Everyone loves a braai, but boy, it’s not exactly quick and easy cooking. If you want the food and fun without the fuss, head to Middelvlei Wine Estate for their traditional, full-on Boerebraai feasts.
The concept of Middelvlei’s Boerebraai is actually so genius, it makes you wonder why more places don’t offer it all year round. It’s so easy – when the craving hits, just make your booking, load up the car with fellow braai lovers, and off you go. Served 7 days a week, this means every day and any day can be Braai Day. (Bookings are required.) Low-carb eaters and vegetarians are happily catered for, just remember to state your preference when booking.
A Middelvlei Boerebraai is also the perfect introduction to traditional South African outdoors cooking if you want to treat foreign visitors. Oh, and Middelvlei makes gorgeous wine, so make a day of it and get ready to feast!
In the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands lies Middelvlei Wines, owned and run by the Momberg family since 1919. As you enter the gates leading to the farm, you are met by the breathtaking vineyards in the natural amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of the Devon Valley.
This is where you can enjoy the popular Boerebraai, a unique outdoor barbecue experience. An integral part of our South African heritage, the team at Middelvlei have taken this social event to the next level.
Their resident braai expert prepares your chops, boerewors and chicken kebabs to perfection, as you sit back, relax and sample the superb Middelvlei wines on offer. The enticing aromas of the homemade potbrood and braaibroodjies whet your appetite for what lies ahead, with Ben Momberg’s homemade pâté and Ouma Annie’s pumpkin fritters placing the Middelvlei Boerebraai experience in a league of its own. Personally, I’d go for triple servings of braaibroodjies, thank you very much, with a little bit of wors on the side.
On sunny days you’ll want to sit outside on the sprawling verandah, admiring the views while you tuck in. On colder days the cozy fireplace inside will add extra warmth. The range of wines perfectly complement what can only be described as hearty South African comfort food. The selection of wines includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and a Pinotage.
At a cost of R225pp your Boerebraai experience includes a starter and main course and is available seven days a week between 12pm and 3pm. Low-carb and vegetarian option are also available. For a nominal additional charge why not include another South African classic for dessert – a Malva pudding and ice cream, which is guaranteed to end off a perfect outing.
As Middelvlei is first and foremost a family-owned establishment, the team strives to be family friendly and as such welcome visitors of all ages. Whilst Mom and Dad are enjoying a glass of wine, the young ones can play in the sandpit, feed the farm animals, enjoy the open space on the kick bikes, or braai their own marshmallows. A special kiddie’s meal at R60 per child is available to ensure their tummies are kept full (and happy).
