Zevenwaght manor

Zevenwacht wine estate is part of the Stel­len­bosch wine route, and is sit­u­ated on the out­skirts of the town of Kuil­sriver. The name Zevenwacht means seven expec­ta­tions, and I don’t know what the name giver meant by this , but you can most cer­tainly expect to have a good time.

picnic_eatsThe Zevenwacht restau­rant has a vari­ety of pic­nic bas­kets that one can choose from, and when I saw that there is even an option of a “braai” pic­nic bas­ket, I knew that this would work for me. It is always advis­able to book a day or two in advance at most of the wine estates, and this most cer­tainly applies to Zevenwacht.

It is short walk from the restau­rant to the picnic/​braai area next to the dam. Upon enter­ing the “for­est” one can sense an over­whelm­ing peace­ful­ness, even the for­est is as neat as a pin, and the lawn down at the jetty is per­fectly man­i­cured. It seems that even the ducks are afraid to mess on it.

If the thought of sit­ting on a pic­nic blan­ket does not appeal to you, there is even a choice of wooden benches or cast iron gar­den fur­ni­ture to be seated at, and the staff from the restau­rant go the extra mile to make your visit a very mem­o­rable one.

We chose to have the “entry level” braai pic­nic bas­ket and we could not believe the amount of food that was crammed into the tra­di­tional cane pic­nic bas­ket for two peo­ple. One gar­lic bread, two chops, two pieces of chicken, two pieces of boere­wors, two sal­ads each (potato and a green salad), two desserts each (fruit sosatie, koek­sis­ter and a small milk tart) and a small cheese plat­ter with crack­ers and but­ter. Need­less to say this ws way to much for two peo­ple. Included in this very rea­son­able price was all the braai uten­sils, a huge pile of dried vine­yard , a whole box of blitz (I’m not to sure why) and a bag of charcoal.

What more could one ask for? Maybe good weather, but even though the noto­ri­ous south easter was howl­ing, the wind had very lit­tle effect on us here in this very secluded spot.

We can­not wait to do another pic­nic at Zevenwacht. We will be back before the end of summer.
