Historic Paarl estate, Nederburg, is also bringing the romance this Valentine's Day with a choice between a romantic dinner for two or a picnic basket to be enjoyed on the beautiful estate. Spend a relaxing afternoon in the winery’s gardens, under the old shady trees, indulging in a scrumptious basket brimming with delicious picnic fare. 

Picnic baskets, offered at R550 per couple, include a freshly prepared selection of artisanal bread and hummus, delicious cheeses, fig preserve, thyme & lemon chicken kebabs, Springbok samoosas, roasted Cajun spiced nuts, brie and mushroom tartlet with caramelised onions, fresh seasonal salad, and a sweet treat. It comes complete with cutlery, crockery, glassware, wooden platter, blanket and ice bucket.
