With dramatic mountain views framing the rolling lawns of Boschendal estate, it’s no surprise Le Pique Nique has become one of the most popular summer picnic options in the Cape winelands.

Our chefs use produce grown naturally on Boschendal or sourced from local artisan producers to put together generous picnic baskets packed with delicious and wholesome farm food. The seasonal picnic menus do change depending on what our food garden is producing.

We have two picnic areas offering a different experience. The two areas are 1km apart so be sure to remember which one you booked for.

Rhone Classic Picnic Lunches
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. This is a full service area and a service fee is charged.

Cost: R440 basket for two, R240 basket for one and R85 for young children. This is a full service picnic and includes a 10% service charge but excludes beverages.

Open Monday to Sunday.

Werf Garden Picnics
Our Werf Picnics are a more casual affair under the trees on the Pavillion lawn. This area is adjacent to the main werf area and our farm-to-table food hub. Werf picnic baskets include simple, nutritious food made from our natural farm produce and wholesome items made by our bakers, butchers, and chefs. Chill out in hammocks, flop in a bean bag or grab a blanket to find the perfect spot. Guests are welcome to bring a folding chair. Child friendly with a jungle gym and acres of garden to play in. This is a partial service area.

Cost: R360 basket for two, R195 basket for one and R85 for young children. This excludes beverages.
