• Nestled beneath Lion’s Head and surrounded by ocean views, the President Hotel, Cape Town, and their executive chef, invites food and wine lovers alike to indulge in a culinary experience with a five-course dinner expertly paired with Anthonij Rupert Wines. The renowned estate’s flagship range represents the pinnacle of quality, which the chef’s menu aims to match. On 25th April 2019 from 19:00, the President Hotel invites guests to enjoy a glass of the L’Ormarins Brut Classique NV MCC upon arrival, welcoming a memorable experience of uninterrupted sea views in the windless sanctuary of Bantry Bay.

    The menu, artfully paired with award winning wines, celebrates the origins of South Africa starting with an amuse bouche of Salmon Tartar accompanied by avocado and a touch of heat that will lift the flavour notes of the Cape of Good Hope Altima Sauvignon Blanc, followed by a spicy yoghurt marinated chicken with bites of coriander, tomato and charred onion complimented by the Anthonij Rupert’s Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Caroline. An icy mouthful of orange blossom and the Cape of Good Hope Serruria Chardonnay will be served to cleanse the palate for the preceding celebration of the Cape of Good Hope Sneeukrans Pinot Noir, which has been paired with roast duck, butternut and textures of plum.

    To satisfy the imminent sweet tooth, guests can anticipate a burnt white chocolate and seasonal fruit Tarte Tatin Guests and a glass of L’Ormarins Cape LBV to finish. Guests can relish the full-bodied flavours of the menu and flagship wines with live music enticing their senses beyond the taste buds, all for R450pp.
