Fine food and wine are amongst the defining passions that drive Grande Provence and this is evident once you taste the exquisite flavours of the cuisine and savour the award-winning wines.
Grande Provence Estate is a place where the past and the present seamlessly converge, creating a harmonious blend of history and modernity.
The 18th-century Manor House and The Owner's Cottage stand as proud reminders of their Huguenot heritage, each exuding the timeless charm and elegance of a bygone era. These architectural treasures provide a glimpse into the history of the estate, where the legacy of the Huguenots lives on.
In contrast, The Restaurant and the wine tasting area at Grande Provence project a chic and contemporary industrial presence. These spaces are a testament to the estate's ability to evolve with the times while retaining its commitment to excellence. Here, you'll find a modern ambiance that perfectly complements the heritage of the estate.
This seamless fusion of the old and the new creates a unique and captivating atmosphere at Grande Provence, where history and innovation coexist, inviting guests to explore, indulge, and appreciate the rich tapestry of experiences that the estate has to offer. It's a place where tradition and progress come together to create something truly extraordinary.
The Bistro is a casual, yet contemporary eatery and the perfect destination for anyone in pursuit of a top-tier Cape wine farm experience but with meals taken in a more relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.
Having said that, it doesn’t compromise luxury for accessibility, and we found the service exceptional, the tables beautifully decked, and the décor striking the perfect balance between casual and sophisticated.
Our Head Chef Marvin Robyn designed an easy style simplistic menu that caters for all.
