About Rupert and Rothchild

The Ultimate Food And Wine Long Weekend | Come Join Us

The late Dr Anton Rupert, an internationally respected industrialist who established a global business empire was held in high regard as a committed conservationist and together with his art-devoted wife Huberte, played an immense role in the preservation of art.

The Ultimate Food And Wine Long Weekend | Come Join Us

The Rothschild family’s passion for wine started when James de Rothschild purchased Château Lafite in 1868. His great-grandson, Baron Edmond de Rothschild embraced his vision and expanded their wine portfolio by acquiring two estates in Listrac and Moulis-en-Médoc in 1973. This was to become Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, today overseen by his son and his wife, Baron Benjamin and Baroness Ariane de Rothschild.

The tranquil surroundings lends itself to the interior of the Tasting Centre which was inspired by the South African-French influence and understated elegance of the Rupert & Rothschild brand. The custom made French oak furniture complements the natural interior, with the contemporary artwork sourced from the Rupert Art Museum in Stellenbosch.

About Nederburg

The Ultimate Food And Wine Long Weekend | Come Join Us

It all began in 1791; a journey of discovery with the love of wine making at heart. Philippus Wolvaart, a man of courage and vision, bought the farm that lay between the Berg and Palmiet rivers for 5600 guilder. Hand in hand with his wife, Margaretha, they nurtured the land and built a strong foundation on which the success of Nederburg was to flourish.

The Ultimate Food And Wine Long Weekend | Come Join Us

Home of our original wine master, these varietal wines take their name from the beautiful Cape Dutch home that Nederburg’s founder built for him and his wife in 1800. Sadly, just two years before the home was complete, his wife passed away, leaving him alone in his pride. Beautifully proportioned, the Manor House mirrors the fine balance of the range. Only available at the Nederburg winery.

When the basic steps are mastered, a beautiful dance can emerge. Similarly, a fine wine is the product of a nurtured vineyard. In 1791, Philippus Wolvaart bought the Nederburg farm and built a strong foundation on which the success of Nederburg was to flourish. Softly styled with fresh and fruity aromas, this collection celebrates a journey with the love of winemaking at heart.

About Chef Mynhardt

The Ultimate Food And Wine Long Weekend | Come Join Us

Chef Mynhardt arrived in the Cape twelve years ago and found himself working in a Wine Bar in De Waterkant. A whole world of food and wine started unfolding in front of him and he fell hopelessly in love with the craft in all its facets.

After spending some time in Cape Town managing restaurants his path led him to Riebeek Kasteel where he met the formidable Anton Espost and his wife Cecile. They had a dream to establish a peasant wine bar and eatery and so ‘Bar Bar Black Sheep’ was born. The memory of this time lies like a glimmering jewel in my mind.
