Summer is officially here in the Mother City, bringing with it fun-filled days that are best spent outdoors. It’s also the perfect time to head down to Nederburg to enjoy their sunset stoep sessions at their newly revamped restaurant, The Manor.

Designed to help you wind down and get in the mood for the weekend, the weekly Summer Sunset Stoep Sessions start at 3.30pm and runs until 6pm every Friday from October 16 until the end of February (except on December 25, 2020 and January 1, 2021).

Savour some of Nederburg’s fine wines, including its very impressive Cap Classique, and a range of refreshing wine cocktails whilst watching the sun set over the majestic mountains and lush vineyards to the soundtrack of the live music of Ruan Grobbelaar (with Craig Vee filling in on occasion).

Of course, your day is not complete without some delicious food. Bump up the experience with a sharing plate for two, featuring cheesy patatas bravas; croquettes with chipotle, jalapeño and cheese; and buttermilk chicken wings with slaw. Or go for a generous serving of nachos, complete with guacamole, cream cheese and spicy salsa.

Boards, laden with local cheeses and charcuterie are also available, as are the nibble plates with marinated olives, roasted nuts and beef biltong; and wild mushroom arancini served with pea purée and a Parmesan wafer.

Adults and children alike will have a ball at Nederburg’s stoep sessions. A play area is available in the garden for the little ones, and adults can also enjoy some lawn games.

Nederburg requires all guests to wear a mask, and strict COVID-19 hygiene and safety measures are in place.

Arriving guests will be greeted at the door and a member of Nederburg’s friendly staff will use a handheld contactless device to take their temperature. Right of admission is reserved. Nederburg supports the responsible consumption of alcohol.
