It’s summertime in the Cape Winelands, and as the days get longer and warmer, we invite you to linger on our lawns with a glass of Simonsig in your hand. We have a number of events and activities planned over the next two months, from Jazz on the Lawn and our monthly First Fizzday to Carols by Candlelight and an end of year bash to send the year out in style. Read more below, and do come and join us.
- Awesome Specials
From Monday to Sunday, Cuvée is offering great deals and warm farm hospitality. Try our farmhouse breakfast and glass of Kaapse Vonkel Rosé for R100 or join us on Wednesday evenings for a burger and we’ll add a glass of Pinotage for free. On Thursday evenings we have our Butcher’s Cut of the Day and a glass of Labyrinth Cabernet Sauvignon for R160 or tuck into six oysters for R120 and we’ll add a complimentary glass of bubbly from Fridays to Sundays only. If you feel like a bit of a splurge we will also be serving a 2 course food and wine pairing dinner for R395 and a 3 course food and wine pairing dinner for R495. Promotions are valid from 1 November to 31 December 2018. Contact us on 021 888 4932 or email us at email@example.com to make a booking or for more information.
- Wine tasting
Visit the home of the original MCC. Join our complimentary cellar tour from Monday to Saturday at 11am and try your hand at a sabrage or request to degorge your own bottle of MCC. Then move on to taste any combination of 6 wines from our Method Cap Classique, Malan Family Selection, Cultivar Range or Dessert wine offerings at just R60 per person. We also have generous cheese boards to share, or fresh west coast oysters just in time for summer. Top it all off with a tasting of our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, The Garland, produced from single-vineyard grapes grown on the slopes of Simonsberg at R80 per person. Don’t forget to purchase a few bottles to enjoy at home and ask about signing up to our wine club.

- First Fizzday
Join us on the first Thursday of every month as we open our farm to the public for a sunset-celebration of Cap Classique with live music, delicious wines and an array of delectable festival foods from Cuvée. Wine and food sales start at 17h30 and the bar closes at 20h30. Entrance is free, and R30 gets you a wine glass. Regrettably no outside food or wine allowed. Remember to bring your picnic chairs and blankets!
The first First Fizzday takes place on 4 October 2018, with the final one of this season on 4 April 2019. Please note that First Fizzday in January 2019 will take place on 10 January and not 3 January.

It’s time to celebrate summer at Simonsig with the whole family! On Saturday 1 and 15 December, from 11H00 to 17H30 we invite you to unwind under the trees with a glass or two of our delicious wines, while the kids get out of the house and take in some fresh farm air. Pick your spot on the lawn and enjoy the live music, then take your pick of yummy eats from the Cuvee food station or stock up on some local fresh produce at our mini farm stall. R30 gets you a wine glass and entrance is free. Contact us on 021 888 4932 or email us at email@example.com to make a booking or for more information.

We’re ending the year off on a high note with a pre-New Year’s celebration under the stars. Take a break from the city bustle and enjoy the breath-taking views of the Simonsig vineyards, as well as a magical Simonsberg sunset, while we pull out all the stops and welcome you to join us on Saturday, 29 December for a festive 4 course wine pairing dinner in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Tickets cost R650 pp and includes the food and wine pairing, as well as a small goodie bag. Bookings are essential as space is limited.

7. Kids’ Movie Nights
At last – a movie night for the kids, that parents can enjoy too. If you’re tired of junk food, drive-through and noisy ‘family’ restaurants, then join us for an elegant dinner at Cuvée restaurant, while your kids are entertained nearby.
Just in time for the summer vacation, we now offer children a safe, supervised play area, where they can watch the latest Netflix movies, while sharing a pizza with friends. Parents and adults can then enjoy a quiet glass of wine and a leisurely dinner at Cuvée restaurant, knowing that the kids are supervised and happy. Grown-ups are encouraged to book a table, but walk-ins are also welcome. So escape the hassle of home, and bring the whole family for a fun evening out.
The cost is R100 per child and includes a food buffet station with pizza, hot dogs, sweets, pop-corn ice cream and the latest Netflix movie! Contact Cuvée restaurant at 021 888 4932 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to book your table.
