Where better to picnic on the weekend than at the Helderberg basin’s most breathtaking wine farm Lourensford Estate, alongside the Lourensford Market

And what better way to enjoy these gorgeous surroundings than with friends, family and loved ones over some gourmet picnic food. We invite you to come and relax on the lawns, during Lourensford Market times (dates and times specified when booking), and soak up the sights and sounds of our beautiful estate with a food-lovers picnic basket.

Take a peek inside the picnic basket

One basket feeds 2 picnickers (easily!) and is lovingly filled with the finest seasonal produce, sourced locally where possible. Our baskets are designed for all taste buds and include the ultimate smorgasbord of cold cuts, dips & pates, cheeses & preserves, salads & bread plus hand-made sweet treats to end off with.
