Having a braai has evolved into a unique South African social event, family and friends gathering together to share good stories and a special bottle of wine, creating a memorable experience.

While mom and dad relax with a bottle of Middelvlei wine, the kids can have a good time too. The little ones can play in the sandpit, feed the farm animals, enjoy the open space on the kick bikes or braai their own marshmallows...

Kiddies Juice tasting @ R45 per child.No pre-ordering required for this do-it-yourself introduction to the exciting world of aromas and flavours. Blind tasting, identifying flavours and matching them with a selection of sweets. Activity pages and a packet of wine gums included.

 

Tokara

TOKARA is the embodiment of GT Ferreira’s philosophy that good wine, good food and good art go together to make a good lifestyle. Over the years the obvious connection with fine art was extended to the winery entrance gallery and recently, sculptures at the Delicatessen. Let the kids wander through their beautiful olive groves and sculpture garden before settling down for something to eat at the Deli where there’s more art to be enjoyed  as well.

 

Dirtopia

Situated only 50km from Cape Town, the international airport, 10km from Stellenbosch and surrounded by the beautiful countryside, vineyards and mountains, the breath taking setting will allow you to relax and enjoy your Function at DelVera.

The function venue and the adjoining restaurant were originally a workshop and shed.  The building has been renovated and is ideal for Functions and kids parties. Their Expansive gardens complete with a picturesque dam and stunning mountain views make the ideal location for kids parties, picnic lunches and other events. A Bedouin tent for outdoor events can be arranged at an additional cost.
