Uitkyk Wine Estate has welcomed Pikant Catering and Events in a collaboration that will see a pop-up restaurant on the farm, taking up residence in and around the Uitkyk Tasting Room. Pikant has make Uitkyk its home from 15 October 2016 to 29 January 2017 and is open for lunch 7 days a week.
The Pikant lunch menu features hearty, healthy meals that will pair beautifully with Uitkyk’s wines. From Oven Baked Honeyed Camembert to Bacon Wrapped Sirloin Skewers and enticing salads, the menu is deliciously diverse and ranges from R89 to R140 for a main meal.
With a rich history that dates back to 1712, the estate’s manor house is one of only three 18th century, double story, flat-roofed, Georgian style houses still standing in South Africa.
In addition to the restaurant’s lunch menu, the sprawling lawns that lay at the foot of the gracious Georgian styled Manor House at Uitkyk are ready to welcome guests who will enjoy the leisurely picnics on offer on the estate. Just in time for the new season, the estate’s popular picnics now have something new to offer guests to the farm.
Pikant’s tapas menu allows guests to make a selection and build a picnic basket filled with delicious treats. With a selection of breads, meats, cheeses and desserts, there is something for every palate that can be enjoyed reclining on the lawns under trees or in one of the Uitkyk picnic pods. With spectacular views that stretch out over the Simonsberg Mountains, it is the perfect way to while away a summer day and catch the sunset with a bottle of Uitkyk’s finest wine.
