  7. Food and Wine Pairing Guide

With South Africa’s new Level 4 lockdown restrictions, many of us are enjoying wine from the comfort of our homes. We really love pairing our wines with cheese, which we do at one of the wine estates on our tours. In particular, we love cheddar, Brie and Chevin. These all pair with a variety of reds and white wines. As a guide, you can pair the following wines with the following cheeses:

Food and Wine Pairing Guide

Cheddar & Merlot

Feta & Sauvignon Blanc

Brie & Cab Sav

Chevin & Chardonnay

Blue Cheese & Shiraz

You can also add some grapes, berries, fig preserve and crackers to your cheese plate to make it more interesting and add variety. A food and wine pairing guide can be as basic or lavish as you feel like doing it. Note that we also do a chocolate and wine pairing on our wine tours in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Franchhoek and will be sharing that food and wine pairing guide in our next post!

The wine tour with this company was so fun! I was a solo guest but had a lot of fun with the group. Would definitely recommend!

This was my third tour with Wine flies, and I can safely say again it’s one of the best tours I’ve taken. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made the experience fun from start to finish. You could tell that a lot of time and care was taken in choosing the wine estates that we visited, each one was unique in its own way with truly excellent wine. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch with delicious local food, it was great to experience South African cuisine and of such high quality. The whole feel of the trip was relaxed and you couldn’t help but feel very lucky to be in such beautiful wine lands. The food pairings were also perfectly put together. A special mention to Lola and Alex who were incredibly warm and welcoming hosts on their estate at Mitres Edge. You could tell how much passion they have for producing fine wine and the choice of cheese paired with their wines will live in my memory for a long time to come. I have, and will continue to recommend Wine Flies to anybody I know thinking of travelling to Cape Town. Following the wine tour we took a sunset champagne cruise from the V&A waterfront, in and around Table Bay this was a special and memorable experience and afforded us a chance to get a beautiful view of Table Mountain at sunset from the water.

We were a family group of 8 doing the Fransshoek and Stellenboesh tour. Natalie our booking contact offered us a private tour for us all which was great. Our guide Julian was cheerful and good fun. He gave us a small tour of stellenboesh and Franschoek before and after the vineyard visits. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely use Wine Flies again. Thank you for a great day. Now to try and get all of our wine home on the plane! 😊

Really phenomenal experience with Wine Flies. The whole experience felt very curated (small and large wineries) and well thought out. Julian our guide was truly the highlight - he was interested, interesting, patient, knowledgeable and fun. Overall the experience was great value for money considering the professionalism, facilities, abundant wine tasting and cheese/meat/chocolate pairings & excellent lunch.

Peter was a wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable tour guide. We had a fantastic day visiting some of the many Stellenbosch wineries with Wine Flies Wine Tours. Thank you for such an incredible experience.

I've tried Wine Flies twice, and on both wine tours I had fantastic time. Today, I was with them at the Stellenbosch tour and Julian was great guide, insightful and fun! The driving was great too, careful and comfortable. I liked the mix of bigger and boutique estates in the program. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town!
