Looking up towards the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, The Vineyard has always been a romantic destination, and never more so than on Valentine’s Day. And it’s not only lovers who love Valentine’s at The Vineyard. On 14 February, diners at the 219-year-old estate can choose between the annual petal-strewn Valentine’s Picnic beside the Liesbeek River, or dinner inside at The Square restaurant.
The menu for the picnic baskets include Dalewood mini camembert, sweet chilli cream cheese, gorgonzola, preserves and health seed bread; hot-smoked salmon, baby potato salad with dill gribiche; smoked roast beef, carrots, sprouts, cucumbers, coriander and noodles with botanical dressing and a crisp baguette; olives, artichokes, roast peppers and aubergine with basil pesto and rissoni; country-style duck terrine, chicken and tarragon galantine, pickles and crackers … For the sharing, the dipping dessert this year is chocolate Nachtmusik fondue with berries, shortbread, truffles, macaroons and Meringue kisses. There’s also a bottle of wine tucked into the basket.
The Valentine’s Picnic at the River is R 650 per person; Valentine’s Dinner at The Square is R 495 per person.
