Boschendal Musical Wine, Picnics & Valentine Vibes

Boschendal’s Werf Picnics

Sunday Music Picnics With Blair Taberer, Slow Jack & Manouche

Fancy something a bit different for a Sunday? Bored of making that roast and doing those dishes? Yes? So come and chill out with a gorgeous picnic and listen to some of the best muso’s in South Africa as they get their groove on at Boschendal.

Blair Taberer – 05 February 2017

Boschendal is proud to support local talent, and they have carefully selected a diverse range of acts, from Gypsy Jazz, Afro-Electro and home-grown Rock to covers of international hits. They’ve created a line-up that gives you the best of local flavour while catering to a varied audience, and rest assured, each and every one of these acts is brilliantly enjoyable.  I have been at a function on the Boschendal Estate where Manouche has performed – and certainly the group is huge fun.

Slow Jack – 05 March 2017

Boschendal is a family farm, so take the kids and let them play on the Werf lawns while you laze in the sun with a chilled glass of vino and soak up some local sounds. There are hammocks and bean bags, blankets and large shady oak trees. Bring along your own blankets and camping chairs if you like. There’s a scenic pavilion and all around you are the majestic and magnificent Drakenstein mountains. It’s a great place to laze away a Sunday.

Manouche – 02 April 2017

The only thing needed, now that the scene is set, is some lovely food. Your picnic basket will be filled with wholesome, artisanal treats from our farm produce. On offer are the most scrumptious salads, picked fresh that morning in the Boschendal Werf Food Garden, freshly baked baguettes, wonderful local cheese, homemade preserves, incredible free range chicken (thank you Farmer Rico), yummy desserts and to wash it all down, some of the fine Boschendal Wines.

Price: R495 for a picnic basket for 2, R260 for a picnic basket for 1, R980 for a picnic basket for 4. Kids under 12, R115. A 10% gratuity is added to each table for our your waitstaff.
