“CONSISTENTLY EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2016

Our always and forever favourite, never disappoints and is consistently wonderful. Food in the picnic basket is amazing, the service is excellent, ( I actually do not know how they do it considering the sometimes long ways from the tables to the main house) and wines are good. Location is wonderful and the booking thereof is easy, efficient and reliable. All round a very satisfying experience.

“Great place for a lazy Sunday outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2016

We went on a Sunday for their picnic day which we had pre-ordered and pre-booked which area we wanted.

The food was lovely and the actual estate so pretty. There are different sitting options. We went in a pod which provided some lovely shade in the heat and then moved to the grass area with their "mattresses" for a rest after our picnic. Such a nice way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon!

“Awesome Gourmet Picnic”

We had a relaxed and awesome Gourmet Picnic on the lush lawns of Warwick Wine Estate. Friendly service, good meal basket and overall a very relaxing later morning. Highly recommended also for families. Pre-booking essential.

Dear Ernst38,

I am very happy to hear you could enjoy your picnic on the lawn, the most popular spot on the farm! Thank you for taking the time to include us during your visit to the Stellenbosch winelands.

I hope we will be on the list again when you are next in the Western Cape.

“Best picnic ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2016

I came here on Sunday 13 March for a family celebration, and we were all so very impressed! The venue was lovely, the quality of the food and the presentation was top class, and we had many bottles of lovely wine (we are a big family). Our waiter, Bonga, was wonderful - charming, efficient and helpful He certainly made a big contribution to our enjoyment of the day. A delightful day was had by all and we all agreed that no other picnic will ever match up to this.

“Amazing wedding venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2016

Warwick has carved a special place in our family's memories as we've enjoyed such days picnicing on their lawns with our kids just running around an enjoying themselves that it was a no brainer for us to decide this is where we wanted to get married. It was a bit of an unknown for weddings as it's not one of the more popular venues which advertise heavily for weddings, however, we absolutely made the right decision!!!

Warwick is the MOST spectacular place to get married. The Penthouse (or the hill as we referred to it) is a hidden gem - we didn't even know it existed. We had our ceremony up there with endless breathtaking views across the vineyard and surronding valley and mountains. The ride up the hill is so much fun and something most wedding guests would not expect. It really added a touch of uniqueness to the day - especially as most of our guests were from the UK so it gave them a sense of "Africa". It's a bit of logistical nightmare getting food and drink up the hill, however, nothing was too much hassle for the Warwick team and our guests were able to enjoy drinks and canapes up there.

After the ceremony and drinks, guests were escorted back down the hill to the lovely lawns where our reception was held. Warwick allowed us to have a tent on their lawns and they really went our of their way to make everything work - they let us use all their picnic pillows and blankets for the kids tents, they set up benches and areas for people to enjoy drinks during the drinks hour. They had the pefect amount of staff on hand and everything just felt seamless. Furthermore, they were so accommodating with our meal requirements as we wanted something off-piste - again, no fuss - they made it work.

The Warwick team are genuinely wonderful. The events co-ordinator, Linda Moller is probably one of the loveliest people you'll meet and. as I've said before, nothing was too much hassle. N not once did I ever get a "no we don't do that" response. During the build-up to the wedding I genuinley felt that Linda and her team were so excited about my day - and this is because they are not one of those venues that pump out weddings 7 days a week - weddings are special to Warwick...for them it's not just another wedding. On the day Linda was at hand, working with her team to keep things on track and she stayed to the bitter end. Her team who supported her from the lovely ladies runninng backwards and forwards serving food, the smiley and very patient barmen who put up with endless rounds of drunk people ordering large quantities of booze, the guy who drove the wedding party up and down the hill in the landy, the chef who pulled out all the stops with the food (which was top notch) to the unsung hero's in the kitchen who we didn't get to meet are all brilliant!

My final comment to anyone looking for a unique wedding venue...STOP looking because Warwick should be at the top of your list!

And if you're not looking for a wedding venue but just want a great day out picnicing with kids - I really wouldn't bother looking any further. Great wine, food, fountains for kids, junglegyms, lawns - ticks all the boxes. Such a great family-friendly vineyard.

Finally, a VERY BIG thank you to Linda and the Warwick team - you made our dream day a reality beyond our expectations.
