I have eaten previously at Boschendal and enjoyed the food and service. On this occasion, I was very disappointed with the picnic provided. It was poor in quality and did not represent value for money... more »
Their are numerous different reasons to visit the beautiful Boschendal Wine Estate - from staying in one of their beautiful cottages to enjoy a relaxing picnic on their big green lawns. My wife and I really enjoy their wine and we decided to take some friends there while they were visiting us from Pretoria. They have several wines and a number of different tasting options available including a tasting of their 10 year Potstill Brandy which I recommend you give a try. We really enjoyed the tasting, but I was a bit sad to see that they had moved the tasting area from outdoors under the big green trees to inside the manor house. The manor house is beautiful, but I preferred the outdoor open area with the beautiful trees and gardens surrounding you. Overall we still had a fun time and will definitely visit again.
Chose the 4 wine and 4 chocolate pairing and the wine was good however the chocolate wasn’t great. We sat outside in the beautiful estate. The staff were very friendly and even gave us some complimentary sparkling wine after accidentally mixing up the wine order.
