• To celebrate national Heritage Day and mark the official re-launch of the Lanzerac Hotel & Spa, we will be hosting a special dining experience, showcasing a wide selection of unique dishes from each of our dining venues on Monday, the 24th of September 2018 from 11h00 to 17h00.

    Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Lanzerac MCC and canapés and can spend the day savouring wholesome food whilst roaming between the newly renovated Manor Kitchen, Taphuis and Craven Lounge.

    In the Manor Kitchen, guests will be treated to classic dishes reimagined with a modern twist, the Craven Lounge will serve tapas-style fare, and those who stop by the Taphuis can enjoy Angus Ale beer and tasty gourmet style pub plates. The soon-to-be-completed private dining venue will be showcasing the estates’ fine cuisine specialities, with epicurean options. There will also be a kids’ station available on the day.

    In addition, Heritage Day revellers can enjoy their favourite Lanzerac wines and MCC in the luxurious outdoor wine lounge set up on the lush lawns, or artisanal gin from the pop-up bar in the Governors Hall.

    Expect fresh, seasonal produce and great wine, along with mesmerising music from a cellist who will be performing from within a beautiful bubble beneath the magnificent mountains that ensconce the estate. Setting the tone for the event will be music from CODA Africa’s saxophonist, who will wander through the audience performing jazz standards, along with well-known contemporary numbers that will have attendees swaying in their seats or up on their feet dancing throughout the day. Plus, there will be a special photo wall where Instagrammers can snap memories of the occasion.

    In the run up to the event, Lanzerac will be running a competition during the month of September with the prize up for grabs being four tickets to the Heritage Day event. To enter the #ShareYourLanzeracStory competition, guests need to send their special memory, first experience of the estate or even old photographs of the property to [email protected].

The price for children 6 years and older is R325, and children under 5 gain free access. To book, contact 021 887 1132 or [email protected].
