Enjoy a not so typical Picnic at Gabriëlskloof this summer!

Gabriels Lunch Box LR (5)

Gabriëlskloof,  brings a delicious new meaning to picnics with its new Lunch Box experience, which entices visitors to soak up the farm’s idyllic hillside setting outside Bot River, al fresco style.

Until the end of summer, this happy box of seasonal delights will lure families and friends to venture outside and engage with the estate’s beauty and bounty in its tranquil courtyard, whilst snacking on sumptuous, freshly prepared taste sensations.

“Our restaurant and tasting room is framed by a lush green lawn and glistening reflective ponds, the serene heart of our estate. It offers the perfect setting for you to spread your blanket and kick off those shoes for a laid-back afternoon, away from the maddening crowds. Gabriëlskloof is not your typical picnic venue crowded with brollies and prams and with our new ‘picnic-style lunch in a box’ we cater for the more intimate lunchtime gatherings in our quad,” shares Nicolene Finlayson, Tasting Room Manager.

At R300, the generous Gabriëlskloof Lunch Box is perfect for two adults and features meaty marvels such as biltong spiced roast beef, parma ham, free range chicken liver parfait, pork and duck rillettes, mini Overberg lamb pies and smoked West Coast snoek quiche. Roosterkoeke with artisan cheese from neighbouring farms and homemade watermelon, green fig and koeksister preserve add a ‘local is lekker’ taste to the box, whilst a salad duo celebrates the sunny season. The Gabriëlskloof estate with its postcard pretty views is a royal treat, as are the Chocolate marquise pots that come with each lunch box. Yum!

The little ones can opt for an Under 10 VIP taste bud treatment at R75 per child, which includes a ham and cheese roll, yoghurt, mini cheese wedges, juice, crisps, fruit and a selection of old fashioned sweeties.

Gabriëlskloof is open daily for lunch and wine tastings – except on Tuesdays – and pre-bookings for the Lunch Box experience are essential. For bookings and more information contact
