This laid-back, easy-going wine estate along the Bottelary Road is already famous for its family-style summer picnics on the lawns, as well as the courtyard lunches with a slightly more structured menu and approach. Whichever one you choose, you’ll be welcomed like a long-lost friend to make memories anew. It’s a warm and friendly place with superb fresh and seasonal home-style cooking and, of course, some of the best wines going. Do make a point of trying their Rieslings too, or take some home – this varietal is a perfect match for spicier food, especially Thai and Asian.


Perfect for the whole family, a day at Hartenberg is a must on your to-do list this summer. Whilst the adults relax under the trees cooled by the summer breezes, the kids will be kept entertained for hours in the play area or alongside the river banks. Choose a table under the trees or lounge on plump cushions¬†on the lawn with a beautifully packed picnic basket. All ingredients are locally sourced, free-range and¬†complemented by freshly baked breads. This season the picnic basket includes the popular Eleanor‚Äôs snoek p√Ęt√©, as well as a selection of the finest local cheeses and charcuterie with unique accompaniments such as a tasty tomato pesto. Pre-order your hearty gourmet sandwich, delicious quiche and freshly prepared salad to complete your picnic experience. The sandwich selection includes Pastrami, Farm Cheese, Rocket and Caramelized Onion; ¬†Chicken Caesar with Garlic Aioli, or Baby Marrow, Pesto and Chevin Cheese.

Quiches have fillings like Fig and Blue cheese; Bacon, Caramelized Onion and Thyme, or Smoked Salmon, Caper and Dill. Salads are made from fresh locally sourced ingredients and selections include Grilled Greens with Feta and Brown Rice; New Potato, Dill, Red Onion and Caper, or an Asian salad with tangy vinaigrette. Puds can be a deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake in a jar, or Peanut Butter and Chocolate dessert in a jar. 

The cost is R195 per person and includes a bottle of estate wine to share between two. Children under the age of 12 can also join in on the picnic fun with their own selection of delectable treats, at a cost of R80 per child.

Hartenberg‚Äôs summer-inspired courtyard menu is perfect for a leisurely lunch in the garden. The menu was carefully designed to complement the Hartenberg wines and include Salmon Trout Roulade, a Classic Caesar Salad and a delicious Vintners’ Platter with an assortment of charcuterie, cheeses, p√Ęt√© and freshly-baked bread. Karoo Lamp Chops and Grilled Tiger Prawns take pride of place alongside the popular Hartenberg Hamburger: a succulent beef burger patty, served with all of the traditional trimmings on a freshly-baked brioche bun. Desserts are Cheesecake with Berry Coulis or Chocolate Meringue Semifreddo.

A great children’s menu for the under 12’s is available on request.
