Black Friday & Some Exciting News


9 November 2020  -  Neethlingshof Wine Estate

Welcome to our November Newsletter. It is probably fair to say that 2020 has been a challenging year for many people, and definitely for the wine industry; but with the abundance of new growth and beauty all around us on the farm we are feeling a sense of hope for what the future may hold.

Summer is almost here, with lots of preparation being done for the 2021 harvest in both the cellar and the vineyards. With the improving weather the Tasting Centre is getting busier again and our Wine Down Wednesdays have moved outside for the Summer season. Read on for some news about The Restaurant closure, food options at the Wine Garden, Black Friday deals and events.

Closure of The Restaurant at Neethlingshof
With the outbreak of COVID-19 in March we were forced, like all other restaurants, to close our doors. Initially it was a temporary closure as we believed that we would be allowed to open up again after the initial 5 weeks of lockdown were over. As time passed, and as lockdown was extended, it became apparent that restaurants would remain closed for a much longer period than was originally anticipated.

When, after many months, restaurants were finally allowed to open their doors for business again, there were so many regulations restricting the resumption of normal business, that we decided to further postpone our reopening. During this time we considered various alternative ways of opening The Restaurant in a financially viable manner. Although many locals frequent The Restaurant, it has historically been very dependent on the many international tourists visiting our Estate.

As time moved on, and especially with a second wave of COVID-19 now hitting Europe and the USA, it became apparent that it will take many more months for international tourism to return to anything approaching normal levels. As a result we sadly had no option but to close The Restaurant permanently while we continue to rethink our future food offering.

We are currently in discussion with various parties regarding this and hope to be able to open the restaurant again once international tourists return to SA. In the meantime we have partnered with The Salt Road who will be serving a selection of pizzas and other light meals from our Wine Garden, giving locals another reason to visit us as we head into the summer season.
