Fine wine and decadent dining with Nederburg at The Table Bay Hotel
Calling all foodies and wine connoisseurs… Nederburg, Platter’s By Diners Club South African Wine Guide’s 2017 Winery of the Year, will be offering a very rare sampling of its four Platter’s 2017 five star wines, as rated by the authoritative guide’s panel of judges.
The culinary showcase is set to take guests on a sensory journey of discovery, at Camissa Brasserie at Cape Town’s luxurious The Table Bay Hotel, situated at the iconic V&A Waterfront, on 29 June.
The event will be hosted by Jean-Pierre Rossouw, the publisher of the Platter’s guide, together with Nederburg’s white-wine maker, Natasha Boks, and renowned celebrity chef, Pete Goffe-Wood of MasterChef South Africa, as MC.
This special dinner marks the start of a series of exclusive wine and food pairing evenings at The Table Bay, in collaboration with the Platter’s guide. The awe-inspired menu for the first dinner with Nederburg was creatively devised by The Table Bay’s Executive Chef, Jocelyn Myers-Adams to complement the unique taste profile of each individual Nederburg wine.
Myers-Adams explains, “Our first Platter’s pairing dinner with Nederburg is indeed a meeting of minds in celebration of the exquisite interplay between food and wine. We are delighted to partner with South Africa’s finest winery for this event, which will feature some of Nederburg’s Private Bin wines, rated five stars by Platter’s in its 2017 edition. These are exclusively available for purchase by registered buyers at the annual Nederburg Auction, making it a most auspicious and rare occasion.”
Now in its 43rd year, the prestigious Nederburg Auction has been held annually since 1975 and is one of the most important fixtures on the South Africa wine calendar.
The award-winning wines that guests will enjoy with Myers-Adams’ spectacularly orchestrated dinner menu are:
- Nederburg Cuvée Brut, served with fresh oysters on arrival
- Nederburg Private Bin D234 Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (Platter’s 2017 five-star wine) paired with fish carpaccio as a starter

She explains that various scents and flavours will be delivered through a variety of culinary methods – so expect an all-encompassing sensory experience with interesting mists, powders, foams, gels and smokes.
