Shiraz & Charcuterie Tasting
at Terra del Capo in Franschhoek by Anthonij Rupert Wyne
The poetic pairing of Shiraz and Charcuterie has long been celebrated, and notably so at Anthonij Rupert Estate in Franschhoek, which also hosts the annual Shiraz & Charcuterie Festival in May each year.
Charcuterie’s salty, aromatic flavors and sweet, rich fattiness are naturally complemented by the typically bright acidity, bold fruitiness, and spiciness of outstanding Shiraz wines - a partnership which this tasting experience aims to highlight.

We were greeted with a hearty welcome and send to explore with some bubbly in hand . Soon we were perusing the beautiful restaurant and making our way to our tasting experience. The service was very good and we had a lovely morning. The ladies that attended to us were professional and friendly.
Absolutely fabulous from start to finish! So much so that we went on to have the cheese platters too. Service was so professional & knowledgeable and our lady was a trainee yet knew so much about the wines. Also the teamwork was excellent. We will be returning soon.
What an enjoyable afternoon and so worth it. We were transported to the wine farm in a Tram, the views were so picturesque. We were welcomed with a glass of champagne each and browsed around a beautifully decorated room, with lots of interesting things to view or buy. Once done we proceeded upstairs and I was welcomed by name and my party was escorted to very comfortable lounge chairs and served by a very professional, knowledgeable young lady, unfortunately I cannot remember her name. The wines and food tasters definitely complimented each other, which I would definitely recommend. We were treated like absolute royalty and I look forward to visiting again when I am in the Cape and Franschhoek again. Thank you for a well organised, memorable and beautiful experience.
The food and wine was presented beautifully. The wines paired very well with the meat. The presenter was knowledgeable and very friendly. We enjoyed every moment ! Will be back for more tastings
