Are you (like myself) a professional procrastinator? Or did the speed with which 2015 took off leave you reeling and not noticing the days ticking by towards the 14th of February? Is Januworry posthumously eating away at your February budget? Or are you just not that good at the morantic missions associated with the month of luuuuurve? Never fear. You can still save your heart-shaped-candied bacon. Picnics are still THE romantic go-to activities. And Nederburg has an excellent one lined up for tomorrow. (Pssssst…and because they have such huge lawns, they still have space available…if you book now!)
The Red Table at Nederbug is dishing up a fantastic al fresco Valentines dining experience until Sunday the 15th of February. They are lunch only, with one exception on Valentine’s day where evening picnics are a go.
The picnic consists of a generous amount of delicious cheeses, preserves, crackers and bread, two salads (one with butternut, beetroot and feta and the other a spectacularly fresh mango salsa styled salad), a mouth-watering individual quiche and a delectably decadent chocolate brownie which may or may not be laced with love potion, because I definitely fell for the chocolate treat on the spot. I wish I could have paid more attention to the details of each treat but I was too preoccupied with depositing said treats in my mouth.
Each picnic also comes with a bottle of Nederburg Premiére Cuvee Brut, a perfect picnic bubbly: crisp, fresh and delicious.
Picnics are R250 pp (order and pay 24 hours in advance) and you can book on 021 877 5155 or email The Red Table directly. Space is still available thanks to the expansive lawns, but don’t leave booking a moment longer as bookings are filling up fast.
