A Perfect Plett Wine & Food Pairing

Updated: Dec 22, 2021

Thanks to everyone that joined our first ever Plett pairing experience!

Hosted in partnership with LearntoSurf Plett & Bitou Vineyards!


We enjoyed an afternoon of delightful food and wine with platters from local caterer & private chef Anna Ridgewell.



Tasting Menu:

4 Bitou wines paired with 4 thoughtfully selected platters


Pairing 1: Plett’s Perfect Pairing - A delectable 2017 Sauvignon Blanc MCC Brut with fresh oysters, strawberries, crudités & sundried tomato hummus.


Pairing 2: A crisp 2021 Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon blend with wonderful fruity aromas & a fresh lime finish, paired with butternut feta frittata and pineapple & parma ham sticks.



Pairing 3: 2020 Sauv Blanc Sassy- an off-dry white wine with pleasing tropical flavours, paired with corn & cheese samosas & caramelized onion & goat’s cheese tartlets.


Pairing 4: 2020 Malbec with stunning floral notes & a rich mulberry/plum finish, paired with heavenly double chocolate brownies & date balls.



Many thanks to Tanya, the Tasting Manager, and Ron Leacy, the Irish owner, for a fantastic and informative, personal experience at Bitou Vineyards; we look forward to having many more!



We look forward to our next collaboration with another stunning Cape Winery on our next special tour day!



Exciting Developments at Bitou Vineyards!
