Le Pommier Wine Estate is situated just outside Stellenbosch on the Helshoogte Pass towards Franschhoek. This family-friendly, wine farm boasts magnificent mountain views. It offers a restaurant, various accommodation options (including self-catering units), a wine tasting area (that we are busy revamping, set to re-open end of September 2020) but don’t fret we currently offer wine tasting in the restaurant for your convenience. A country-style vineyard barn function/ wedding venue was built in 2019, catering for guests between 80-150 pax. A smaller venue adjacent to the restaurant is available for smaller functions.
We are thrilled to announce that we have two brand new Food and Wine pairings! The pairings are available at our restaurant; but will also be available at our NEW wine tasting room, once we have completed our renovations. Pre-booking for this is advisable.
These hearty pairings both feature three of Le Pommier’s wines paired with either bite-size pizzas or the South African Food tidbits. The current Le Pommier wines on offer include a Sauvignon Blanc, dry Rosé, rich Red Blend (Cabernet Franc /Malbec) named Mac.
LE POMMIER SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020
Pale green with light straw hues on the colour. The nose is laden with gooseberry, tropical fruit with a hint of nettles. The palate shows lime, citrus and gooseberry fruit with a flinty, mineral finish.
LE POMMIER ROSÉ 2020
This salmon-pink wine has strawberry and gooseberry aromas on the nose with a rich and fruit-forward texture in the mouth. The acid is crisp and lingering, inviting you to have more and more.
LE POMMIER MAC 2019
This rich blend of Cabernet Franc and Malbec shows dark fruit characters of blackberry and mulberry on the nose. The wine has a firm but mouth-filling structure and velvety tannins on the palate with a long lingering aftertaste.
Le Pommier Jonathan’s Malbec 2019 is a limited release wine and is only available to enjoy in the restaurant. You can also purchase this wine directly from the wine tasting area or on our online wine shop. The same goes for our renamed Angle Peur Cabernet Franc 2019.
The Le Pommier Wine range is a product of the Banghoek Valley, notably one of the top wine regions in South Africa. The range is characterised by excellent quality wines that also appeal to your novice wine drinker. It’s your everyday wine range that you can unwind within the company of great friends for a relaxing evening or enjoy with a good meal.
The Pizza and Wine pairing consist of three Le Pommier wines paired with three pizzas. The pizzas in the pairing are also on our menu if you feel like wanting more. Pizzas are available daily from noon.
Le Pommier Sauvignon Blanc paired with Danish Feta, caramelised onions and olives (the SAUVY). Le Pommier Rosé with a tangy barbeque chicken & feta pizza (The SIMONSBERGER). Le Pommier MAC Cabernet Franc/Malbec Blend with the boerewors, pepperoni & bacon (the MENEER). We think, YUM!
The South African Food & Wine Pairing will bring you hearty warm flavours that are true to Le Pommier’s style. With the South African Food pairing, you can look forward to; Traditional Chicken Pie with Le Pommier Sauvignon Blanc. A South African Favourite Bobotie with Le Pommier Rosé. Beef Carpaccio, pickled Shimeji mushrooms, parmesan shavings with Le Pommier MAC Cabernet Franc/Malbec Blend.
