Rustic French style picnics at Grande Provence

Make the most of summer in the Franschhoek winelands with a rustic picnic in true French style under majestic oaks at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate.

Prepared by Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst, the Grande Provence summer picnic basket is filled to the brim with delightful baguettes, artisanal brie, locally cured saucisson, Franschhoek trout, homemade preserves and butter, artisanal rosemary and sea salted crisps with whole grain mustard aioli, a crisp garden salad, and a decadent chocolate brownie. These are all perfectly rounded off with a bottle of Angels Tears wine and your choice of still or sparkling water.

If you want to take your picnic experience up a notch, choose from a selection of rabbit-liver parfait, seasonal fruit, a chunky Waldorf salad, boerenkaas and beautiful rose and white macaroons. These extra luxuries are priced individually and can be added to your basket upon request.

The Grande Provence picnic menu is available at R325 per person sharing, or R345 for a single basket. To book, call The Restaurant at Grande Provence a day in advance on Tel: (021) 876 8600 or email at restaurant@grandeprovence.co.za. Summer picnics at Grande Provence take place from 1 October 2017 to 30 April 2018 and are weather dependant. Limited baskets are available per day, so book early to avoid disappointment.
