When the mercury drops and the rain clouds gather, the soup ladle and the wine glass are the best of friends. That’s why, from 1 June until 31 August 2019, visitors to Spier’s cosy Tasting Room can enjoy three hearty vegetarian soups paired with wine and served with an assortment of focaccia bread. The new winter tasting features Seaward wines, Spier’s brand-new, NWC Double Gold Award-winning range of single varietals inspired by the unique terroir of the Cape’s coastal regions.
Take a seat by the blazing fire and tuck into our tasty selection of wine and winter soups – starting with a cauliflower and smoked cheese soup paired with Spier Creative Block, a crisp white blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Next, there’s a carrot soup topped with goats cheese and cashew dukkah, paired with the lightly-wooded Spier Seaward Chardonnay. This is followed by a spicy roast tomato and basil soup paired with the richly suave Spier Seaward Shiraz. Lastly, enjoy a vegan brownie with a glass of the wonderfully warming Spier Cape Vintage Selection.
The Spier Warm Winter Vegetarian Tasting costs just R120 per person, and is vegetarian-friendly. Enjoy it at the Spier Tasting Room, which is open from 09:00 – 16:30, Monday to Saturday, and 11:00 – 17:00 on Sundays. Contact +27 (21) 8091984 for more information or visit www.spier.co.za
