Delheim Estate
Dip into a melting pot of culinary bliss, fine wines and genuine hospitality when family-owned Delheim Wine Estate, nestled just outside Stellenbosch, wards off the winter chills with their popular Jazz & Cheese Fondue indulgences, every Sunday afternoon from 7 July until 25 August.
This ultimate winter warmer is your ticket to end your weekend on a decadent high with a taste of retro-nostalgia, when resident chef Christine Claasen treats guests to Delheim’s spin on the all-time favourite cheese fondue.
Lashings of piping hot cheese fondue meet toe-tapping tunes when guests are ushered to the cosy ‘downstairs’ tasting cellar at this prominent Winelands destination, where steaming pots of Swiss fondue and award-winning estate wines tantalise the senses to the sounds of The REAL Wicomb Jazz Trio.
“Unspoilt by gourmet pretensions, Delheim offers the perfect hotspot for families and friends to spend their Sundays, with steaming pots of mouth-watering cheese sensations to comfort winter blues. Our more-ish fondue is prepared to an authentic Swiss recipe and is served with farm-fresh bread and crisp crudités to satisfy the appetite,” shares Christine who joined Delheim at the end of 2012 after a stint at the 5-star Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town.
Meat lovers can pimp up their fondues with savoury potato and prosciutto bites and in addition to the dreamy fondue indulgence, starters and desserts – ranging from samoosas, pâtés and carpaccio to Grappa with dark chocolate truffles – can be ordered separately from Delheim’s Garden Restaurant. 
The Delheim Jazz & Cheese Fondue events on Sundays cost R150 per person and include a warming glass of Glühwein on arrival, the cheese fondue as well as the live music (starters, desserts and meaty add-ons are extra). The band will be adding rhythm and soul to a relaxed vibe from 12h30 until 15h30.

The estate is located in the Simonsberg sub-region of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, on the Knorhoek Road, off the R44.
