Delheim Picnics
While the weather is making up its mind which mode to be in for the day, you might as well take out your notebook and jot down some top destinations for Cape Winelands picnics this summer.

Delheim Wine Estate at the foothills of Simonsberg should top that list. The season for its Riverside Picnics is open from October 1 until end April 2017. Chill on the banks of the Klip River, surrounded by abundant birdlife, and make the most of the beauty surrounding you.

THE PICNIC: ‘Brimming with all things homemade and share-worthy, baskets are for 2 and cost R460 per couple. For starters, there’s a selection of cheeses, charcuterie, pickled pumpkin, biltong, crusty bread and hummus. Then, tuck into the more substantial indulgences – a kidney bean and sweet corn salsa and two salads – one of watermelon, the other a chicken Caesar – a roast beef bagel with all the trimmings, and a mini milk tart. Vegetarian option is available.’

Each basket comes with either a bottle of zesty Delheim Sauvignon Blanc, the estate’s famous Pinotage Rosé, or a bottle of Delheim Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz – a firm favourite amongst red wine lovers.

Children’s baskets are available at R100 each and contain finger-licking goodies such as chicken wing lollipops with baby potatoes and cucumber, juice as well as cheese and crackers. Each kiddies’ box comes with home-baked cookies to decorate.’

“Our historic farm offers a serene setting to coax the entire family to ditch their electronic devices and connect with nature instead,” says Delheim Destination Manager, Charlotte Terblanche. “Before settling down for a picnic, some of the grown-ups might want to saddle up for a session on our mountain bike trail. Then, after lawn games with the kids, conclude your picnic with some cloud-spotting and our cupcake and wine pairing. ‘It’s pure winelands bliss and the reason we use the tagline, ‘Worth the Journey’ for Delheim,” says Terblanche.

Besides memorable family outings, Delheim’s Riverside Picnics are also perfect for end-of-year celebrations, corporate outings, entertaining the in-laws during the holidays, a stork tea alfresco or a relaxed pre-wedding social before a loved one ties the knot.

The estate is a strong follower of sustainable farming, and is passionately committed to the conservation and the rehabilitation of their natural habitat and indigenous flora. With the Riverside Picnics, the estate invites visitors to reconnect with Delheim and its carefully preserved natural environment.
