Clap hands, Capetonians! While celebrating arrival of the rainy season, there’s more joy to be had: Delheim Jazz and Cheese Fondue Sundays!
June is looming, and so are blustery, rain-washed days. Glorious! Of course the Cape winter brings food and wine bargains galore, so there’s no reason to sit at home and mope alone with your take-aways.
Beat the rush by booking now for the Delheim Jazz and Cheese Fondues ASAP. Held annually for the last 10 years, this cosy, lazy lunchtime special is the perfect way to while away a rain-lashed, blustery day.
The Jazz and Cheese Fondues take place from 25 June to 27 August this year, returning to Delheim’s snug and intimate underground wine cellar. It’s here that the cheese-pot lids come off, melting all resistance with piping hot Swiss-style melty cheese and melodic jazz tunes performed live by talented local bands.
Beloved for its views as much as its wines, Delheim lies on a shoulder of the beautiful Simonsberg Mountain just outside Stellenbosch. A home for generations since 1699, the estate is cherished by locals for its family-friendliness.
The Sperling family have made award-wining wine on Delheim since the 1960s and it is from their own background that the idea for the cheese fondues arose. Cape wine industry legend and patriarch “Spatz” Sperling was born in Tettnang, a German town on the border of cheese-loving Switzerland, and so, voila! Cheeeeeese.
The Cheese Fondues are best experience at your own pace among a group of friends. Big pots of melted Emmenthaler and Gruyere cheese, bread and bits to dip, lekker Delheim wyne – what’s not to love?
Your Delheim Jazz and Cheese Fondue booking includes a shared cheese fondue for 2, live music and a glass of traditional heart-warming glühwein at only R230 per person. Starters and desserts are ordered separately from the a la carte menu and charged for accordingly.
Price: R230 per person
Dates: 25 June | 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 July | 6, 9, 13, 20 and 27 August.
Time: 12:30 – 15:30
