by | Dec 13, 2021 | Article, News

After the success of its EATS fine dining experience — featuring Michelin-star chef Jürgen Schneider from Germany — Springfontein Wine Estate is at it again! The Cape South Coast winery will launch a new pop-up restaurant with two-Michelin-star chef Edwin Vinke, open from January to March 2022.

The grand opening (expected 15 January) will showcase gastronomic highlights with Dutch chefs Chef Edwin Vinke and son Tom, from the acclaimed two-Michelin-star De Kromme Watergang, located at the tidal shore of the Westerschelde in The Netherlands.

This exclusive collaboration explores the ways in which terroir-driven wines and food transcend cultures to pair and reveal what mother nature gives.

Springfontein founder and CEO Dr Johst Weber says, “Good wine and food is a most hospitable way of connecting with like-minded people. We love Edwin’s food and admire his down-to- earth culinary philosophy which matches with our winemaking principles”.

Weber says he founded the estate in 1994 to create a “free-spirited place that involved family and friends around wine as a unifying product that offers a combination of nature and human craftsmanship”.

Together with winemaker Tariro Masayiti, the mission is to best reflect Springfontein’s terroir on a unique parcel of limestone soil, located in Walker Bay, close to the ocean. Under the monopole appellation Springfontein Rim, the estate is meanwhile regarded as one of South Africa’s most exclusive experiences, producing award-winning organic wines.
