Wedding Reception


Celebrate love with your friends and family on our picturesque wine and olive estate with the breathtakingly beautiful Drakenstein Mountain range as your backdrop.

The Wedding Ceremony
Have your ceremony performed under our French wedding gazebo, or under the ancient oak trees, with views over the mountains. There are also a number of beautiful historic chapels in close proximity to the estate.

The Wedding Reception
Depending on the size of your wedding party and the time of year, a number of exquisite locations are available on the estate. These include the Banqueting Room in the Cape Dutch Manor House, a National Monument dating back to 1823, which can accommodate up to 100 guests or outside in a marquee or Bedouin tent on one of our lawns amongst the orange trees with views over the vineyards and golf course, where we can host up to 200 guests.

Wedding Menus
Choose from a delicious array of canapés, starters, main courses and desserts, prepared with skill and flair by our chef who is happy to assist you in the compilation of a specific menu to suit your theme and tastes.
We are also happy to arrange a gourmet braai for you and your guests the next day, perhaps with a game of boulles or croquet on the lawn for the more energetic souls!

Wines and beverages
You can select wines, including champagne and sparkling wines, from our wine-list or, if you would like to bring your own, a corkage fee of R40 per bottle will be applicable. All other beverages must be purchased from our restaurant.

Fees
A venue-hire fee of R 20 000 is applicable. This ensures that you have exclusive use of the estate and is inclusive of tables, chairs, cutlery and crockery, white napkins, wine and high ball glasses and champagne flutes for up to 80 guests.

Wedding co-ordination
