We enjoyed a "pairing meal" for Sunday lunch here on this beautiful wine estate. Every bite of food was just an amazing experience. The food and various wines was absolutely First Class! Well done

The food and wine pairing with 4 courses is excellent. Very difficult to say whether the food or the wine are the best. Great taste and quality, and quantity is appropriate. The one challenge is to drive back home afterwards.

We invite you to join us at the Restaurant Clos Malverne for the ultimate Food and Wine Experience.
