Anthonij Rupert High Tea: A Decadent Franschhoek Affair

Anthonij Rupert High Tea Setting

A sophisticated and decidedly decadent high tea in the Winelands.

High tea is one of those deliciously decadent affairs that magically transports you to a bygone era (or even just away from your daily grind). Add in an enchanting Winelands setting, with a manor house steeped in history, and you have a teatime experience you won’t soon forget. Which is where Anthonij Rupert Wine Estate comes in…

Served in a beautiful country manor house overlooking beautifully manicured lawns, the high tea experience at Anthonij Rupert feels like you’ve stepped into an episode of Bridgerton. Of course, the awe-inspiring mountain views – and warm South African hospitality – will remind you that you’re right here in the Western Cape (Franschhoek, to be precise) which is a pretty fine place to be, actually.

The treats
