AVONDALE proprietor Johnathan Grieve and FABER chef-patron Eric Bulpitt are teaming up to introduce a new concept to the world of winelands dining, with the launch of a range of innovative ‘Field to Feast’ luncheons starting on Sunday, 26th March 2017, for the Autumn Feast.
Paarl estate Avondale has long been known for its pioneering biodynamic approach to viticulture and winemaking and, since opening on the estate in October 2016, FABER has fast become one of the most sought-after culinary destinations in the winelands.
Feast days will begin with a tour of the property by farm-chic tractor-trailer as Grieve, an entertaining raconteur, unpacks the biodynamic principles underpinning the growth of Avondale since the family became custodians of the land in 1996.
Whether it’s touring the farm’s biodynamic vegetable gardens or admiring the quirky Egg-mobile that supplies the kitchen with pasture-reared eggs, Bulpitt will look to spark a conversation with guests around how hyper-local sustainably-sourced produce informs and defines the menu at FABER.
Seats for each ‘Field to Feast’ are limited, and advance reservations highly recommended. Luncheons are held between 11am and 3pm and cost R550 per person, including the guided farm tour, three-course lunch, and three glasses of wine, spring water from the farm and restaurant gratuity.
