Executive Chef and Owner Chris McDaniel, has owned and travelled to some of the top restaurants worldwide. Chris and his wife Cara have a unique passion for food and wine and are constantly trying to push the boundaries to improve the food and wine experience at Rain Farm. Seasonality and simplicity are two of the key approaches that Chris uses on his menus.
“When you acknowledge, as you must, that there is no such thing as perfect food, only the idea of it, then the real purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear: to make people happy, that is what cooking is all about.”
Our passion knows no bounds. We strive to taste the best South Africa has to offer: From the cool slopes of Elgin to the frozen mountains of the Cederberg; From the warm and ever inviting vines of Stellenbosch, to the elegant valleys of Franschhoek, we have paired each wine on this list to an assortment of our culinary delights.
All of our wines have been carefully selected and stored at an optimal temperature and in a humidity controlled environment to aid with the aging process.
We have a large selection of wines by the glass to ensure your dining experience is enhanced with every sip.
We invite you to browse through our cellar collection. These wines have been carefully selected and only placed onto the list when they are at their drinking best. We have not put tasting notes down for our cellar collection, as with age, the wines evolve.
Due to the rarity of our cellar collection wines and the time we have taken to cellar them, their availability is limited. Especially those of a maiden vintage and single barrel collection.
