Spend a warming winter’s day in the Durbanville Wine Valley.
Date: 21 June 2009
Farms in the Valley will be hosting the inaugural Soup, Sip & Bread this year on Sunday, 21st June 2009. This winter event co-incides with Father’s Day, on of the year’s most special days for family get togethers.
Why soup and bread? Through the centuries these staples have been symbols of warmth and conviviality. In the cold and wet Cape winters, a bowl of soup, crusty bread and red wine warm the cockles of the heart. Come and enjoy the traditional, rustic setting of Altydgedacht’s old cellar. Enjoy Thai Butternut soup paired with Gewürztraminer and hearty Minestrone with the unique Italian variety of Barbera.
De Grendel is hosting a France vs. Italy Soup Pairing as well as Cooking Classes by well known chef, Marc Wassung. Partake in a hands-on cooking class where you will prepare your own breads & soups to take home with you. France vs. Italy Soup Pairing offers you a serving of both a Tuscan Bean soup with Ciabatta and a French Onion soup served with baguette. You can match these with De Grendel’s Merlot & Shiraz and decide what makes the winning combination.
At Durbanville Hills would like to offer you a choice. For the not so hungry – the Soup and Wine pairing invites you to experiment with different soups and wine pairings, mix and match until you find the perfect combination. You can also kick back and relax in front of the cracking fire and enjoy the signature biltong soup, butternut infused with cinnamon and a mussel, ginger and coconut soup served with a selection of breads and a complimentary glass of wine.
Come and bake bread at Nitida with Jenny Morris – aka Giggling Gourmet. There will also be live jazz, award winning wines and wholesome soup to set the tone for this special Father’s Day.
Treat your family to a winter inspired Soup & Bread Buffet served with a complimentary glass of Diemersdal wine at Diemersdal Estate. In the surrounds of the beautifully restored horse stables you can also enjoy an informal wine tasting and some light music.
