The Only Place To Enjoy A Traditional Braai In The Cape Winelands


There is no denying that a braai sits at the heart of South African culture. It’s a must for any visitor. Of course, no braai is complete without a selection of fine local wines and a braaibroodjie.

The word ‘braai’ is actually Afrikaans, deriving from the Dutch word for roast and is primarily an occasion for friends and family to come together in celebration.
