Vredenheim Wildlife & Winery

The clouds cleared and the cats came out to play....literally! Vredenheim Estate, located on Baden Powell Drive, is an estate that has it all - view, wine, food, and is a choice venue for many a bride to say I DO. They are also home to a couple of Lions (or Limons as my little bean would say) and Tigers...BIG tigers! 

 

 Gorgeous views of the Helderberg and why not tie the knot here?

If you are looking for Saturday spot (or any day because they are open 7 days a week), where you can spend the whole day and not be rushed, then choose Vredenheim. With views of the Helderberg in the distance though, you wouldn't really want anything to chase you. Hudson's Restaurant will make sure there are no grumpy tummies with a menu that has something for everything, including the little ones. 

Choose from breakfasts, light lunches, main meals, afternoon tea and great coffee. Or, make use of the beautiful gardens and enjoy a picnic while lazing under the trees and the kids can run free! 

It is easy to see why this is "no ordinary wine farm". Experience their range of wines in the tasting room, visit their Big Cats Park which is home to lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs and caracals. There is also a variety of wildlife and game on the farm, as well as the award winning Angus Cattle Stud. 

There is no end to the fun that the little ones will have, but you probably won't be able to tear them away from the play area....so sit back, relax and enjoy a day out at Vredenheim!
