Pack your own picnic basket

Are you looking for an exciting reason to come and enjoy the platteland this festive season? Head to Riebeek Kasteel, home to KLOOVENBURG WINE AND OLIVE ESTATE, less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, just past Malmesbury.

What could be more enjoyable than sitting and sipping wine and indulging in fresh bread, cheeses and our wide variety of olive products on our stoep in front of the cellar? Our famous stoep has comfortable seating beneath 150-year-old oak trees and with our three labradors, Sable and Sapphire the Bengal cats, and friendly and helpful staff as a welcoming party, you’ll feel right at home in the dappled sunshine of the Swartland’s summer.

We have more recently started the PACK YOUR OWN PICNIC service at the cellar. Replenish the products as you go along and top your wine up as you go. This way you control your spend and will likely not sit with the waste of leftovers. (Not that we think it possible to have leftovers with our delicious products, but just in case …)

Here are some pointers of what to add to your platter:

You can also come and treat yourself to a wine and olive pairing, just be sure to book ahead of time for groups larger than 4, so our friendly and helpful staff have enough time to prepare for your arrival. Willie, your hosts, will also gladly guide you through the experience and make it way more informative if you’ve secured a time slot.
