Franschhoek wine estate Allée Bleue, has taken the name of its flagship red wine L’Amour Toujours’ as inspiration for their Valentine’s Day Celebrations – and planned special activities for parents and lovers!
Valentine’s Day for lovers
Chef Glenn Ferus and his team will prepare the most extravagant, exotic and romantic meal for you and your loved one to enjoy at Allée Bleue on Valentine’s Day. Start with a glass of Allée Bleue’s delicious Brut Rosé Cap Classique before moving on to a taste-tingling Quail Crepinette filled with decadent Foie Gras and finished with a creamy spinach and mushroom sauce. For the main course enjoy Scottish scallops to pair with a delicately-seared slice of Norwegian Salmon, it’s pretty pink colour offset by a creamy asparagus mousse and crunchy potato rosti. Finish off your meal with a cunning cornette of strawberry ice cream with Belgian chocolate and a kiwi compote. Truly special food for a very special occasion with the one you love. The cost of the Valentine’s Dinner is R295 per person and bookings are essential.
Valentine’s Day for parents
Sometimes it’s hard for parents to find the time and energy (and babysitters!) to go out in the evening, so why not celebrate February 14th with a decadent and romantic picnic lunch instead? Allée Bleue’s famous Chic-nic offers delicious homecooked food served in the most luxurious way on brightly-coloured table cloths, comfy tables and chairs and be-dewed ice buckets. And if you want to make it a family affair, then the ‘Stick-nic’ picnics (child-friendly food wrapped in a checked cloth and slung onto a stick to make adventurous eating fun!) are proving to be a massive hit with the youngsters. The Chic-nic costs R145 per person and include a special gift from the estate, kids Stick-nics are R45.
L’Amour Toujours, Allée Bleue’s, flagship red wine is well-named with class, elegance, depth and richness oozing out of every glass. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it is available from the farm for R150 a bottle and is the ideal present for any lover of wine.
A bottle of Cap Classique Brut Rosé is perfect for any Valentine’s occasion, whether it’s breakfast in bed, a romantic picnic, a special dinner or the ideal nightcap with flutes intertwined at the end of a wonderful day. Priced at only R105 a bottle from our cellar door, make sure you make time to visit Allée Bleue this Valentine’s month.
