The new year is in full swing, and our The Manor restaurant in Paarl is ready to roll out the red carpet to treat young and old with an array of fun happenings at the farm during February:
Popcorn, a picnic and movie under the stars
First up, on Saturday, 5 February, is an outdoor screening of the film About Time, organised by the Galileo Open Air Cinema. Starring famous actors including Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy, the film is about a young man with the ability to time-travel, who tries to change his past in hopes of improving his future. The movie will be shown on big screen, on the lush lawn in front of our historic manor house. Sip on some award-winning wines, while nibbling on a selection of flavourful food. Gates open at 17:00 and the movie screening starts at sunset. To purchase tickets, starting at R109 per head, click here. For more information, go to https://thegalileo.co.za/.
Park it at the Market every weekend
Slow down and unwind with a visit to the popular Slow Market, now located at our farm in Paarl. The market will reopen on the weekend of 12 and 13 February and is set to operate every weekend from then onwards, on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 to 15:00. Highlights include a pop-up Tshisanyama experience, a variety of local flavours and crafters, live music and expansive lawns, offering the perfect place to relax and enjoy the vibe.
Singles have the most fun on Valentine’s weekend
The Manor is reclaiming Valentine’s for the unattached, and inviting those who are single and ready to mingle. Broaden your social circle and possibly even meet your next love interest on the evening of Saturday, 12 February! Expect bubbly and canapés, followed by a four-course small plate menu, exceptionally paired with some of our top wines. The sweet sounds of live music by Xander Stander and DJ John Niel will set an upbeat mood so you can dance the night away under the stars. Starting at 18:00 for 18:30, the event is offered at R365 per person. Booking is essential. Purchase tickets here.
Summer Sunset Stoep Sessions
Wine down with The Manor’s weekly sunset stoep sessions every Friday during summer. Listen to popular live music while savouring some fine wines and watching the sun set over the majestic mountains and lush vines. A wide range of sharing plates and snack platters are available to order, to round off a relaxing end-of-week experience. Pre-booking is advised.
Relaxing picnics with family & friends…and the kids
Nothing says summer quite like a bright, sunny day spent sipping rosé and bubbly under the trees. Unpack your picnic basket (at R540 per basket, serving two, including a bottle of Nederburg’s finest), with vegetarian and kiddies’ options also available, and sprawl out on the lawn whilst the kids enjoy the play area with jungle gyms and zip-lines, a tree house, swings and more. Pre-booking 24 hours in advance is essential.
Thursdays are for burgers & Baronne!
Launching on Thursday, 3 February, a mere R250 buys you two delicious beef burgers and a 750ml bottle of Baronne, our hugely popular blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This special offer is available for lunch or dinner on Thursdays at The Manor.
