Come Wine With Us has always been about coming together, and we have missed you all! What better way to indulge in our shared love for great food, wine and company than by sharing your very own home with us and our old friends and collaborators – TLC Food Experiences and Durbanville Hills Wines. Introducing our latest endeavour to bring people together: The Come Join Us Home Experience.
Why not invite some of your friends or family around, to join us for these evenings seeing as we’re only allowed 10 people at a braai as part of the Lock-Down level 2 regulations? We promise it’ll be great ‘safe’ fun. Below are all the details you need on what to know and how to book your tickets:
Book now with a minimum order of two people at R450.00 per person (boxes of 2,4,6,8,10 available) and enjoy the delivery of an expertly curated Home Experience box for two to the value of more than R1250 per box which will include:
- A three-course meal that you simply have to heat and plate
- 3 bottles of premium Durbanville Hills Wine
- Surprise gifts from Sophisticated Chef and Come Join Us
- Live entertainment along with a few words from our founder
- Q&As with the winemakers and the chef and restaurateurs who have curated the menu
- A fun game to play at home
*We can also curate a menu for kiddies if you have any munchkins at home. Please enquire about this when making your booking online on the notes section.
You will be able to join our event and “share a table” with friends who can simply order a box of their own and join from their home. As with all of our events, there will be prizes throughout the evening (which will be sent after the event) and enough fun and cheer to feel as though we’re together! This evening won’t only be about celebration, it will also be about support: we will be donating a percentage of the proceeds from our event to the hospitality industry in the hope to support them as you have supported us.
What are you waiting for? Come Join Us and BOOK for the first of its kind digital Come Wine With Us experience.
Please be advised that this event is limited to specific Johannesburg Areas for the Wednesday and the Thursday evening due to delivery. They are as follows:
Wednesday – JHB North/West
Thursday – JHB Central/South
About Durbanville Hills wines
The unique location of Durbanville Hills’ cellar a mere 20 minutes from Cape Town’s city centre, offers not only a spectacular view of Table Mountain and Table Bay, but also an extraordinary terroir that stabilises temperatures and eliminates extremes of heat and cold. Although the Durbanville area is renowned for its SAUVIGNON BLANC that excels under the cool conditions where it is grown mostly on the cool south facing slopes, the range of RED WINES also benefit from the warmer valley outskirts and opposing northern slopes.
Durbanville Hills would not have existed without the enthusiasm of the winery’s producers and their faith in the high potential of their high-quality grapes. In the late 1990s seven grape farmers and DISTELL agreed to build a cellar as part of a joint venture to make their own wine. Since the first vintage in 1999, there are nine member farms, all located near the cellar. The member farms are Klein Roosboom (the site of the fresh-water spring that prompted the first farmers to settle in the area), Ongegund, Hillcrest, Maastricht, Morgenster, Bloemendal and Hooggelegen. Another two producers from the farms Welbeloond and De Grendel recently joined the cellar. Such is the heritage of the region that the youngest of these farms, Klein Roosboom, was established in 1714 and the oldest, a mere three years after those established in the Constantia area in 1685.
Inspired by Cape Town’s radiant energy and creative demeanour, our new premium offering – The Collector’s Reserve – is a unique range specially crafted by our winemakers using only the finest grapes from Cape Town’s best vineyards. To truly connect the Winelands and City, we have handpicked prominent landmarks in Cape Town and commissioned a vibrant Capetonian artist – Theo Vorster – to impart his vision of these landmarks onto each bottle. This range has been designed as a collector’s item for both wine and art lovers alike.
A winery as imposing as Durbanville Hills was always going to need a cellar master with matching personality and skill. Martin Moore was that person, appointed in 1998 while the cellar was still under construction. Martin was attracted to winemaking whilst growing up in Worcester, spending many a weekend on a farm – attentively watching vineyards coming into production and wine being produced at a small winery. Today, he is an ambassador for the unique location of Durbanville Hills and its influence on the wines. “Wines are made in the vineyard,” he declares.
