Open Day Experience

 26 August, 30 September, 28 October 2023

Venue: Kleine Constantia (on the west rand of JHB)

With this experience, we have combined a few of our favourite things;  chocolate, wine, food and the tale of discovery, exploration, and invention. Join us on a Saturday and learn how to taste chocolate and the proper etiquette for eating chocolate.  Can you get to appreciate this luxury item before it disappears into your mouth and you are left scratching your head like a fool, staring at an empty box of Chocolates, wondering what the heck just happened?!

Once we have savoured the experience from Africa, Europe and Asia, you will be introduced to wonderful South African wines.  We will see how they pair (or don’t) with a selection of hand-crafted chocolate truffles.

For a private experience, a minimum of ten guests group booking is required and costs R5800.


How it works

We have not forgotten that good wine glasses are a must. Wines are designed to impress with inviting aromas, textures, and flavours. Our tasting will be presented out of our Riedel glasses designed to enhance those elements. Our Riedel representative and Cape Wine Master Charmaine will review the wines.

This super experience will be finished with a single-course light luncheon.  Enjoy your time afterwards in this wonderful sunny garden of our new venue Kleine Constantia.

What your afternoon out with The Chocolate Tier will include:

  • A ‘history of chocolate’ experience with our chocolate expert Kate Waller, founding member of The Chocolate Tier.
  • An introduction to the Riedel experience and Wine and Chocolate pairing with our resident Cape Wine master Charmaine Cockhead.
  • A plated luncheon will be prepared for you by chef patron Marian Strobos of Kleine Constantia.
