Picnicking at Warwick Wine Estate

Hubby, Kathy and I spent a couple of hours relaxing, chatting and enjoying a scrumptious picnic under the trees at Warwick Wine Estate    , in Stellenbosch.    A very pretty setting on the edge of a river with lawns spread out with large umbrellas, large cushions and picnic blankets.  That was our idea .. to sit under an umbrella and enjoy a picnic lunch by the river  … but it was far too hot for the three of us to huddle under the umbrella.  Elaine, Bryan and my niece Daniella, spent a couple of hours here picnicking on the lawns on the day Bryan proposed to Elaine.   They told us how awesome it was … we had to try it too.   But we sat on the deck under the shade of oak trees instead.   I loved the water feature/trough that flowed down the paving then tumbled down the middle of the steps

  2. Picnic’s at places like this are starting to become very popular. And I love the fact that they encourage visitors to go and rate them on Trip Advisor.
