The Greenhouse at The Cellars-Hohenort, one of South Africa’s top restaurants and home of Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef Peter Tempelhoff, is delighted to launch an exclusive Dom Perignon tasting menu.

What better way to showcase one of the world’s best champagnes than pair it with the progressive African cuisine of The Greenhouse.

Instead of breaking the champagne down into flavour profiles and fruit nuances, Peter Tempelhoff decided to take the ‘Virtues of Dom Perignon’ and paired them up with ingredients with similar virtues. 

Sensuality is one of Dom Perignon’s most recognisable virtues; with this course Peter has paired two different dishes which include lobster and oyster.

The Complex virtue of Dom Perignon is matched with a dish that marries quail, bacon, parsnip, hanepoot grapes and chamomile.

Other virtues of Dom Perignon include Precise, Vibrant, Fresh and Rhythmic – to name but a few.


The Virtues of Dom Perignon Tasting Menu is priced at R3200 per couple.  The menu is only available for 2 people, or multiples of 2 with a maximum of 12 people in a party. This exclusive dining experience needs to be pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance.

To book The Virtues of Dom Perignon Tasting Menu contact: 021 794 2137.
