Last weekend saw the end of the Cape Epic. 8 days on their bikes, 739km and 16000m of climbing! An incredible week watching super fit athletes cycling in mountainous, dusty and very hot conditions.
Monday was time to relax! A day to reflect on the week, and celebrate with friends and family! So the question was posed, “Where are we going to enjoy a day out in a relaxed environment?” The only stipulation was to find a beautiful, child-friendly, wine estate.
The unanimous decision was Warwick Wine Estate. On Sunday we called to order the gourmet picnic for our party of 12 and on Monday we headed for the winelands. I can’t think of a better way to start the week and as we parked the cars we knew we had made the right choice!
When we booked we mentioned we had toddlers in our party so a table had been reserved right next to the water feature. An immediate hit! T-shirts off and nappies on, the water amused the toddlers for hours.
With the rolling lawns and beautiful views of the Kanonkop and Simonberg mountains, Warick certainly lends itself to the perfect picnic venue. Our party immediately chose a comfortable spot. Some sat around the table, other chose to relax on the grassy areas with blankets and cushions.
The gourmet picnic was outstanding. Pretzel rolls (delicious!), cheese, trout, biltong pate, baby potato salad tossed in olives, sundried tomatoes & fresh basil vinaigrette; and for those with a sweet tooth, a cheesecake pot for dessert.
Plenty of delicious fresh food, chilled Warick wine and happy children certainly allowed everyone to relax after a tough and challenging week.
Warwick is open 7 days a week. Enquire online, 24 hours in advance or call directly to make a booking.+27 21 884 4410
