Terra del Capo Summer Antipasti alfresco!

The Terra del Capo Antipasti bar at Anthonij Rupert Wine Estate just outside Franschhoek has a laidback, yet sophisticated vibe. The food is served in the generous Italian antipasto manner, with lots of little plates to choose and share. This is a great way to enjoy a leisurely meal with some of the estate’s huge range of wines and bubblies. Extremely good value for money, too – you can (and should) order the entire menu without breaking the bank. On sunny days the beautiful landscaped gardens provide the perfect backdrop for your alfresco feast.

This summer’s seasonally inspired menu includes a variety of contemporary and traditional antipasti plates. Bursting with vibrant, fresh flavours and taking its lead from local Cape Winelands produce, the menu delivers Italian authenticity. Choose from inspired vegetarian, seafood and meat antipasti, or simply opt for a platter or two of expertly-sourced artisanal cheese and charcuterie.

Vegetarian options include a crunchy spring salad with ricotta crostini, mouthwatering truffle polenta chips and a refreshing watermelon salad with spiced pickled onions, radish and lime salt.

Keeping things local, the smoked Franschhoek trout salad, served with fennel, apple and golden beetroot and drizzled with a honey apple cider vinaigrette, is perfect for a hot summer‚Äôs day. Chef HW Pieterse’s homemade¬†Salsiccia¬†sausages, as well as his bresaola produced from estate-raised Black Angus beef, are both a must try.

End off your meal with one of the daily sweet treats on offer.

Prefer a lighter culinary trip to Italy? The Terra del Capo Tasting Room’s popular Italian Cheese & Wine Pairing and Shiraz & Charcuterie Pairing options present the ideal opportunity to learn about international ingredients and the best flavour combinations, while you enjoy every morsel and sip.

Shiraz and Charcuterie Pairing:

Charcuterie’s salty, aromatic flavours and sweet, rich fattiness are naturally complemented by the typically bright acidity, bold fruitiness and spiciness of outstanding Shiraz wines Рa partnership which this tasting experience aims to highlight. The Shiraz & Charcuterie Pairing presents three of the estate’s Shiraz wines, respectively from the popular Protea, terroir-driven Cape of Good Hope and flagship Anthonij Rupert ranges, accompanied by three expertly-sourced Italian charcuteries РNapoli salami, Coppa and Parma ham.

The pairing costs of R120 per person. The estate operates on a ‚ÄėBy Appointment Only‚Äô basis, so pre-booking is essential. For more information and reservations, contact 021 874 9074 or email tasting@rupertwines.com.

With the upcoming festive season just around the corner, the shop will be stocked full of unique gifts, custom designed and created by local suppliers and artisans, as well as a range of imported quality Italian must-haves.
