Where provenance meets invention ...

Keeping food miles low with thoughtful creations & new forms …

The next chapter of Brookdale Estate’s Cinderella tale takes its shape in The Bistro and the Tasting Room found at our newly established cellar.

Found on gentle slopes in our furthest corner of vineyards, The Bistro gazes out across a sea of new vines and the mountainous landscape of our valley. With no other buildings or people in sight, it seems as though you are a world away. Here, in this pastoral paradise, menus will move to nature’s rhythms under the culinary wisdom of Executive Chef, Gary Coetzee.

“I search for produce and ingredients that are wholesome, nurtured, and bursting with flavour. This means sourcing the best seasonal, local produce in the Paarl Valley for The Bistro and Manor House. From there, it’s simply a case of marrying flavours, exploring textures, and discovering new combinations. Each plate is being designed to spark the palate, ignite the mind and awaken joy.”
