Winter Wine Down Evening at De Grendel (Durbanville Wine Valley)


On the last Friday of July, De Grendel’s Tasting Room is open until 19h00 for their popular Winter Wine Down Evenings. With panoramic and breath-taking vistas of Table Mountain, De Grendel is the perfect destination in the Durbanville Wine Valley to enjoy a spectacular sunset accompanied by a well-deserved glass of wine and some gourmet snacks at the end of the week.

From the tasting lounge and veranda, guests can look out over the vineyards with a magnificent Cape Town city and Atlantic Ocean to paint the perfect canvas. De Grendel’s tasting room will be open from 16h30 to 19h00 to serve their acclaimed wines by the bottle. Their Gourmet Snack Selection, prepared by Chef Ian Bergh, is available at the De Grendel Tasting Room for R195 per selection. This delicious new addition is ideal as a light snack for two whilst soaking up the last rays of sunshine.
