Celebrate Braai Day with Leopard’s Leap and Weber


This year, Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards in Franschhoek is joined by Weber to go all out in celebrating South Africa’s national pastime and an inherent part of our heritage - the braai.

On what has become known as National Braai Day, 24 September, the family-friendly Franschhoek-based food and wine hub, together with the enthusiastic Weber team, will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy their favourite way of cooking, spend quality time with friends and family and to unwind with their choice of Leopard’s Leap wine, all while learning more about braai-ing on a Weber.

Braai enthusiasts are invited to bring family and friends to join the special Braai Day lunch when five different meats will be cooked - whole chicken, whole rump, pork belly, lamb and fish - all on Webers. Delicious side dishes and salads will be available from the Leopard’s Leap Harvest Table.

Weber experts such as South Africa’s unofficial Mrs. Weber, Shirley Guy, will demonstrate how to use these special braai and cooking units to their maximum potential (and sneak in a taster or two!) and will be on hand to answer questions and give personal advice. Do not miss the fish in a salt crust – a real show stopper!

The rolling lawns of the estate allow plenty of room for kids to explore and have fun while Mom and Dad sit down and enjoy their meal so guests are encouraged to bring the kids and make a day of it.

  • The special Braai Day menu costs R300 per person which includes meat from the Weber, all sides from the Harvest Table as well as a dessert buffet. (A special children’s menu and soft drinks will keep the little ones happy.)
  • Leopard’s Leap wines are available at cellar door prices.
  • Weber’s range of tools and accessories will also be available enabling you to simplify life as an outdoor cook – just in time for summer!

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.
