The Winelands Restaurant
From the start, in May 1996 it has been our goal to delight each guest with a superb dining experience in our warm, relaxing venue set in the heart of the glorious HELDERBERG countryside. We use only fresh, often organic and where possible local ingredients to prepare our dishes.
They are inspired by SOUTH AFRICAN favourites and flavours from around the world. The fresh seasonal and inspirational menu changes almost every day, the main menu four times a year.
Founded by ex-Johannesburg restaurateur Ken Forrester, Devon Valley wine maker Martin Meinert and Chef Kathy Romer-Lee, the opening was preceded by lengthy debates in Ken's kitchen about the butternut colour of the interior and the name – Butternut? Wine plays a major role in the partners' lives and many of the local winegrowers are regular patrons.
