This historic estate is the picturesque setting for these laidback Sunday afternoon concerts.

Rolling lawns and majestic views of the surrounding Simonsberg Mountain range… there’s hardly a more relaxing and picturesque setting for a Sunday afternoon wind-down. Add superb food, excellent wine, and the live, laidback tunes of some cool local bands, and you have all the makings of a picture-perfect picnic.  

Food, glorious food

If you’d prefer not to deal with queues and the like, book the picnic basket-and-concert ticket combo (R230 online). Then, sit back and enjoy your ready-made feast (filled to the brim with freshly baked bread, quiche, charcuterie, local cheese, olives, pâtés, preserves, pinotage onion relish, pickles, a chef’s salad, a chocolate brownie and fresh seasonal fruit salad), while the smaller members of your crew enjoy a jumping castle and other lawn games.

Alternatively, purchase a regular ticket (R120 online; R150 at the gate) and enjoy a selection of street food-style eats, such as wraps, burgers and fries, as well as wine, beer and cider – all of which will be available to purchase onsite.
