Yeah, I’m just not that into wine that I would want to go to a bunch of wine farms to taste wine – but when you add food or a snack to the equation…I’m in!
On my recent trip to Cape Town to visit my BFF we decided that we wanted to find the most amazing food and wine pairings to try – because after a year in Cape Town, my BFF had forgotten the first rule of drinking… to eat. Just an FYI, we had a designated driver who didn’t partake.

Braaibroodjies and Wine Pairing at Middelvlei
This was the most interesting pairing on paper and even more delicious on the tongue. I grew up with braaibroodjies on the fire with every braai so this was my number 1 food and wine pairing to try.
We watched them roast our food on a fire and was kept company by the big black dog in front of the fire. The food and wine pairings were spot on and I easily could’ve stayed for more!
Macaron and Wine Pairing at Blaauwklippen
This was an experience! The day before there was a wedding at xxx and we were treated to a wonderland of flowers hanging from the roof.
The decadent macarons were perfectly complimented by their wine pairings. It was a feast for the eyes and the tongue.
Pizza and Wine Pairing at Brennaisance
Anyone who says that money cannot buy happiness has clearly never spent their money on pizza.Andrew W.K.
This was our lunch and it was amazing. The last red wine was a bit heavy for me, but it went well with the pizza it was paired with. This was R200 per person – but well worth it!
Next time you venture down to the Cape Winelands (or Stellenbosch) hit up these wine farms and do a food and wine pairing. I’m a wine heathen, but you can trust me on this.
This looks like a great way to spend the day. I miss SA sooo much!
It is the best country… even with no lights
ooooooooooooh! How interesting. I have never heard of this 🤷♂️
It is an amazing experience 🙂
Great suggestions. I always have a hard time figuring out which wine to pair with which food.
I’m a wine hooligan – any wine, any food and if the wine is too heavy… sprite(gasp)
This is a great guide! Especially because this is all I feel like doing right now is eating and drinking wine. Tis the season!
All I need to make this happen is my BFf!
It doesn’t get much better than pizza and wine! Looks delicious 🙂
You telling me ♥️
Enjoyed reading!! I like wine and food so…I do want to do more taste testing, I’m not a big fan of dry wines!!
I’m not a fan of reds 🙂
MMM always love a good wine pairing!
I never say no to snacks 🙂
Pizza and Wine seems a good pairing. I would love to try one day. Thank you for the share.
I love macrons but paring it with wine sounds delicious. I will try next time.
It was a really yummy pairing 🙂
I love trying out wine and I absolutely love wine and dessert!
The combination of Macaron and wine sure sounds lovely!
I would never have thought to do a pairing like this…
Oooohh lovely suggestions! Definitely going to have a go at these. Thank you!
I’ve never gotten into pairing certain foods with certain wines. I really need to give it a try. The bottle I’m currently working on is a 2018 Sauvignon Blanc with bright tropical aromas.
I’m a whatever is served I’ll eat/drink together 🙂 I’m a hooligan
Never tried Pizza and wine! This combination looks interesting 😀
