CAPE TOWN FYNBOS EXPERIENCE®
The Cape Town Fynbos Experience® is an exploration of the unique culinary flavours, traditional uses and intangible essence of South Africa’s celebrated Fynbos in the form of a guided tasting with botanical heritage advocate Giselle Courtney.
Learn to pair eleven of South Africa's indigenous culinary flavours with everyday meals and make accompanying culinary infusions, tinctures and concoctions and integrate the health boosting properties of Fynbos into a contemporary lifestyle.
Our Fynbos farm is on the slopes of the historic Hawequas Mountains overlooking the scenic Wellington wine valley. The Tasting Room is integrated into the modern farmhouse and aromatic tea infusions, cordials, vinaigrettes, infused salts, digestives and edible botanicals stand ready for a cascading tasting accompanied by a creative visual presentation exploring the notion of intangible heritage.
"Walking into the tasting room, one is hit by the fragrance of fresh fynbos - Rhino bush, Cancer bush, Buchu and Snow bush line the centre of the tasting table. Glass beakers filled with tea infusions such as local rooibos and honeybush, petri dishes topped with fresh stalks of Spekboom and fynbos salts are all artfully arranged at individual place settings." Condé Nast HOUSE&GARDEN - April 2019.
