A French Affair at Diemersdal Wine Estate

Ever since day one of my blogging adventure, I’ve been dying to share this absolute piece of wine and dining perfection with you.  I think almost by default Diemersdal secured a top spot on my wine list as this farm was where I did my first legal, official wine tasting and ever since that experience has been impossible to beat!

Diemersdal is located roughly 3km from central Durbanville and conveniently only 2km away from me! The premise of this wine estate is breath taking with their vintage buildings and lushes green lawn overlooking a beautiful lake and vineyards. Diemersdal will now continue to hold a very special and sentimental place in my heart as; this piece of gold is where I choose to celebrate my 21st birthday “A French Affair” just last weekend (7 September 2013).

Once I had chosen Diemersdal as my venue, I didn’t take much convincing to get 11 of my family members to take off work and travel all the way from PE to join us. Whenever anyone has come to visit us from out of town, the first item on the agenda is a wine tasting out on the lawn at “Diemers” and needless to say our wine rack at home is filled with Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc.

Their award winning white wine range consists of five different Sauvignon Blanc’s and two Chardonnays, and their Red wine list offers a much wider variety which includes wines such as Grenache, Pinotage Reserve and their Private collection which has won the awards: Top 100 SA wines and Best Red Blend in Durbanville.

Diemersdal is also renowned for their amazing restaurant and their unique menu, which is customized everyday. After dinning here a few times the stand out dishes were definitely their pork spring rolls and steak and chips with béarnaise sauce which was what I chose as the two dishes for my party.

Pork spring rolls to die for!

Diemersdal is the perfect setting to enjoy a special celebration with family and friends. It spoils you with a choice of stunning backdrops for photographs from the sun setting over the vineyards to vintage buildings and special indoor memories.

Cheers to 21 years!

On a sunny day the lawn is ideal for welcome drinks of chilled Diemersdal Sauv Blanc before moving inside into a cosy antic atmosphere in anticipation of a warm delicious meal.  Once your tummy is more than satisfied, this venue (when hired for private functions) allows you to kick of your shoes and let your hair down and dance the night away.

I can without a doubt guarantee you that this wine farm will live up to any expectation. Whether it’s pouring with rain or sunny, Diemersdal is sure to provide your family of all ages with a flawless experience of the best wine in Durbanville and the most amazing food to ever hit your taste buds!
