Franschhoek Wine Valley

Heritage Day Farm Feast at Boschendal

It’s National Heritage day/Braai Day. We are hosting the most amazing open-air Ox roast feast in front of Boschendal’s historic Rhone Homestead, on the Rhone lawns which boast the largest Heritage Rose garden in South Africa.

When  : 24 September 2017

Time   : 12h00 – 16h00

Where : Boschendal

Picture a long table under the oak trees, groaning with incredible harvest style delicacies. Picture our diligent chefs preparing incredible side dishes, mostly over open fires. Picture one of our home-raised, pasture-fed Angus oxen slow roasting on a spit over a bed of coals. Sounds utterly delicious doesn’t it? So bring your family and join us.

Enjoy platters heaped with seasonal farm produce, great wine including some new Boschendal releases, and a festive atmosphere with brilliant live entertainment from Slow Jack.

Reservations are essential.
