What’s in your Basket at Allée Bleue Chicnics

The Allée Bleue Chicnics Menu is a mélange of Cape flavours sourcing fresh produce from the farm and its surrounds. A basket for two, served at a garden table under an ancient oak tree or under a cosy blanket in the courtyard on rainy days, is the setting for a sublime lazy day in the Cape Winelands.

Expect luncheon goodies including the signature Allée Bleue Herb Salad with a Cabernet / Merlot wine reduction complete with pecorino cheese shavings, a Ploughman’s Platter of delicious cold meats and local cheeses, out-of-the-oven baked bread accompanies by smoked olive tapenade and aniseed onion marmalade. Rounding off the country feast is a traditional warm Malva Pudding, served with crème anglaise.

Allée Bleue Chicnics – Perfect for Families

A holistic family experience is the hallmark of the Allée Bleue Chicnics offering with Allée Bleue’s youngest guests having a menu crafted especially for them. The healthy and delicious Kiddies Picnic features homemade pizza, fresh sweet potato and beetroot chips, carrot sticks and a selection of cold meats and cheese and tomato kebabs. The fiesta ends with a traditional warm Malva Pudding, served with crème anglaise.

Before heading for home, visitors should stop by the Tasting Centre and Marché set in one of the estate’s historic buildings for wines to take home as well as farm products.

Menus including a vegetarian option are priced at R245 for a single basket and R460 for a double basket, whilst the Kiddies Picnic costs R105 per child under 12 years old. We suggest you call ahead and book your Allée Bleue Chicnics experience to ensure availability.
