  • Delheim Goes Cape Malay in May!

    Fire up winter with a hearty, traditional meal at Delheim every Saturday in May.

    Re-connect with the alluring history of the Cape this winter by joining us for our special Cape Malay lunches in May. Known for their spice and warmth, the Cape Malay dishes will be the perfect foil for the cold winter days that lie ahead. The exclusive Cape Malay menu will spice things up every Saturday in May: the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th – and bookings are now open.

    “Cape Malay cuisine is such an important part of the Western Cape culture,” says Delheim's chef Bruce von Pressentin. “It reaches into a history that is tied to wonderfully descriptive language, and its traditions of food, conviviality and hospitality that have been passed down for many years are often overlooked. “Without it, we would not have the vibrant and diverse food culture that we have. Our Cape Malay menu is a celebration of these aromatic, heart-warming dishes.” 

    The journey along this spice route begins with crispy samosas of beef and vegetable; moreish lamb half-moons, and sumptuous curried yellow tail or as it is more affectionately known in the Cape - piekelvis. No hearty, traditional meal of this kind is complete without warm bread of course, which will be served on the side with swirls of butter. Chicken often features in Cape Malay dishes and does so in the mains. Fragrant butter chicken is accompanied by mini homemade rotis, spicy sambals and toasted coconut. But that is not all. There is a thick, curried lamb stew, or denningsvleis, with jasmine rice, pots of delicious beef biryani, and a rich, flavoursome potato and green bean stew - gestoofde aartappel en groenboontjie-bredie. Then, dessert: a course that as any die-hard Cape Malay food-fan knows is what you always keep space for. Von Pressentin’s menu serves up koesüster pastries and boeber, a sweet milk and sago-type pudding, and concludes with a welbeloontjie or small reward - stick bread made over the coals and served with butter and homemade jam.

    The Cape Malay set menu is available at only R300pp and booking is essential. Please note that the menu is only available for entire tables.

  • Mushroom Forage

    Date: 15, 16, 30  June and 1 July

    Cost: R695 per person Note: Tickets are limited to 40 per day. No group bookings allowed due to the intimate nature of this event.

    It's nearly mushroom time! Soon, mushroom foragers will head into the forest in search of delicious delicacies that only pop out for a short time every year. Our popular Mushroom Forage will open up the mesmerising world of fungi and teach you how to identify, forage and clean your very own hand-picked mushrooms.

    Our Mushroom Forage was awarded “Highly Commended” in the Best Wine Event category in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Challenge 2017. It is a phenomenal achievement to be recognized amongst top international wineries so you can be sure you’ll enjoy a high calibre, memorable experience!

    These fun(gi) excursions have run annually over a number of years and become hugely popular due to the magical experience as well as the hosts themselves - Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary “The Mushroom Fundi” Goldman. Both are experienced foragers and talented educators, who lead these ‘silent hunts’ along with the family’s inimitable Jack Russells.

    The day will begin with an enlightening workshop on mushroom identification in the farm’s vat cellar, followed by a short walk to the mushroom hunt in Delheim’s lush pine forest. Foragers will then head for the estate’s Garden Restaurant where Chef Bruce von Pressentin lays on a three-course meal that showcases these flavoursome marvels.

    This unique gourmet food and wine experience is for adults only and costs R695 per person. It includes an informative workshop, mushroom hunt, a tantalising mushroom-themed food and wine experience and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy at home. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and a warm jacket and should bring their own pocket knife and baskets for the hunt. The events will still take place even if it rains and all the fun starts at 09:30 until 14:30 but book off the rest of your day to make the most of the beautiful, serene surroundings.

    Warning: As fun and rewarding as foraging for mushrooms is, always practice caution as there are many varieties that are not safe to eat. We suggest taking photos of edible varieties to easily identify and ensuring that they are cooked as few mushrooms are safe to consume raw.

    Please note: Although these events take place at the time of year when there is the best chance of finding wild mushrooms and the ‘moon is right’, Delheim cannot guarantee that you will find any on the day.

    Cost: R230 per person
    Booking essential: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 021 888 4607

    We ward off the winter blues with Jazz and Cheese Fondue indulgences in our downstairs cellar. This cosy cellar, snug with low ceilings and rustic candlelit tables, sets the scene for families and friends to huddle around fondue pots: ease into a laid-back Sunday afternoon, enriched with lingering aromas of pungent melting cheese, quality wines and jazzy tunes.

    Delheim swirls their cheese fondue to an authentic Swiss recipe that oozes deliciousness and combines Emmental, Gruyere and white wine for a hearty ‘blast from the past’. The fondue makes its way to your table with oven fresh baguette dippers and vegetable crudités. Guests can also order starters and dessert from Delheim’s restaurant menu at an additional cost.

    Delheim’s annual Start of Harvest Festival is back! After a devastating fire on the Simonsberg Mountain put a cork in the event for 2016, it has been re-kindled with vigour and exciting changes. Now is the time book out the family calendar for January 28 and 29, when Delheim Start of Harvest Festival returns.

    The event at the celebrated Stellenbosch wine farm is among the first to usher in the grape-picking season’s hustle-and-bustle. This is the time that farms across the winelands prepare to bring in the fruit; a time of joy after year-long toil and tending the vines. “The fire that swept through this area forced us to cancel the event last year, but we’re back – better and stronger,” says Delheim Destination Manager Charlotte Terblanche. “In fact, our regulars have been chomping at the bit so if you’re planning to come, best book early.”

    Once again, the ever-popular grape stomping is back. It is an ancient tradition across the world that’s symbolic of the fellowship of wine and guaranteed to ignite the fun. There will be live music and lawn games, too.

    This time however, brave participants and eager observers will light up with enthusiasm for Delheim’s new barrel-rolling races – a laugh-a-minute and certainly not as easy as you might think.

    As for the food, the harvest table format has been revamped. The feast is still on, but there will be even greater diversity and the opportunity to taste the eminent suitability of Delheim wines with food. Vegetarian options will be provided as well as a stand for dessert and an ice-cream truck.

    With Germany being the birth country of Delheim patriarch and industry icon ‘Spatz’ Sperling, you can look forward to a few tasty specialities from this part of the world like tasty Bratwurst. Every food offering will be sold with the ideal Delheim wine. Think Bratwurst with a blue-blood Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend, or decadent sweets with a refreshing glass of Delheim’s famed rosé - SA’s first in the style made with Pinotage grapes.
