Carden Park will be playing host to wine expert JD Rossouw, winemaker at Franschhoek Cellar, on Thursday 29th October for a special Wine &‚ Dine evening.

Guests will enjoy an inventive three course African-themed menu to compliment the South African wines on offer during the evening.

The wines available to try on the evening will include:

  • Franschhoek Vineyards Semillon
  • Franschhoek Vineyards Shiraz
  • Bellingham Ancient Earth Chardonnay
  • Bellingham Ancient Earth Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Millstream Rosƒ©

The event begins‚ with a drinks reception at 7pm where you’ll enjoy a complimentary glass of Carden Old Gold and an introduction from JD before dinner is served at 7.30pm.

After a starter of roast hake fillet with mussel broth and crispy calamari, you will‚ feast on fillet of ostrich with a veld game pie and pumpkin gratin. For dessert? Traditional African ‘Melktert’ (a sweet pastry crust filled with a creamy custard) with roasted figs.

Meanwhile, JD will talk about the wine selection, carefully selecting those that compliment each item on the menu for you to enjoy.

After working as head winemaker at Boland Kelders, JD accepted a position at Franschhoek Cellar. His favourite varieties of wine to work with are Chenin Blanc and Shiraz as they can be so diverse.
