Boschendal wine farm boasts some of the most picturesque views in the Cape Winelands, with dramatic mountain vistas visible from the lush lawns. So, it’s no surprise that the estate has become a popular picnic spot, as families and friends come together for a day out.

We recently launched two new picnic lunches that offer guests distinctly different experiences. But there is one similarity – the food. Only naturally grown produce from the estate, as well as locally made artisanal goods, are used, ensuring guests receive a basket filled with delicious, healthy and wholesome food.

The seasonal picnic menus do change depending on what our food garden is producing.

The two picnic areas are 1km apart so be sure to remember which one you booked for.

Please note that we welcome all our Werf Picnic guests to bring their own blankets, chairs and tables.

Picnic areas

Rhone Classic Picnics

Our classic Boschendal picnic has relocated to the Rhone lawns - this is in the wine-making and wine-tasting hub of Boschendal. 

The picnic area has spectacular mountain views and is surrounded by the exhibition vineyards, the Rhone Homestead, the Cellar Door and our Winery. 

Picnic baskets can be enjoyed at carefully-laid out tables or on a picnic blanket under the shade of the oak trees. This is a full service area.

In the basket

Rhone picnic baskets include food made from our natural farm produce including delicate pates, freshly baked bread, three delicious salads, pasture raised meat, a selection of cold meats, homemade whole grain mustard mayo, artisan cheeses and one of our celebrated desserts.
