Beautiful Setting, Lovely Wines … Sitella is a winery and is the brain child of Simon and Maaike Berns and their team of professionals who create some pretty high end wines. Sitella is also home to a very glamorous Restaurant.
Sittella has the most beautiful setting on a hill slope overlooking rows of vines and a dam. If you’re lucky you will get a seat on their deck which is the perfect position to take in this view.
As I mentioned they make some pretty high end wines but my favourite is their sparkling wine. It’s a unique blend and one that I purchase for special occasions.
In the Restaurant, Head Chef Mike Price, whose experience includes the Connaught Hotel in London, rules the kitchen.
We opted for the set menu of 3 courses. Not usually into eating 3 courses but this food was pretty worth it. A trio of dips to start, followed by Snapper, Mash and Vegetables with Strawberries and Icecream for dessert. Perfect.
The food is really good and sometimes the service is a bit of a let down. But the reason I keep going back is for that view, the food and a taste of that sparkling wine.
