Franschhoek Wine Valley

Summer Picnics with French Flair at Grande Provence

Embrace lazy summer days with a rustic French-style picnic under the oaks in the beautifully landscaped garden overlooking the vineyards of Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek. With scrumptious morsels and a bottle of Angels Tears wine, you’re set for a tranquil afternoon on this fabulous wine estate.

Grande Provence Chef Darren Badenhorst has added his signature touch to create picnic baskets brimming with uncomplicated bites that burst with flavour. Think French baguettes with artisanal brie, locally cured saucisson, homemade preserves, country butter and decadent chocolate brownies. A fine bottle of Grande Provence wine completes the deal.

For those who want to take their picnic experience up a notch, rabbit liver parfait, seasonal fruits, wild mushroom quiche, salad and macaroons can be added to the basket on request.

To book your basket at R225 per person, call The Restaurant at Grande Provence a day in advance on Tel: 021-876 8600 or e-mail restaurant@grandeprovence.co.za. The Grande Provence summer picnics take place from 1 November 2014 to 30 April 2015, weather permitting. Only a limited amount of baskets are available per day, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
