The icy cold winter season slowly bids farewell as spring approaches with warmer days. What better way to embark on this blooming time than with an al fresco farm picnic experience at Quoin Rock Wine Estate.
The name “Quoin Rock” comes from Quoin Point, which is the second most southerly point after the Cape Agulhas area – the most southern tip of Africa. Quoin Rock Winery in Stellenbosch honours some of the early trading ships that sunk while trying to navigate the southern tip of Africa by naming some of their wines after known wrecks off Quoin Point.
The Estate welcomes visitors to indulge in a glass of fine wine on the terrace, book a stylish picnic in nature with a mesmerising backdrop or visit the Gåte restaurant. Nestled in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, Quoin Rock offers fresh-air dining, comfortable seating, outstanding service, and superb wines to pair the wine farm picnic experience.
Your wine farm picnic baskets boast a variety of goodies such as freshly baked French baguettes with roast tomato butter; rocket pesto, Dalewood cheese selection, Jewels meat selection, a variety of salads, beef fillet and a delicious dessert to end your meal. Unlimited still or sparkling water is also included.
Complete your picnic offering with the selection of stellar Quoin Rock wines on offer, at an additional cost. A vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free version of the menu is also available with prior notice. Also catering for the young ones, the children’s picnic menu includes chicken strips served with chips and mayo, chocolate milkshakes, seasonal berries, sun-dried fruit, Lindt chocolate and cookies.
The cost is R400 per adult and R180 per child (under the age of 12), and booking is essential. To book your ultimate picnic experience visit https://quoinrock.co.za/stellenbosch-picnics/.
