With the dramatic Drakenstein mountain views framing the lush lawns of Boschendal, we ensure that we offer some of the most popular outdoor picnics in the Cape Winelands.

Our classic Boschendal picnic has relocated to the Rhone Homestead lawns, which forms the wine-making and wine-tasting area of the estate and 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 and the cost is R440 for two adults to share, R240 for a basket for one and R85 for kids under 12. Includes a 10% service fee, but excludes beverages and is open daily.

The Werf Garden Picnics are a more casual, child-friendly affair under the trees on the Pavilion lawn and offer  simple, nutritious food made from natural farm produce.  Relax in hammocks, bean bags or grab a blanket to find the perfect spot, we also encourage our guests to bring their own fold up chairs and tables, games or picnic blankets.  This is a partially serviced area and the cost is R360 for a basket for two adults to share, R195 for a basket for one and R85 for young children. Includes a 10% service fee, but excludes beverages and open from Wednesday to Sunday. Don’t miss the Live Music picnics on the first Sunday of every month.

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.

The Farm

Agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal. One of the oldest farms in South Africa, founded 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines and happy memories.


Guest accommodation is a recent addition to the farm with luxury accommodation ranging from the historical Herbert Baker designed Rhodes Cottage to beautifully restored farm labourer cottages. With emphasis on stylish simplicity the guest cottages are authentic, rural yet contemporary in character.

Our Wines

Given our exceptional winemaking heritage of almost 300 years, the Boschendal cellar masters meticulously balance rustic tradition and modern innovation to produce classic, fruity wines while upholding the ecological integrity that has become synonymous with our brand.
