Anthonij Rupert Wyne is getting ready to amaze diners with an unforgettable culinary experience that has been designed to highlight the artful preparation and dining of truffles.
Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001, the farm was eventually taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003 and the brand named after him.
It was Johann Rupert who constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, catapulting the farm into a prestigious wine estate which spawned the beginnings of what is now a sprawling enterprise.
Truffle inspired lunch and dinner functions
Since 2019 culinary enthusiasts have been treated to a host of wonderful dining and educational opportunities all specially designed to best showcase the ‘black gold’ that are truffles.
With the truffle season limited to just two months in our South African climate, there is no better time than to experience these delicacies at their freshest and finest.
This year there will be regular lunch time dining opportunities every week during the months of June and July as well as several hosted functions where guests can meet the truffle hunter and learn more about South Africa’s emerging truffle cultivation.
All dining experiences feature four courses designed to best showcase truffles and are paired with wines from their acclaimed Cape of Good Hope wine range.
This special occasion is only available on specific dates, and coincides with the truffle season. Lunch experiences will take place on 26 June and 17 July, and dinner experiences will take place on 10 June, 2 July and 8 July 2022. Each event will last approximately four hours.
This is an adults-only function; unfortuantely no children under the age of 18 will be allowed.
Pescatarian and vegetarian dietary requirements can gladly be accommodated, but should be arranged at least seven days prior to the dining date.
What’s on the menu?
The dining experience will begin with Artisan Bread Selection with estate produced Black Perigord truffle butter.
Diners will then move on to a starter meal of Seared Prawn, Grilled Asparagus and Truffle Caviar paired with a Cape of Good Hope Altima Sauvignon Blanc.
For mains, there are two meals to choose from: choose between Slow Braised Estate Raised Black Angus Beef Brisket or Fresh Doppio ’00’ Truffle Tagliagtelle, and enjoy them with a Cape of Good Hope Serruria Chardonnay or Cape of Good Hope Sneeuwkrans Pinot Noir
Diners will then be treated to a light palate cleanser titled ‘Expressions of Raspberry’.
For dessert, expect a sweet Amaretti Crumble Valrhona Chocolate Bomb.
The dining experience will conclude with a Sable Choux “Truffle”.
The truffle season has begun and there is no better opportunity to experience these delicacies at their freshest and most flavourful than with these truffle inspired events.
