A Proudly Stellenbosch Lot
The Lot Info
The Lot Summary
Kanonkop Estate is recognised as a South African equivalent of a Premier Cru or First Growth. A fourth generation family-owned estate, Kanonkop Estate is situated on the lower slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, which is commonly known as the ‘red wine bowl’ of South Africa. This area has earned a reputation, both at home and abroad, for producing the best red wines in the country. The estate is situated on 125 hectares, of which 100 are planted to vines. Besides the solid foundation on which the estate’s winemaking principles are based, it is also blessed with the ideal soils, terrain and climate, creating perfect conditions for growing quality grapes. The cellar is currently led by Abrie Beeslaar, who joined the team in 2002, and took over the reins from Beyers Truter in 2004.
From fine wining to epic dining with a dinner for the four guests at Eike hosted by celebrity chef Bertus Basson and a member of the Kanonkop team. The dinner will be paired with the estate’s wine.
Eike is nestled in an old historic building in the famous Dorp Street of Stellenbosch. Stellenbosch is also known as ‘Die Eikestad’, which translates to ‘The Oak City’. Eike celebrates traditional South-African cooking to it fullest by drawing inspiration from nostalgic food memories.
The two couples will continue to soak up that special Stellenbosch ambience, with beautifully appointed accommodation for the weekend.
