Spier, one of the oldest farms in South Africa, is located in Stellenbosch. The Seaward range is made from Seaward grapes, selected from South Africa’s top coastal areas where it is grown in a narrow band close to the ocean. For this special occasion, the choices of white wine will be the Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc while the red wine will be the Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage. 

Experience the fusion of local and global flavours and discover the individual elements that are brought to life in the food. Guests will enjoy an exclusive 3-course menu designed by head chef, Vimal Kumar. Each dish has been carefully matched with wines and will be enjoyed alongside the guided tastings by the sommelier.

“The wine pairing initiative was conceived to exhibit how Asian flavours can be enhanced as well as Western flavours with the right types of wine. It is rare to pair wine with Asian elements. Even our Western dishes have some form of Asian flavours or spices added to create a fusion cuisine that is unique to Chiqui Don,” said Kuhan, Co-founder of Chiqui Don. 

“Chiqui don is a melting pot of casual Asian and Western flavours under one roof. What makes us special is that we are continuously innovating on our food and beverage offerings with a community sourcing element. We also believe that Chiqui Don should be known as a place where everyone can come for daily dining and cocktails,” he added.
