Who doesn’t want leisurely time in the garden under the cool shade of centuries-old trees! Add to that a basket of tasty picnic fare, presented with a bottle of chilled wine of course.     
The Manor’s picnics take care of it all. Crockery, cutlery, glasses, napkins, a blanket and comfy cushion. Plus a bottle of Nederburg’s Première Cuvée Brut sparkling wine, or a bottle of any varietal or blended wine from its The Winemasters collection. Look forward to a delicious spread of cheeses, charcuterie, summer fruit, onion jam, pâté, butter, crackers, and freshly-baked bread. There’s also Middle-Eastern spiced chicken fillet, bulgar wheat salad and harissa hummus, spinach and feta quiche, decadent chocolate brownies and Amarula fudge.   
The picnic basket (a vegetarian option is also available), at R700, serves two adults. Soft drinks, mineral waters, beers, ciders, and hot beverages can be added, at an additional cost.
