Goatshed Homtini Italian Dinner at Fairview Wine and Cheese

24 May 2019 l 18h30 – 22h00

Siamo tornati signore e signori!

The annual Goatshed Dinners return on the 24th of May with the Homtini Italian Dinner!

A four-course menu brimming with flavours from all corners of the Boot, expertly constructed by Goatshed Chef SJ Nel. If that’s not enough, between courses you’ll be transported to the city of Naples, the birthplace of pizza, by trying your hand at being a real pizzaiolo at our wood-fired pizza oven station!

Homtini translates as a ‘difficult passage’ in the long-forgotten Khoi language. The Homtini pass, near Knysna, winds its way through indigenous forests. This was once the home of our winemaker Anthony de Jager’s Italian ancestors, the Rabbolinis, who were silk farmers from Northern Italy. They immigrated to South Africa under the misconception that mulberry trees grew in abundance. On arrival, they discovered that no mulberry trees existed, but through tenacity and hard work, they tamed the land and ultimately prospered in other trades, including wine making.

The wine is a Tuscan-style blend of Italian variety Sangiovese, integrated with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The wine is crafted to go perfectly with Italian-style dishes, such as tomato-based sauces, breads and cheese.



Selection of cured meats (Mortadella, Salami, Coppa)
