    Best Long List of the Year South Africa, presented by Winterhalter 2023

    Aubergine Restaurant is centrally located in Cape Town in the inner-city suburb Gardens in a previous private house dating back almost 200 years. The interior is warm and welcoming with plenty of yellowwood furniture throughout the venue and a cozy fireplace for winter. The cooking is terrific and the chef owner Harald Bresselschmidt understands wine evolution better than many sommeliers and is a firm promoter and supporter of sommellerie in South Africa. The result is a remarkable (and mature) cellar of goodies for a small restaurant.

The terrasses overlook the sea where the sun sets, arguably the best setting in Cape Town in this regard. The hotel is very exclusive and private, so not a place where you can simply pop in for a drink on your way home, you will need to make a reservation in advance (maybe even plead a little bit) in order to be admitted. It’s worth it.

The offering, which is available throughout the hotel's many dining areas, spans over 30 pages long and includes an array of local and international wines across a host of cultivars, blends, vintages and regions. In addition to a concise yet considered by-the-glass and Coravin service, there's also a half-bottle offering (375ml...
