With its lush manicured lawns, beautiful rose beds, landscaped gardens and Cape Dutch-style Manor House, picnics at Kievits Kroon Country Estate in Pretoria is somewhat of a throwback to the wine estates of the Cape.
For a quiet, grown-up weekend escape, try the gourmet picnic baskets to savour on the lawns of the estate to celebrate a special occasion or for a spontaneous dining option with a difference.
Kievits Kroon’s team will supply your picnic blanket, cushions and a delicious basket of treats which include wraps, quiches, terrines, paté, smoked salmon, a selection of cold meats, salads and cheeses, fresh bread and a variety of fruit and desserts.
The estate also offers guests the option to top up their basked with the Grand Rouge and Sauvignon Blanc vines, which are included on the estate’s award-winning wine list.
Advance booking is essential.
