So with Women’s Month in the air, hubby treated me to a lunch at the Jonkershuis Restaurant at Groot Constantia. Considering our love for food and wine, Groot Constantia has always been on our list of places to visit so I was super excited to go.
There was a bit of a chill in the air but I was more than happy to sit outside because the views were just breathtaking!
We started out with a bottle of Maiden’s Prayer Red Blend from Diemersfontein, Wellington considering that there was a slight chill in the air.
Marc was quite hungry at the time (we woke up late) so we headed straight for the mains. Me not being able to eat much, almost always skip starters. Marc had some of his favourite red meats, a medium rare Steak. I went for the roast leg of lamb which had an interesting minty sauce. I loved the veggies that went with the red meats. Just gave the plate the right balance.
After lunch we explored the estate and took a walk up to wine sales for a quick wine tasting. We have a taste for Stellenbosch and Paarl wine. When we visited a wine estate in the southern suburbs before we weren’t very impressed with the wines. I was somewhat hesitant about the wines but was delightfully surprised! We only tasted red wine (our favourite!) We also got a nice dark chocolate with our tasting that had a salty taste to it which was amazing!
After wine tasting we explored the grounds and enjoyed the scenic views.
And then we always need a take-away! In this case some Sparkling wine!
