If you are among those who love to picnic in the backdrop of lush greenery (and did we say near a great winery?) and blissful serenity, Cape Winelands have several perfect options for you. Those who have booked tickets on flights to this beautiful part of South Africa should certainly try picnicking at some of these places. For those who are wondering where to start, here is a quick peek into just three of the most popular picnic spots.

Allée Bleue

Considered to be one of the oldest wine farms in the Cape, Allée Bleue is a gorgeous place that offers an amazing spot to picnic. While the refreshing views will definitely keep the guests in good spirits, it is the hospitality and the scrumptious food that makes the picnic so perfect. Pick up your favourite bottle of wine as you look at the beautiful vineyard, and try the ciabatta with smoked chicken and mayonnaise – a happy time is surely guaranteed!

Where: Franschhoek


This is arguably the most favourite picnic spot in the Cape Winelands. The elegant Cape Dutch farmstead and winery outline the lush gardens where you can book your picnic. The elegant tables beneath oak trees take the ‘picnic’ term to a next level of sophistication. Picnics are always served in baskets packed with cold meats, meatballs, cheeses, salads and much more. There is also a special arrangement for kids.

Where: Constantia


Family travellers who have booked flights tickets to Cape Town and are visiting Stellenbosch should definitely consider picnicking at Spier. There are a number of picnic options you can choose from.
