Celebrate New Year’s Eve with some swinging jazzy goodness at the Olive Press Barn on Boschendal.

The Olive Press is our beautiful new event venue with exposed natural poplar roof trusses, floor to ceiling glass doors and stunning views over meadow gardens to the Groot Drakenstein and Simonsberg mountains.

Christiaan Campbell, our executive chef, and his team will be sharing flavourful farm-to-table food using produce from Boschendal and the local winelands while Gypsey Jazz band Manouche will keep your feet tapping.

Start your evening off on the Olive Press lawn sipping on bubbly while snacking on a selection of finger foods. Move to your table and enjoy family style dining with friends and family. The menu for the evening  is centered around  slow smoked barbeque free range meats and fish, and local winelands produce. Wind the evening down with dessert from the “Box of Treats” brought to your table, a selection of petite sweet treats from our Pastry Chef.

Manouche is a 5 piece band that blend French Gypsy Jazz, Swing, Folk, Tango and Waltz into their original songs. Music to dance to, the voice of an angel and a group of brilliant musicians will make your evening unforgettable.  Click here to watch a video of Manouche. More at Bring your dancing shoes!
