ON THE TOPIC OF SUMMER
It is time to introduce our sumptuous new summer menu and now that we are open
7 days a week again you will have a lot more time to taste your way through it!

Some of my favourites include the Beetroot & Prosciutto starter, a fantastic match for our
Vineyard Selection Shiraz and my favourites among the main course options include Salmon
& Kingklip cakes, Asian seared tuna and the smoked port terrine. Due to popular demand we
kept the Lamb bobotie on the menu, some favourites cannot be replaced! The Rhubarb
and pear Tart Tatin is a must try and the iced strawberry & lemon gâteau with Cointreau
infusion will round off your meal perfectly.

BLAAUWKLIPPEN FAMILY MARKET
We enjoyed some sunny days with a great buzz at the market. Some of the traders who hibernate during the winter are back, so come and take a peek at what is new and exciting.
HARLEY DAVIDSON TYGERBERG

will join us on the 3rd of November with a couple of demo bikes. They will even be doing a few demo rides for those of you looking to spoil yourself with this beautiful piece of
machinery. Newton Theron will be performing live on
the day.

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND

Harry Curtis will be our live musician on the 10th of November. For those unfamiliar with Harry, he sings a variety of hits from 'yester year' from artists to the likes of Frank Sinatra and many more. We have noticed young and old enjoying his voice and of course, his showmanship!

VINEYARD DOGGY WALK

The 17th of November will be the monthly Vineyard Doggy Walk in aid of Helderberg Animal Welfare Society. We booked a special performer for the day: Carla Conradie. Carla is a trained musician who has completed three years studying at COPA (Campus of Performing Arts), Cape Town. Heads turn when they see this beautiful guitarist/singer song-writer take the stage.
