Cosying up for winter at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards



Conventionally a time to hibernate, this year, winter at Leopard’s Leap will see some exciting renovations!  The kitchen, run by the passionate Chef Pieter de Jager and well-known for its popular hands-on cooking classes, delicious Rotisserie lunches and those delightful bites for the weekly food and wine pairing, will be revamped for a new interpretation of all that is food, family and fun!

For the duration of the refurbishment, Leopard’s Leap will be embracing all that is wonderful about winter in the Winelands, with a cosier version of its Rotisserie lunch and Harvest table.

Starting from Wednesday, 17 May, guests are invited to select their favourite seasonal sides and salads from the winter Harvest Table while their chosen cut from the succulent selection on the Rotisserie, will be served family-style on the table. Dessert comes from the Chef’s daily inspiration and will be in the form of a warming sweet bake that will make you forget all about beach and bikini and body percentages!

The selection of Leopard’s Leap as well as Culinaria Collection wines will still be available at tasting room prices.

Join the Leopard’s Leap team and warm up with a winter’s interpretation of its food offering, those trusted wines and the relaxing, family-friendly ambience of Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards.

Please note: Leopard’s Leap’s rotisserie lunches will be closed for a winter break from Monday, 19 June and will reopen on Friday, 14 July, just in time for the annual Franschhoek Bastille Festival. The wine tasting room and shop will stay open as usual.
