An Evening with Morné Vrey of Delaire Graff Winery £140.00 per person
Set in a lofty location on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass and overlooking the vineyards of Stellenbosch, the Delaire Graff estate is noted for its high-altitude vineyards, unique terroir and cooling sea breezes.
A relatively small estate with only 22 hectares under vine, the focus of production has been on the varietals suited to the local terroir, namely Chardonnay and red Bordeaux varietals. The desire to add other classic Cape varietals to the portfolio sent the winemaking team in search of the finest and best-matched plots to the new varietals.
The Shiraz vines are located closer to the ocean to benefit from the cooler climate, the Sauvignon is a blend of grapes sourced from four premium wine regions, and the Chenin is sourced from 35 year old bush vines in Swartland. While the Graff investment has enabled Delaire Graff to be transformed into a luxury estate with a state-of-the-art winery, this alone would not guarantee the production of great wines.
Above all, it is the unique terroirs, the premium quality of the grapes, combined with the skill of one of South Africa’s leading young winemakers, Morné Vrey, that all combine to produce some of the finest wines that South Africa has to offer.
Morné Vrey will guide you through the Delaire Graff wines, explaining why they are the perfect choice for the exquisite menu created by our team of talented chefs.
The evening begins at 7.00pm with Champagne and canapés served in the Drawing Room.
Our menu for this fantastic event will follow shortly.
