Babylonstoren Workshops

Babylonstoren holds regular workshops as they see it as an ideal opportunity to share what they’ve learned – not only about their garden but about gardening in general. They also regularly invite guests who are experts in their fields to host these workshops in collaboration with their gardening team. Their workshops tend to be small, with no more than 20 people per group. They’re also quite hands-on so you will get to try out the skills, technique or discipline that they’re learning about.

Fairview’s Famous Goatshed Dinners

Goatshed Extraño Spanish Evening

28 September 2018

19:00 – 22:00

There is a stranger (extraño in Spanish) in the Cape’s vineyards, named Tempranillo. Originally from Spain, Tempranillo now grows in local soils and produces grapes of exceptional quality. We’ve carefully integrated fellow Spaniards Grenache and Carignan – who add spice, fruit and freshness – to help temper this slightly rustic grape variety’s temperamental streak.

Since its release, this wine has been causing waves throughout our Tasting Room, becoming a firm best-seller thanks to its consistent taste, beautiful label and value-for-money. In fact, Extraño was one of our most awarded wines for 2017, receiving a 4.5 star Platter rating, a 2017 National Wine Challenge Top 100 award, and a 90 point score at the Winemag Signature Red Blend Report Awards 2017!

For our final Goatshed Dinner for 2018, we decided to pair a winning wine with a winning cuisine combination. Chef SJ Nel and the Goatshed team carefully curated a menu that will please all palates, while harking back to Catalan-inspired flavours. The event also marks the end of winter, and welcomes in a change of season for warmer weather and later sunsets. Come celebrate – and don’t forget your castanets!

Here is a breakdown of the menu you can expect to enjoy on the evening:

Tapas

Selection of breads, spicy dips & Salami

Paprika chicken Taco cups

Meatballs in Chorizo & tomato sauce

Mushroom Empanadas

Starter

Roasted Linefish & white bean soup

Main Course

Braised beef, potato cake & traditional Pisto

Dessert
