Let Grande Provence enchant you this Valentine’s Day

Indulge your love for the Grande life this Valentine’s Day at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in the heart of Franschhoek. Couples can delight in a swoon-worthy dinner menu or enjoy a romantic picnic lunch under majestic oaks.

On arrival, couples will be welcomed with oysters and bubbly to set the scene for the most romantic day of the year.
Chef Marvin Robyn will be spoiling couples with a sensuous 4-course Valentine’s menu. For starters, he’s working his magic with red, the colour of love, with a tempting choice between compressed watermelon, feta cheese, confit tomatoes and kalamata; or beetroot tagliatelle, burrata, dukkah spice, honeycomb and beetroot potpourri. The next course of fresh Saldana Bay oysters paired with kimchi, fresh plums, oyster kaiings and sweet lime mayo is pure seduction. Alternatively if oysters are not for you, try the heirloom tomatoes with mozzarella, basil pesto and Kalamata crumb. For mains, couples can choose between springbok loin, fire roasted beetroot, pickled onions with beetroot gastrique; or the line fish, grilled gem lettuce, sweetcorn and smoked snoek croquettes with chilli caramel. For dessert there is a choice between heavenly vanilla panna cotta with raspberry sorbet and dried meringue; or frozen chocolate mousse, red velvet cake and dried strawberries.

The Valentine’s picnic basket available all day, is pure abundance packed to the brim with delicious artisanal foods. Treats include fresh seasonal fruits, a tomato basil & feta tartlet, assorted arancini, estate made hummus, local cheeses and charcuterie, and a decadent chocolate brownie. The basket comes with a bottle of the estate’s popular Angels Tears wine as well as still or sparkling water.
