Holden Manz, the magnificent boutique wine estate nestled between the Franschhoek and Stony Brook rivers, offers a glorious indulgence for sunny days with a brand new picnic menu.
With delicious eats for the whole family to enjoy with gorgeous mountain views along the Franschhoek River, a picnic at this lush estate is the ultimate in relaxation, enjoyed under stately oaks at the tables provided or on your own picnic blanket. Each picnic basket with mouth-watering treats includes all the essentials needed for the perfect picnic, such as a table cloth, napkins, cutlery and plates. Tuck into local artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, juicy skewered chicken and beef satays, savoury mushroom quiche, smoked salmon pate, as well as tomato chutney, chicken liver pate, seasonal farm jams, crisp garden salad and soft homemade bread, and end this scrumptious al fresco meal with sweet delights of yummy donuts and chocolate brownies.

The picnics at Holden Manz cost R160 per person. Each basket for two includes a bottle of mineral water. Fine Holden Manz wine can be purchased additionally from the cellar.

The picnics are offered daily from Tuesdays till Sundays but booking is essential. Call 021-8762729 | email  | or visit To reach Holden Manz, turn right at the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek and follow the signs for two kilometres.
