What’s Food without the Wine?


The Nacht Wacht Restaurant wine list is selected to perfectly pair with the delicious dishes on the menu. As such, the wine list is constantly evolving, as Nacht Wacht Restaurant chef and owner Melanie Albertyn samples creative new cuisines. Melanie will also offer pairing suggestions, to maximize your culinary pleasure.

Given Nacht Wacht Restaurant’s setting, close to Bredasdorp and therefore to Elim, the wine list features many of Elim’s finest wines. The Elim Wine Ward is one of the most closely watched in South Africa. The cool Elim sea winds and special soil are creating distinctive fruity flavours. The wines here are crisp and cool. And are firm favourites of Nacht Wacht Restaurant and its many patrons.

The wine list therefore includes Black Oystercatcher, The Berrio, Zoetendal and First Sighting. Other wines featured are from the Bonnivale and Robertson area.

The story behind our own wine


Melanie says: “I always wanted to make my own wine, and in 2010, Dirk Human, owner of the Black Oystercatcher Wines and a very good friend, gave me the opportunity. I handpicked my own grapes and pressed them myself. The Nacht Wacht Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2010, which is 20% Sauvignon blanc and 80% Semillon, then rested in light French oak wine barrels.

“Live with passion, live everyday”

Melanie Albertyn
