Embrace the holiday season with the ultimate picnic lunches at Hartenberg Wine Estate, one of South Africa’s oldest producers of Shiraz in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, now open seven days a week. Known for its picnic tradition since the 80’s, Hartenberg’s warm hospitality and picnic baskets, filled to the brim with delicious wholesome and fresh country fare, are sure to be one of this summer’s highlights. If you want to make a day of it, enjoy a game of boules or croquet on the outstretched lawns.
This year Hartenberg brings you a selection of no less than three mouth watering menus to choose from.
The Main menu, at R135 per person, includes a carafe of Hartenberg wine, Eleanor Finlayson’s famous smoked snoek pate and a selection of home baked breads as a starter. For mains there is a selection of cold meats, seasonal salads, local cheeses and preserves, fresh seasonal fruit, roasted vegetables, crudités and pickles, and last but not least coffee and koeksisters for dessert.
If the Main menu does not tickle your fancy, the lighter Homemade Quiche menu at R120 per person is a delicious alternative; including smoked snoek pate with home baked breads, homemade quiche served with baby leaf salad, vegetable crisps and a glass of Hartenberg’s premium wines rounded off with a coffee and koeksister.
Or for lazy lounging in the sun, the Olive and Cheese platters from R60 per person is an obvious choice, including a selection of breads and a glass of Hartenberg wine.
All the food is prepared by Hartenberg’s trained staff, who takes great pride in their home cooked country fare. Hartenberg Wine Estate is situated on the Bottelary Road off the R304 to Stellenbosch.
