Cape fynbos & wine pairing with bites at Bartinney Wines

Sustainability superheroes and makers of top-notch tipples, Bartinney Wines offers a chance to experience how the unique flavours of their farm’s fynbos are a match made in heaven with their boutique wines. The folks at Bartinney are as serious about producing top boutique wines as they are about championing biodiversity and sustainable farming.

  • Sensorial experience with freshly picked fynbos incorporating touch, smell, sight and taste
  • Taste 3 different varieties of Bartinney wines
  • Learn about the Cape floral kingdom first-hand

Overview

The folks at Bartinney are as serious about producing top boutique wines as they are about championing biodiversity and sustainable farming on the estate perched on Botmaskop in Stellenbosch. So much so that they replaced all alien vegetation growing on the farm with indigenous flora like Cape fynbos.

To show visitors first-hand how sustaining the environment plays a huge role in winemaking, they offer a truly unique fynbos and wine pairing in their Tasting Shed, overlooking the farm’s vineyards and the Banhoek Valley beyond.

The experience starts with a short talk about Bartinney’s sustainable farming practises and how the fynbos growing around the vineyards ultimately affect the taste of the fruit growing on the vines. And then you’ll get to taste for yourself. Three of Bartinney’s wines will each be paired with a specific fynbos species – Sauvignon Blanc with Pelargonium Citronellum, Chardonnay with Eriocephalus africanus, and Cabernet Sauvignon with Agathosma Ovata – to illustrate how the unique flavour profiles of each plant can be picked up in the different varietals.

The wines will also be accompanied by an ever-evolving range of South African-style canapés: think snoek frikkadels infused with the lemon-scented pelargonium, or wild rosemary springbok spanakopita with olive marmalade. It’s an experience that’s sure to give you a whole new outlook on the relationship between nature and winemaking.
