Christmas Food Pairing

Exclusive: Christmas lunch Menu with wines from Stellenbosch Vineyards!

There’s nothing like enjoying a home cooked meal with loved ones during the festive season. We asked our head chef, Livinia Plaatjies what she’s planning to serve at her Christmas table and even paired it with their perfect wine partners from of our award-winning collection of fine wines.

Chef Vina’s Picture-Perfect Christmas Lunch


Roasted tomato puff, with smoked cheese and basil pesto.

Served with fresh herbed bread.

Pair this dish with our Infiniti Brut Methode Cap Classique 2014 that beautifully compliments the acidity of the tomato and the smokiness of the cheese.


Braised chicken with chutnaise sauce

Beef tongue and spinach bake

Spiced rice

Roasted seasonal vegetables

Caramelized sweet potato


As it is the season of giving, we have two delicious mains on the menu. Both options pair extremely well with our Stellenbosch Vineyards Credo Chenin Blanc 2016.

The fruitiness of the Chenin Blanc works pleasantly with the sweetness you get from the chutnaise sauce on the chicken and the caramelized sweet potato, while the butteriness from the French oak complements the creamy, richness of the beef tongue and spinach bake.



Traditional trifle with a twist

Made with rooibos tea jelly, milk custard, swiss roll and topped with cherries. End your meal on a sweet note by pairing this Christmas staple with our Infiniti Noble late harvest 2016.

Matching the intense aroma of the wine, this sweet dessert brings out the apricot and marmalade flavours of the Infiniti Noble late harvest 2016.

From starters to dessert, treat everyone’s palate to the happiest of holidays!

You can find all these great wines available for purchase at our online wine shop or at our tasting room.
