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.

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.

Rhone Rose Garden Picnic

Our classic Boschendal picnic is open on weekends. The picnic area is located at the Rhone lawns - this is in the wine-making and wine-tasting hub of Boschendal. 

Book a picnic basket at Rhone Rose Garden and receive a 10% discount on your wine tasting or wine purchase at the Cellar Door for the same day. Our Cellar Door wine tasting centre is conveniently located next to the picnic area.

*Discount only applies on tastings or purchases on the same day as your picnic booking.

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 are enjoyed at carefully-laid out tables under the shade of the oak trees. This is a full-service area. Bring the family for leisurely Saturday picnics with picturesque mountain views.
