Picnics are great fun, unless you’re the one who gets tasked with packing, schlepping the basket to and from the car, to find out the salad dressing has leaked all over the bread, and you forgot to pack a screwdriver. Aaaand clearing up afterwards as well…
Well, here’s the perfect solution to all of that: enjoy the season of blooming flowers with a picnic on the lawns of The Cellars-Hohenort!
The five-star luxury hotel, part of the renowned trio of hotels known as The Liz McGrath Collection, will be hosting scenic picnics set against the lush backdrop of the Hohenort gardens, starting this October.
The country’s 2nd oldest camphor trees grace the verdant grounds – these majestic beauties having laid down their roots 300 years ago, back when the property was still known as Klaasenbosch Farm. While the early European settlers to the Cape have long since left us, these arboreal giants remain, testimony to the power of nature and the enduring, formidable strength of great trees.
Enjoy an enchanting experience on the lawns with three Picnic Basket options, with set menus to choose from. Picnic Basket menu #1 includes tapas, fresh homemade baked ciabatta with farm butter, free range roast chicken, artisanal house salads in a jar with vinaigrette, carrot cake with cream cheese icing, bottled water and freshly pressed juice, for R185 per person. Picnic Basket menu #2 and #3 include all of the above items plus some additional items for R200 and R285 per person, respectively. All Picnic menus are available upon request.
If you are in a celebratory mood you can elect to order from The Cellars-Hohenort wine list – there are various whites, reds or MCCs from which to choose. Alternatively, toast to good health in real French style, by adding a bottle of Veuve Cliquot 375ml or 750ml to your basket. Prices are available on request.
