to get home before curfew.)

FABER 2 Course Special (R 275.00 per person)
Enjoy a FABER farm-to-fork 2-course special. Start off with a slice of the freshly baked, slow-fermented sourdough and their famous pumpkin fritters before choosing between 2 mains and 2 desserts, accompanied with a side of fries. The contemporary and wholesome dishes can be enjoyed with Avondale organic and biodynamic wines sold at cellar door prices (pending COVID19 lockdown restrictions).

Tables are socially distanced on the veranda, overlooking the lush gardens and vineyards, or inside the restaurant with a roaring fireplace, looking into the open plan kitchen.

Lunch: Wednesday to Sunday from 12:00 (last reservation at 14:00)
Dinner: Thursday to Saturday from 18:00 (last reservation at 20:00)

Full seasonal and organic á la carte and six-course FABER menus are also available.

Weekend Steak Night Special (R 235.00 per person)
Enjoy the FABER breadboard with a taster of Avondale MCC (pending COVID19 lockdown restrictions), followed by a FABER main course steak and a glass of Avondale Samsara Syrah 2011 (pending COVID19 lockdown restrictions).

They served high-quality grass-fed beef, that has been wet-aged for 28 days by their local butcher and then dry-aged by chef Dale for another 24 days – resulting in a tender and flavour bursting steak every time. As they pride themselves on serving seasonal, local and organic produce, mostly harvested from their organic garden, steak garnishes may vary each week, which is great for guests wanting to dine with us often.

Friday and Saturdays from 18:00 (last reservation at 20:00)
(Due to COVID restrictions we will be closing by 21:00 to allow staff enough time to get home before curfew.)

The full seasonal and organic á la carte and six-course FABER menus are also available.
