Why sing the blues if you can swing to Delheim’s Cheese Fondue & Jazz indulgences, when this popular Stellenbosch wine estate will sizzle with a melting pot of dip-licious delights, every Sunday from 3 July until 28 August.
These laidback lunchtime affairs invite guests to ensconce themselves in the cosy depths of the atmospheric ‘downstairs’ tasting cellar – snug with low ceilings and intimate tables – to sip on quality estate wines and savour the lingering aromas of melted cheese. This is all served up with the mellow sounds of a live jazz band that will keep the toes tapping until late in the afternoon.
“At Delheim we embrace the chill factor to the max this winter. When it is chilly outside we invite you to come and chill with us. These Sunday sessions are for friends and families who want to huddle around sizzling fondue pots for a taste of nostalgia and most importantly have a good time,” shares Charlotte Terblanche, Delheim’s Destination Manager.
Resident Chef Bruce von Pressentin swirls his cheese fondue to an authentic Swiss recipe that oozes deliciousness and combines Emmental, Gruyère and white wine for a hearty ‘blast from the past’. The fondue makes its way to your table with oven fresh bread dippers and vegetable crudités. Guests can also order starters from Delheim’s Garden Restaurant menu at an additional cost.
Delheim’s Cheese Fondue & Jazz Sundays start at 12h30 and cost R200 per person. A ticket includes a steaming glass of Glühwein to warm the cockles, a shared cheese fondue and the soulful, live music.
