Father’s day – hey, kids, are you listening?

I wonder if it is appropriate to use this forum to drop a gentle hint to my kids. So, if you are reading, Ali and Jeff, this is where I would like to go on Father’s day. No, you don’t have to use your pocket money, I will pay…but I do look forward to your company;)


As the saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and dads are no exception. Make this Father’s Day a memorable occasion and gather family and friends for a feast fit for a king at The Eatery at Durbanville Hills Wines.

There’s much to look forward to. Ease into a buffet-lunch with a delicious glass of Durbanville Hills Bastion on arrival, matched with a biltong and blue cheese soup or tomato, olive and basil tart. For the main course choose from hearty garlic and rosemary leg of lamb, short ribs braised in red wine and chicken roasted with red onions and thyme. Side dishes include creamy spinach and feta potato bake, Spanish wild rice and roasted seasonal vegetables. End the afternoon on a sinful note by indulging in brandy tart or crème brûlée.

Durbanville Hills’ wines will be on sale.
