With an abundance of festive feasts on offer at Spier this Easter, the historic wine farm in Stellenbosch offers plenty of delicious ways to spend quality time together over the long weekend.
A leisurely Easter Sunday Feast
Bring the family: it’s time to feast. While the Supernova band and the tinkling Eerste River serenade you, enjoy a gorgeous three-course lunch on the dappled terrace. Begin with gourmet salads and freshly baked bread before an array of glorious mains. These include slow-braised brisket, roasted leg of lamb, smoked ocean trout, a cheesy butternut pasta bake, bacon-flecked charred broccoli and aubergine & tomato melanzane. The Spier Wine Tasting Station will ensure you keep hydrated. Book at www.spier.co.za.
From Good Friday (2 April) through Easter Sunday (4 April) from 11:00 – 16:00, a pop-up braai station on the Spier Werf will offer delicious lamb tacos, pickled fish tortillas and curried sosaties. Enjoy them under this historic farmyard’s ancient oaks.
Let the kids get creative
From Good Friday (2 April) through Family Day (5 April), your little one can make their own rabbit ears and a basket for collecting Easter eggs. The 1-hour workshop starts at 9:30 and costs just R100 per child; book at www.spier.co.za.
Heading to the Tasting Room? Enjoy the chocolate & wine tasting for R70 per person while the kids have their own grape juice tasting for just R40, and they’ll get the chance to decorate their own Easter Bunny cookie too.
Hot cross buns and more from Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery
Vadas’s famous hot cross buns aren’t the only mouthwatering special on offer this Easter from this much-loved bakery. There are Easter Egg croissants and mosbolletjie bread too! Pre-order by phone 0218091137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to avoid disappointment.
A family picnic under ancient oaks
The whole family is invited to feast underneath the ancient oaks of the Spier Werf from a picnic basket crammed with locally sourced deliciousness.
