We are excited to announce the launch of our Picnics that are available on Saturday and Sundays during the summer season.

Join us for a picnic, in one of 6 of our private picnic tables situated on our lawn with breathtaking views of the Paarl and Simonsberg Mountains or be seated in the shade of Oak trees next to a stream. The picnic includes a picnic basket filled to the brim with delectable treats from FABER Restaurant and goods from OCHRA. Booking essential (48 hours prior)

Picnic basket for two people R500 per basket or Kiddies picnic R150

Your basket will include a freshly baked, wood-fired Bagette, to be enjoyed with some delicious FABER tapenades and preserves, to be enjoyed with a selection of local charcuterie , and cheeses from Dalewood. This will be accompanied by estate-grown Darling olives and a homemade artisanal salad (Chinese cabbage, carrots, roasted almonds, raisins with an organic yogurt dressing), and an assortment of snacks sourced from our Deli. Finish your meal on a sweet note with the Chef’s patisserie of the day.

Are your kids joining us? Book them each a yummy kiddies picnic for R125.00.
