We recently wrote about Maison Estate Vineyard and its clever Wine Bottle Chandeliers in the tasting room. Now we're taking a tour of Maison's new restaurant, the Kitchen.
Maison Estate is a small vineyard located in the valley of Franschhoek, about an hour outside Cape Town. With chef Arno Janse van Rensburg at the helm, the Kitchen has made a name for itself by serving local produce, and favorably ingredients handpicked from their own kitchen garden and orchards. The Kitchen interiors are modestly furnished by Weylandts products (yes, the Maison owner Chris Weylandt also owns a furniture emporium with stores throughout the world, most recently Australia). For more information, visit Maison Estate Kitchen.
