cosecha, a Spanish word for “harvest,” reflects this restaurant’s location next to the harvest area where grapes are sorted and crushed at Noble Hill Wine Estate in Paarl. Serving a mixture of traditional Mexican fare like Beef Enchiladas with Borracho Beans and more contemporary interpretations of the latin palette, each dish is paired with a different Noble Hill wine and the original Mexican beer, Corona, is on offer for the non-oenophile. cosecha serves breakfast all day, offering a traditional farm breakfast or mouthwatering Huevos Rancheros (literally, “ranch eggs”)—crisp corn tortillas topped with beans, fried eggs and shredded sharp cheddar served with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
From the patio guests have a relaxed, peaceful view of the gardens and reservoir. From the deck, guests can sit in one of the comfy couches and read the paper or taste delicious Noble Hill wines, look downwards through large glass panels into the farm’s barrel maturation cellar, and admire the breathtaking views of Kanonkop and the Simonsberg. Noble Hill rises behind vineyards, tucked between Kanonkop & Paarl Mountain, its rocky strata serving as a gentle reminder of that which hasn’t changed since the farm was established in 1674.
