Enjoy a romantic picnic or dinner at this view-drenched estate in Paarl.
Let romance and good food take centre stage at The Manor this Valentine’s weekend. With breathtaking views of the Drakenstein mountains and the farm’s vineyards and gardens beyond, the beautifully reimagined manor house is the perfect spot to treat yourself and your loved one(s) to a laidback picnic or a dreamy candlelit dinner.
Picnic for two
Enjoy a romantic open-air picnic on the lawns in front of The Manor. Your hamper includes a selection of local cheeses, charcuterie, olives, pickles, nuts, hummus and freshly baked rolls to start, with roasted baby chicken, caramelised new potatoes and a crisp salad for mains, and a deliciously decadent chocolate brownie for dessert. A bottle of Nederburg Première Cuvée Bru is included to toast the occasion.
Cost R460 for two
A lavish dinner
Opt for a Journey of Flavours dinner at The Manor – either inside or on the stoep – where you will be treated to canapés on arrival, followed by a starter of smoked salmon roulade with candied orange and pink peppercorn fraiche. The main course is a choice or either beef fillet served with butternut atchar, sumac-roasted cauliflower purée, free-range quail egg, Madagascan vanilla butter pommes fondant and pan-tossed spinach; or fresh linefish with a salt-and-vinegar cigar and a kelp and Parmesan crisp with homemade tartar sauce.
End off the spectacular meal with a chocolate mint sponge, Baronne-poached baby apple, a white-chocolate macaroon, and dark chocolate and orange mousse, followed by after-dinner coffee and tea served with petit fours.
Date Friday, 12 February & Monday, 15 February
Cost R900 per couple
R650 per couple (excluding canapés on arrival and petit fours)
