Le Pommier Wine Estate is situated just outside Stellenbosch on the Helshoogte Pass towards Franschhoek. This family-friendly, wine farm boasts magnificent mountain views. It offers a restaurant, various accommodation options (including self-catering units) a wine tasting area as well as a function venue. We will also soon feature a country-style vineyard barn function & wedding venue.
We are easing into spring with two new delicious food & wine pairing experiences.
Enjoy the all-new Pizza and Wine Pairing as well as the Country Food & Wine Pairing experiences, available either in the restaurant or in our tasting room overlooking the picturesque Simonsberg Mountains.
These hearty pairings both feature four of Le Pommier’s wines paired with either bite-size pizzas or the Country food tidbits. The current Le Pommier wines on offer include a Sauvignon Blanc, dry Rosé, rich Red Blend and Cabernet Franc.
Le Pommier Jonathan’s Malbec is a limited release wine and is only available to enjoy in the restaurant. You can also purchase this wine directly from the wine tasting area.
The Le Pommier Wine range is a product of the Banghoek Valley, notably one of the top wine regions in South Africa. The range is characterised by excellent quality wines that also appeal to your novice wine drinker. It’s your everyday wine range that you can unwind within the company of great friends for a relaxing evening or enjoy with a good meal.
We recently installed an authentic wood-fired pizza oven to complement our dining offers. You can order our freshly made, thin-crust pizzas, topped with our secret tomato pizza sauce and mozzarella and build your own delicious pizza from a wide range of toppings. Pizzas are available daily from noon.
Wine and Pizza pairing:
Moist, soft, creamy but slightly salty Danish Feta and olives pair perfectly with Sauvignon Blanc, adding a refreshing element of tart acidity so your mouth is continually refreshed in between bites. Rosé with strawberry, fresh herbs and gooseberry aromas with a tangy barbeque chicken pizza. Le Pommier Red Blend highlights the spices that go into the boerewors pizza. Pepperoni has a strong and spicy flavour, demanding a full-bodied red wine to contend with, like the Le Pommier Cabernet Franc.
Wine and Country Food pairing:
Le Pommier Sauvignon Blanc pairs magnificently with Basil Pesto Pasta. The crispness of the Sauvignon Blanc refreshes and cleanses the palate prepare it for another burst of flavour from the pesto. The dry Rosé with its tropical fruit flavours complements the bobotie meatball. Red Blend with dark fruit characters on the noses and velvety tannis on the palate matches the s savoury and earthy Chicken Pie splendidly. Lastly Cabernet Franc has great food pairing potential and we combined it with Beef Carpaccio, pickled shimeji mushrooms and parmesan shavings.
The choice of Le Pommier’s Wine & Pizza or Wine & Country Food pairings are available Monday to Saturday from noon @R75 per person. Bookings recommended, please dial 021-8851269 to make a booking or use the Eat Out App on our website.
