Delight Your Senses

The pairing of good food and great wine takes centre stage at Balata Restaurant at The Fairway Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort. These elegant, exclusive monthly events will give guests the opportunity to learn about the history of the different wine estates, while providing rare insight into the production processes of some of South Africa’s finest wines.

Commenting on the wine dinners, Fairway Hotels General Manager, Christopher Trimble said: “Each wine dinner offers a completely unique experience to our guests: from the wines on offer to the paired menu, to the winemaker hosting the event. When designing the calendar, we wanted the evenings to be about the personalities of the hosts and the craftsmanship of the wine estates.
