The R62 Deli “Proe die Klein Karoo!…”

To add to the wine experience, Joubert-Tradauw boasts the much-loved R62 Deli Alfresco, which specialises in Klein Karoo tapas.

Once a humble, tin-roofed dwelling, the Deli has been transformed into a Mediterranean-style farm kitchen with rustic décor and an inside fireplace. Guests can dine outdoors, weather permitting, in true al fresco style under the vine-covered veranda (“afdak”), overlooking the farm, the majestic Tradouw Valley and the Langeberge.

The R62 Deli is renowned for its platters, which include Klein Karoo tapas comprising fruit from the farms such as fresh figs, nectarines, Kakamas peaches, plums and pears served with cranberries, nuts, sunflower seeds and mint; rosemary and lemon chicken; a small bobotie with onion relish, stewed fruit and almonds; patat with honey; beetroot with feta and herbs; tzatsiki with pumpkin seeds, home-baked breads stuffed with olives and nutty seed loaves browned with molasses. Home-made offerings include tapenade, onion relish, balsamic reduction, fig paté, pesto, fragrant apricot jam and tomato chilli jam. Home-made preserves include plum, fig, peach, quince and pear.

The to-die-for French chocolate cake is served with a luscious green fig. We also have a delicate lemon- meringue cheese cake as well as several other freshly baked cakes.
