Summer PicnicsStellenbosch wine estate Uitkyk is offering delicious gourmet picnics and cheese platters that will guarantee anyone a memorable daytrip to the Cape Winelands this summer.

Enjoy a delicious picnic on the sprawling lawns surrounding the estate’s neo-classical manor house from 1788, or on its terrace while the kids keep themselves entertained on the Dreamweavers jungle gym.  You can also order a cheese platter in the tasting centre to savour with some of Uitkyk’s delicious wines.

A gourmet picnic basket for two at R300, including a bottle of wine, is available but must be booked 24 hours in advance. Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets, in which case a R50 entrance fee will be applicable.  This fee will however be waivered if more than R100 is spent on wine purchases at the estate’s tasting centre.  Guests may also bring picnic blankets and chairs, but picnic blankets can also be booked at no cost. A cheese platter for four is offered at R120 and can be ordered on arrival.

Uitkyk’s festive trading hours are Mondays to Fridays from 9:00 to 17:00 and Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 to 16:00.

Contact Carlin van Graan on 021 884 4416 or [email protected] for bookings and enquiries.

Delheim picnics daily by the riverside ‘til April 2012 http://www.stufftodo.co.za/delheim-picnics-daily-by-the-riverside-%e2%80%98til-april-2012/ Thu, 27 Oct 2011 09:20:19 +0000 http://www.stufftodo.co.za/?p=4780 Summer has arrived, the mercury is rising, and attention turns again to the sunny Cape outdoors.

Delheim PicnicsSummer has arrived, the mercury is rising, and attention turns again to the sunny Cape outdoors. Enjoy a gourmet picnic on the lawn at the riverside behind the Delheim cellar (mere meters away from where Bessie the cow drank 20 litres of wine: though we don’t suggest a repeat performance by our visitors!) seven days a week at 12h00, until the end of April 2012. The best score of all is the Delheim wine, sold at cellar door prices to Delheim picnickers, sans a restaurant mark-up.

On the menu this season is smoked salmon; a salad of home-smoked chicken breast with celery, spring onions, homemade pickled pumpkin and pomegranate kernels; a curried lentil salad with mint and peppadews; mascarpone cheese & fig spread; leberwurst pâté; locally-made blue cheese; freshly-cut biltong; homemade dolmades; zwiebelkuchen (German onion pie); beef samoosas; pimento-stuffed olives from Chrisna’s Deli; sun-ripened cocktail tomatoes; freshly-baked farm bread; focaccia and crackers.

Those who still have room for dessert can opt for fresh fruit or something sweeter – koeksisters & Gabriele chocolates (which I’m sure would be Bessie’s choice; but don’t let that dissuade you!) A large bottle of sparkling water is included in the price and a vegetarian option is available on request.

A basket for two is a bargain at R260 (excluding additional beverages), while a basket for four can be had for R520.

A special basket for children under the age of 12, priced at R65, includes a bratwurst hotdog, carrot sticks, raisins, Gouda cheese, crackers, yoghurt, fresh fruit, a chocolate brownie with ice cream, and a fruit juice.

Best of all, if you bounce out of bed to discover a sunny day, let us know before 10h30 and your basket can still be prepared. Contact the restaurant team at [email protected] or telephone (021) 888-4607.

Natural hot water springs of 43º Celsius are situated only two hours drive from Cape Town on a citrus farm in the scenic Olifants River Valley, near the town of Citrusdal in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Established in 1739 this self-catering resort, with handsome Victorian-style stone buildings, maintains an old world charm in
a scenic, rural setting. Today the resort is run by the great-grandchildren of James McGregor, who bought The Baths on public auction in Clanwilliam in 1903.

Accommodation includes 15 chalets and 12 flats with self-contained kitchens and braai areas. There are 15 well shaded caravan and camping sites with ablution facilities and some with electrical points.
In addition to the hot and cold water swimming pools and spa baths, relaxing pastimes include tennis, trampoline, pool table, small playground for children, hiking trails, mountain biking and bird watching.
MacGregors’ Restaurant with its mouthwatering a la carte menu offers an alternative to self-catering or the opportunity to relax with sundowners on the deck.
A shop on site sells self-catering necessities.
The owners of The Baths have a policy of non-commercialisation. We do not have TV’s in the units nor do we have cell phone reception (you can get reception 1km away). We want to promote outdoor living in a relaxed, yet comfortable atmosphere.
