For years and a day, a picnic in the Cape winelands was associated with the absolutely beautiful and stunning BOSCHENDAL WINE ESTATE.  SW Business Solutions has investigated and inspected some alternative, upmarket and most exclusive PICNIC EVENT OPTIONS for your valued incentives and other tourist business to South Africa.

An insider’s tips:

The entire Cape peninsular is considered Cape Point Wine Estate wine country! Why not thus replace a lunch on the Cape Point route with a luxurious picnic on the slopes, overlooking the vineyards and the Atlantic near Cape Point, at the SPECTACULAR CAPE POINT VINEYARDS? www.cpv.co.za

CONSTANTIA GLEN ESTATE and BUITENVERWAGTING ESTATE amazed our clients with an absolutely amazing Charcuterie/cheese platters and a picnic featuring truly home made Cape delicacies in stunning surroundings in the CONSTANTIA WINELANDS, South Africa’s oldest wine growing area! www.constantiaglen.com / www.buitenverwachting.com

And if you would like your incentive Ernie Els Estate looking accross to Helderberg (1)alfresco lunch event in a wineland reach completely new dimensions, try the PETER FALKE WINERY  on the farm Groenvlei in the Stellenbosch area – Ideal for smaller incentives of up to 50 people – www.peterfalkewines.com

Alternative estates to consider in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek areas:

ZORGVLIET ESTATE – beautiful location for bigger groups – www.zorgvlietwines.com

BLAAUWKLIPPEN ESTATE – beautiful views of Simonsberg, good for big groups but does not have the beauty of Boschendal – www.blaauwklippen.com

WARWICK ESTATE – rather modern look and feel but really nice venue to consider – www.warwickwine.com

MONT ROCHELLE – near Franschhoek – Waterford estatefor smaller incentives, is stunning beautiful and has been taken over by Sir Richard Branson, so really quality service and an overall upmarket experience! www.virginlimitededition.com/en/mont-rochelle/dining

BOSCHENDAL ESTATE – The estate was geared to big groups and incentives on very expansive picnic grounds, idyllic with a lake, huge pine trees, with a good view of the long oak lined alley leading up to one of the most picturesque manor houses in the Cape. Allow for a long detailed pre-run on the day of the event. Depending on the group size, one may also require additional local DMC staff on the ground to ensure the smooth running and a successful event! – www.boschendal.com
