Each person entertains their own version of what philosophers call “the good life”. While some find fulfilment in the deep confines of their wallet, others find it by sky diving in a batman suit or eating a five course meal in their pyjamas. Whatever your definition of living the good life is; live it with a belly full of good food and wine with today’s Groupon: two Matt Black burgers and two glasses of Bilton Matt Black wine for R46.
As far as wine estates go, Bilton Wines takes the grape. Occupying a decent amount of hectares over the sweeping Helderberg Mountains, Bilton is an old-world wine estate which brings to mind images of grape stomping competitions and wise philosophy-quoting wine farmers.
Bilton’s restaurant, Vintage De’vine offers both fanatical foodies and plain-palated plebs a chance to sample the sweet-savoury and flavourful combinations of traditional Cape Cuisine. Stretch your chops to accommodate a succulent Matt Black burger and savour a unique beefiness that would make the average burger cower away in shame.
But what of this mysterious and illusive Matt Black? Is he some secret wine maverick living like a hermit with only a bowl of grapes as company? Legend has it that he lived in the time of Simon van der Stel and did just about anything to satisfy his insatiable appetite for quality wine. Sample two glasses of Matt Black-inspired wine and savour the rich red blend which bursts with flavours of wild berries and ripe cherries with a mild spice and lingering aftertaste of dark chocolate.
Grab today’s Groupon and enjoy a fine dining and wining experience, because who wants to live the good life when you can live a great one?
The good fact: Back when cell phones were the size of bricks, a wine farmer created a wine called Futurista. He said it was inspired by a dream he had of a 43 inch plasma TV.
