Valentine’s Day: Nederburg Love Experience


Our second option to consider for Valentine’s Day, think Nederburg and The Red Table….


From Tuesday, 9 February until Saturday, 13 February, treat your loved one to a romantic a la carte lunch at The Red Table, or create memories with a picnic for two under the trees.


Additionally, on Saturday, 13 February, Nederburg welcomes The Galileo Open Air Cinema to its picturesque farm. Begin the afternoon with a relaxed stroll through Nederburg’s manor house and the winery’s lush gardens. Then share an evening underneath the stars with a loved one, or a friend, to a screening of Shakespeare in Love. Pre-order a picnic basket for R500 per couple from The Red Table. It includes delicious fresh salads, cured meats, artisanal cheeses, crackers and bread, grilled tiger prawns, asparagus spears wrapped with  Parma ham, tartlets, and finally, decadent chocolate brownies with strawberries, a bottle of Nederburg Première Cuvée Brut as well as still mineral water. On the night there will also be stalls offering food, mineral water, soft drinks as well as coffee and tea.


The same picnic baskets offered by The Red Table for the film screening will be available throughout Valentine’s week, but excluding Monday, 8 February.

Seal the deal with caramel, dark and white chocolate tart, pistachio Turkish delight and fruit compote.
