At Oldenburg Vineyards we believe that the art of wine and food pairing can raise our levels of enjoyment of both to magical heights. Whilst we will never argue the fact that drinking our wines on their own is a magical experience in itself, there is something about the interaction of wine and food which creates a synergy we feel only then truly begins to encapsulate what our wines are all about.

We asked renowned South African chef Craig Cormack to come up with some classic food pairings for our wines. Craig, with whom we have a long standing relationship, often creates the culinary magic for our Wineclub dinners and other events we present here on the farm.
