Now this is an absolute treat!

What a brilliant idea it was to spend a Saturday morning at this lovely estate on a sunny winter’s day, enjoying their pancake and wine pairing with friends!

When entering the magnificent Manor House, we were welcomed by the hostesses and offered a glass of bubbly.

While waiting for our table we explored the house and surroundings.

Everyone was seated in a cosy room with the fireplace crackling while the wine and pancakes were served. The hostess explained how the pairing work and then it was time for our taste buds to have a feast as we enjoyed the delicious pancakes, served with 5 different wines that each compliments the specific pancake it was paired with. What a mouth-watering experience!

To start off we enjoyed a Spicy Thai Green Curry pancake paired with a crisp Uitkyk Chenin Blanc. We ended the pairing with a dark chocolate ganache and berry compote filled pancake accompanied by a divine Uitkyk Carlonet.

Should you feel like spending a few more minutes at this lovely Estate, make your way to the tasting room where you will be welcomed with smiles and be able to sample another 5 wines.

This is an experience you do not want to miss, so be sure to book as they only have 4 dates left this winter!!
