Paarl estate Avondale has become well known for its 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.
Now you can experience that the estate has to offer with their Field to Feast Luncheon, an evolution of the popular ‘biodynamic lunches’ held on Avondale in the past.
The next event takes place on 26 November. Feast days will begin with a tour of the property by farm-chic tractor-trailer where you’ll also learn about the biodynamic principles underpinning the growth of Avondale.
Check out the farm’s biodynamic vegetable gardens and quirky Egg-mobile that supplies the kitchen with pasture-reared eggs, and learn more about the hyper-local sustainably-sourced produce behind the menu at FABER.
After the tour, you’ll will be welcomed back at FABER with a glass of Avondale’s award-winning Armilla Méthode Cap Classique before settling in for a leisurely farm feast. Each of the three courses will be paired with a glass of Avondale wine.
The menu will be informed entirely by the seasons, and what’s fresh from the gardens. That could mean a whole roast duck with trimmings in autumn, prime cuts on the bone in winter, or succulent lamb with the onset of spring. Expect the menu to be a constant work-in-progress, delighting and surprising guests on the day.
