Nestled against the Bottelary Hills just outside Stellenbosch lies one of the jewels of the Cape Winelands, Hazendal Wine Estate, which will soon celebrate its one-year anniversary since its massive relaunch and reinvention. Now boasting more than 15 offerings, this heritage farm – dating back to 1699 – is offering guests an experience unlike any other in the Winelands. 

The Babushka Deli offers bespoke picnic baskets filled to the brim with delectable, home-made goodies made from locally sourced seasonal produce to be enjoyed on Hazendal’s expansive lawns. No picnic would be complete without a bottle of wine but which one of Hazendal’s award-winning wines to choose? Pop in at the elegant Wine Tasting Lounge for a tasting first and you even get to leave with a Christoffel Hazenwinkel Wine Gift Box. 

But if beer is your tipple of choice, then head to the Pivnushka Beer Garden. Expect an open-fire cooking menu where dishes also have a bit of Russian flavour and flair. Imagine tucking into mouth-watering peri-peri chicken, BBQ lamb, artisanal pizzas or pork shashlik. A selection of the finest local craft beers and ciders, Hazendal wines and cocktails are available. 

If the kids are getting antsy, the spectacular Wonderdal for kids aged 5 to 13 is just the place for them. For two hours they can have a wondrous (and supervised) adventure as they explore this high-tech edu-play wonderland where they will create energy, collect mysterious crystals, listen to stories, grow imaginary plants, cook virtual meals, climb, balance, jump, discover and have fun.

– Babushka Picnic for four (Value: R750).

– Two wine tastings to the value of R180. 

– One Christoffel Hazenwinkel Wine Gift Box (Value: R465).
