Best known for its Pierre Jourdan sparkling wines — known locally as Cap Classique, to get around Champagne naming rights. Cabrière restaurant offers fine dining inside of a mountain. The tables fill an upper level of the cellar, carved out of the Franschhoek Mountain. But no worries about claustrophobia: vaulted ceilings soar overhead, while the wine cellar stretches out on a level far below.
This is one of the few South African cultivators of pinot noir, which is the focus of a pairing menu in the winter months. In a country that loves meat, Haute caters to vegetarians with a tasting menu every bit as good as its carnivore counterpart.
