Lavish Picnics in the Winelands with Cavalli Estate

Beautiful views and great food.

The award-winning Cavalli Estate is now welcoming families on the lawn of their beautifully manicured garden to indulge in their incredible gourmet picnics, overlooking the vineyards and Helderberg mountain range.

Head Chef Lucas Carsten has taken the reins of the Cavalli kitchen, carrying forward the restaurant’s reputation for seasonal, produce-led cuisine. Carstens is quick to let the seasons and the soils dictate his menu. More than 80 percent of the kitchen’s fresh produce is drawn from Cavalli Estate’s own vegetable gardens, which stretch across more than an acre of land.

Each basket is themed around this particular focus; on locally and sustainably sourced ingredients.
