December 10, 2020

Whether it’s a picnic under the ancient oaks of Spier’s historic Werf or a lavish roast, there’s a host of delicious ways to celebrate the festive season at Spier Wine Farm with your family.

Tuck into a classic Christmas roast

Spoil your family with a delicious three-course lunch in Spier’s leaf-dappled courtyard on Christmas day. The main course features three different roasted types of meat, Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. Including festive favourite desserts of all assortments.

From 12:00 – 15:00. Lunch costs R695 per adult (includes food and selected Spier Signature wines) and R300 for kids 6 to 12 with kids under 6 eat free. Book on Dineplan or call 021 809 1100.

Travel the world one bite at a time

While Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery might be famous for its slow-and-low roasted meats, it’s a potent all-rounder, as its mouth-watering Christmas lunch proves. The extensive set menu takes inspiration from a diverse array of cuisines from around the world. Starters include smoked gammon boerenkaas croquettes, trout ceviche and fresh-baked sourdough with pesto. Highlights from the mains are smoked baby chicken with spiced orange and honey sauce, baby back ribs and smoked lamb shoulder.

The veggies get star treatment in the red pepper Panzanella salad with goat cheese and the grilled pumpkin salad amongst other dishes. The range of yummy desserts includes a pavlova with cream and berries, mince pies and, of course, Vadas’s famous pastéis de nata. A specially-adapted (and just as delicious!) vegetarian menu caters to diners who don’t eat meat.

Lunch costs R695 per person (for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian menus) and R250 per child between the ages of 5 and 12. Book via 021 809 1137 or info@vadas.co.za
