Cosying up for winter at Leopard's Leap Family Vineyards


Embracing all that is wonderful about winter in the Winelands, Leopard's Leap Family Vineyards will be offering a cosier version of its Rotisserie lunch and Harvest table during weekdays in winter.

Starting from Wednesday, 8 July, when the restaurant reopens after its winter-break*, guests are invited to sit down to a family style offering that offers a choice between:

Soup of the day, farm-baked bread, two meats (of which at least one will be from the popular rotisserie) and a selection of warming vegetables and wintery salads served family-style on the table, to share. R150 per person.

Dish of the day served as a light lunch option (for example quiche, homemade pie, hearty bake). R75 per person.

Soup of the day (vegetarian), farm-baked bread. R50 per person

Tempting and decadent wintery desserts will make you forget all about that summer figure while the selection of Leopard's Leap as well as Culinaria Collection wines will be available at tasting room prices.

Join the Leopard's Leap team and warm up with a winter’s interpretation of its popular food offering on a Wednesday and Thursday, while the normal Rotisserie and Harvest table format will feature from Friday to Sunday.

Notes to editor:

The Leopard's Leap Rotisserie and Harvest Table lunches, with every detail taken care of by Chef Pieter de Jager, offer a variety of tender, juicy meats from a state-of-the-art Rotisol spit, complemented by a selection of side dishes from a Harvest Table that features seasonal salads and roasted vegetables sourced from the biologic vegetable and herb garden on the farm. An array of farm-baked breads, pastries, cakes and take-home meals is also available. Dessert consists of individual portions of delights such as cake lollies, mini cheese-cakes and baby meringues, to make an occasion of late afternoon coffee.

* Leopard's Leap’s rotisserie lunches will be closed for a winter break from Monday, 15 June and will reopen on Wednesday, 8 July. The wine tasting room and shop will stay open.

About Leopard's Leap

Leopard’s Leap was conceptualised at the turn of the century by winemaker and businessman Hein Koegelenberg, with guidance from his late father in law, internationally renowned industrial leader Dr. Anton Rupert. Following its formidable success as a wine producer during the first decade, a decision was made in 2011 to broaden the horizons and, at the same time, create a home where visitors can get close to the values of the Leopard’s Leap brand and experience the Leopard’s Leap identity and principal passions – wine, food, conservation and literature.
