Gabriëlskloof, the wine and olive estate outside Botriver, is celebrating local cuisine this September, culminating in a Long Table Heritage Braai Feast on 24 September.
Throughout September the Tasting Lounge will showcase homegrown flavours with Mzansi Tapas Taster platters featuring familiar bites with a local twist, paired with four estate wines. Think Snoek ‘n Patat croquettes with amasi foam and chakalaka, Bobotie poppers, Tangy Pickled Fish Tacos, and Biltong in Red Wine. They cost R250 per couple and booking is essential.
Gabriëlskloof’s Mzansi Tapas Taster will also be available as small plate starters or sides to a main meal at their resident restaurant during Heritage Month.
The month-long food and wine celebration will build up to a braai feast on National Heritage Day (24 September). A single, continuous table will line the shaded veranda that surrounds the courtyard – the day’s theatre of braai, starring Executive Chef Frans Groenewald.
You can look forward to seasonal fare including meat on the spit, snoek and mussels on the coals, garlic rolls, roosterkoek, pap-en-sous and of course, all the tasty trimmings that go with a good old South African braai. End it all on a sweet note with treats like melktert and malva pudding.

“Gabriëlskloof is proudly South African, which is why we’re excited to share our passion and pleasures with fellow South Africans around the fire as we celebrate our cultural heritage and diversity. We’ve laid on some brilliant food and wine for the occasion and have made it absolutely family friendly,” shares Frans.
Local musician Gian Groen will be performing live at the event, adding to the festive atmosphere.
