Boschendal launches new picnics

TWO DIFFERENT PICNIC EXPERIENCES NOW AVAILABLE AT BOSCHENDAL

With dramatic mountain views framing the lush lawns of Boschendal estate, it’s no surprise the picnics have become one of the most popular outdoor options in the Cape Winelands over the decades. With a fresh breeze of innovation blowing through the farm, it was time to freshen up the picnics too and Boschendal now offers two distinctly different options.

The classic Boschendal picnic has relocated to the Rhone Homestead lawns, which forms the wine-making and wine-tasting hub of the estate. The picnic area is surrounded by the exhibition vineyards, the Rhone Homestead, the Cellar Door and Winery. Picnic baskets can be enjoyed at carefully-laid out tables or on a picnic blanket under the shady oak trees which surround the lawn. The picnics are fully serviced. The cost is R440 for two adults who share and R85 for kids under 12. (This includes a 10% service fee, but excludes beverages). Open daily.

The Werf Garden Picnics are a more casual affair under the trees on the Pavilion lawn. This area is adjacent to the main werf area and the farm-to-table food hub. Werf picnic baskets include simple, nutritious food made from natural farm produce and wholesome items made by Boschendal’s bakers, butchers, and chefs.  Chill out in hammocks, flop in a bean bag or grab a blanket to find the perfect spot. Guests are welcome to bring a folding chair. Child-friendly with a jungle gym and acres of garden to play in. This is a partially serviced area.  The cost is R360 for a basket for two, R195 for a  basket for one and R85 for young children. This excludes beverages.  Open Wednesday to Sunday.

The chefs use produce grown naturally on Boschendal or sourced from local artisan producers to put together generous picnic baskets packed with delicious and wholesome farm food. The seasonal picnic menus change depending on what the food garden is producing.
