Join us on the first ever Christmas in July, Coach Meander
Friday, 25th of July 2008

The Hotel Meander, one of the most anticipated reader events of the year, is happening in July. Each course will be served with award winning Nederburg Wines, delectably paired by the three chefs who have created wonderful menus reflecting their own interpretation of a Christmas Faire. This year all three chefs agreed to use the same basic ingredients only each one, as you will see, has his own ‘spin’ on the challenge.

With a selection of three different Meanders, you will be spoiled for choice. All you have to do is pick your route, then sit back and enjoy great company, delicious food and perfect wines as you move from one restaurant to the next.

Park your vehicle at the first hotel on the route, board the coach for the next two courses at a different hotel and come back to the first hotel where your vehicle is parked for dessert, coffee and gifts!
