Lazy Summer Days at Hartenberg

3Make the most of summer and head out to Hartenberg Wine Estate for the ultimate dining experience. Renowned for their food and wine pairings Hartenberg is the perfect family destination.

Whilst the adults relax under the trees cooled by the summer breezes the kids will be kept entertained for hours in the play area or alongside the river banks. Choose a table under the trees or lounge on cushions on the lawn with a beautifully packed picnic basket. All ingredients are locally sourced, free-range and complemented by home baked breads. R175 per person, which includes a bottle of estate wine to share between two.  This season the picnic basket includes the popular Eleanor’s Snoek Pâté, Pesto Hummus as well as a selection of the finest local cheeses and charcuterie with unique accompaniments such as an Apple and Beetroot Chutney. Tuck into a succulent Pork, Lamb, Chicken and Pistachio Terrine or freshly baked Caramelised Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tart. Complement the meal with a New Potato Salad with a Wholegrain Mustard Dressing or Caprese Salad. End off your picnic experience with seasonal fruit served with crushed White Chocolate Meringue.

If you prefer a more formal dining experience Hartenberg’s summer inspired menu is perfect. Chardonnay is the theme for the first part of summer and includes succulent grilled Lamb Chops served with a Caper, Anchovy and Parsley Oil dressing. Accompanying this unconventional food and wine pairing combination is a Ricotta and Gourgette Timbal and home made Potato Crisps.

For the healthier option, choose between Beef Carpaccio with refreshing Pickled Mushrooms, Rocket and Parmesan shavings, or poached Chicken in a Harissa Yoghurt dressing served on a Chickpea Socca. Great with Riesling too!

And for those with a sweet tooth be sure not to miss out on the most heavenly and decadent Dark Chocolate Meringue Hazelnut Semi Freddo served with a Mint Infused Cream.

Children under 12 can look forward to tucking into a delicious hamburger and crisps, served with a Ceres fruit juice. Dessert is a Strawberry Coulis topped Yoghurt Mousse. The cost is R65 per child and this offering applies to both the picnic and summer menu.

A perfect day out with picture perfect views!
