High up on the Franschhoek pass overlooking one of the most beautiful valleys in the world, is Haute Cabriére Cellar Restaurant. Built into the flank of one of the surrounding mountains, the restaurant has a magnificent view of this beautiful valley, where French Huguenot refugees settled in 1688. Proprietor Achim von Arnim and Cellarmaster Takuan von Arnims’ Pinot Noir vineyard is on the slopes immediately below, producing premiere MCC and classic cultivar wines available at cellar door prices in the restaurant.
Chefs Westley Muller and Nic van Wyk prepare classic dishes with modern sensibility. Much of the food served is from the valley – fresh Salmon trout bred and grown in the cold stream water that flows down the mountains, vegetables and herbs from the wine farm’s garden, fruit from the surrounding plum, peach and pear orchards, seasonal berries, goat’s milk cheese from Paarl and line fish delivered daily from the Indian and Atlantic Ocean.
The combination of fine wine and food, the elegance of the underground venue and the breath-taking views have in combination put Haute Cabriére Cellar Restaurant in all the top 10 listings in South Africa.
