A sough-after and exclusive venue in Paarl in the Cape Winelands. Chef Mynhardt Joubert is the custodian of Mynhardt’s Cathedral Cellar Kitchen, a space flanked by some of the biggest, and hand-carved, wine vats in the world.
The Cathedral Cellar is one of the most exquisite venues in the winelands. Allowing an intimate party of up to 120 guests, this venue dates back to the 1930s when it was converted into KWV’s main cellar. Guests here are flanked by larger-than-life stuk vats, some of the biggest in the world, which simultaneously provides a serene and dramatic atmosphere. The dome-like ceiling – from where the Cathedral Cellar draws its name – evokes a holy feeling, making it absolutely perfect for memorable events.
