Dornier Bodega Restaurant
The Home of Fine Wines and Farm Cuisine
In the ragged folds of the Stellenbosch Mountain - between fynbos-clad hills and manicured vines – lies a culinary destination beckoning both food and wine aficionados and gastronauts.
Housed in the pastoral allure of a historic barn, the Dornier Bodega pursues the perfect marriage between modern food preparation and classic elegance that has come to be expected from Dornier Wines.
Guests are invited to elevate their senses in a relaxed environment, and indulge in a Dornier dominated wine list that accentuates the locally-sourced fresh ingredients of the Dornier Bodega’s seasonal menu.
At Dornier we cater for a wide range of conferences, functions, events, product launches, photo and film shoots. This tranquil setting is only 50 minutes drive from Cape Town and 30 minutes from the airport.
Different venues are available:
