Although travelling is tricky during the Covid-19 crisis, transport your imagination to Middelvlei Wines in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands. It’s a small, dynamic farm which has been owned and run by the Momberg family since 1919.

Potbrood and braaibroodjies

This is where you also get to indulge in a Boerebraai barbecue experience, making this a good excuse to safely venture outdoors post lockdown.

Enticing aromas of the homemade potbrood and braaibroodjies give you a sneak peek of what lies ahead for your foodie experience, whilst Ben Momberg’s homemade pâté and Ouma Annie’s pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Boerebraai experience in a league of their own.

The team at Middelvlei can’t wait to welcome visitors back to the farm, and while everyone is still safely in the confines of their homes, they thought it best to challenge aspirant chefs to showcase their interpretation of a braaibroodjie with a Braaibroodjie Challenge.

Simply share your photos of your lockdown braai with a pic of your braaibroodjie and share what ingredient you put on your sandwich. Post to your relevant social media platform, tagging Middelvlei Wines and include #braaibroodjiechallenge. Also say why it deserves to be included on the venue’s menu.

The winner will receive a Braaibroodjie and wine pairing for two – post lockdown.

Upper reaches of the Devon Valley

As you enter the gates leading to the Middelvlei Wines farm, you are met by a vineyard-strewn amphitheatre which overlooks the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of the Devon Valley.

Make the most of the perfect Cape weather and sit outside on the sprawling verandah whilst admiring the views. On colder days the cozy fireplace inside will add extra warmth. The range of wines perfectly complement what can only be described as hearty South African comfort food.

The selection of wines includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and a Pinotage.
