A Gastronomical Delight
At The Wine Glass, our food and wine pairings are something to truly savour. Our kitchen uses only fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
The Wine Glass Food Experience
The Wine Glass in Hermanus offers a selection of close to 100 wines available to taste, savour and enjoy by the glass, by the bottle or simply in a tasting flight of six.
Wine from our region has never been easier to appreciate. We pride ourselves in representing a wonderful selection of wines from Botriver, Hemel & Aarde, Stanford, Elim and Agulhas.
Scrumptious plates of food are served from our kitchen where our chef has been inspired by local cuisine to take you on a gastronomic journey.
“This is what Hermanus has been missing!”
Geraldine Howie, Food Stylist
Starting with 6 large, spanking-fresh west coast oysters served on ice with a slice of lemon, Tabasco and 3 sauces
on the side – diced red onion in red wine vinaigrette, grated apple in apple cider vinaigrette, and soy-ginger-ponzu. You will not be disappointed!
The Wine Glass Platter is a delicious deli composition of coppa, salami, parma ham, cremona Gorgonzola, stonehouse Cajun spiced and Camembert cheeses, Kleinrivier Colby cheese, chicken liver pate with port jelly, kalamata olives and giant green Spanish olives, and pickled Mediterranean vegetables – served with preserved
fig and crackers.
The chef can recommend wine pairings to accompany the scrumptious tasting plates from the restaurant kitchen. Our food offering focusses on top quality ingredients. Choose and share a few plates between a couple, or a group of friends. And don’t forget the sweeter side of life, paired with a freshly brewed cuppa. A sample from our menu below:
