A Day Out at Boschendal Farm

Updated: Feb 6

The WineTots spend a day out at the beautiful historic Boschendal farm


Just what a mom needed, a day of downtime at the spectacular, historic Boschendal 1685 farm, while the kids were being looked after and educated at The Tree House.

Sip on one of their alcohol-free fruit cocktails or fantastic winetails!

While the kids were at The Tree House, I was tasting Boschendal’s excellent Playpen range which is their experimental, small-production wine range. I particularly enjoyed the reds; the Petit Verdot 2015 was exquisite- one of the best I’ve tasted!

If you dine at The Werf restaurant or stay in one of their beautiful cottages your kids can be checked in at The Tree House where they’ll be fully taken care of.

The kids checking in at The Tree House

At the Tree House, the exciting new edu-play centre for kids aged 4 - 14yrs, they will learn about where their food comes from and how to care for their environment and world. They will also explore their creativity and discover how to create unique upcycled art pieces using natural and recycled elements.

The kids foraged for their lunch ingredients, made their own wraps and braaied their free-range beef boerewors on the open fire with their newly made friends while I was being treated to some wine.

… and, of course, some play time at the wonderful play park at The Tree House.

The Werf Restaurant focuses on farm-to-table dining using the best available local, seasonal and ethically sourced ingredients.


The produce on their menu is sustainably grown on the farm and in The Werf Food Garden. Other ingredients are mostly sourced from farms and small producers in the surrounding Winelands.

Fine dining at The Werf Restaurant, which deservingly won the 2018 Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award.
