Today we visited the Diemersdal Wine Estate. Deon bought some wine from the cellar. Diemersdal wines are part of the Durbanville Wine Valley which is one of the oldest wine regions in the Western Cape. Diemersdal is famous with Capetonians for festivals.
The estate itself is picture perfect with white Cape Dutch style buildings, green vineyards and Iceberg roses at the entrance which leads you to the restaurant. We had a choice of being seated inside or outside, but we chose to sit inside the eatery.
The main course was a choice between roasted pork belly with fricassee of baby carrots, beetroot and pea shoots- R90; smoked sirloin, crispy baby potatoes, spicy tomato relish and rocket salad – R100 or catch of the day, roasted baby marrow and aubergine with mint and juniper cream – R80
After studying the menu, we decided on the tapas menu, as well as a glass of their famous Sauvignon Blanc. The tapas included beef koftas with cucumber pickle; rocket, asparagus and Huguenot salad; creamed cob soup; roasted pork belly; pan fried line fish and minted aubergine. We particularly enjoyed the freshness of the mint with the fish.
Two guests simultaneously spilled all of their coffee on the table they were sitting at, which was rather amusing. We decided not to have any dessert or coffee and settled our bill after an enjoyable meal.
