With our wedding anniversary coming up, I wanted to share one of my ultimate Cape Winelands experiences with you (purely fuelled by the sentimental value it has for us as a couple).
We got married at Leeu Estate in Franschhoek* and, ever since that special day, it has been one of our most special places to visit. Despite our incredible memories made there, I would highly recommend a visit for a romantic getaway.
Here’s what I would recommend for a truly memorable 72-hour trip at Leeu Estates.
- MULLINEUX & LEEU FAMILY WINES / GREAT HEART WINES
Enjoy a curated wine tasting hosted by connoisseurs who will guid you through the fine nuances of premium handcrafted wines. The Wine Studio at Leeu Estates offers three tasting options: The Mullineux Signature tasting (one complimentary tasting per Leeu Estates guest per stay), the Mullineux Single Terroir tasting and the Leeu Passant tasting. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Visit www.leeucollection.com/SA/the-wine-studio for more information.
- LEEU SPA
For the most magnificent spa experience, visit Leeu Spa by Healing Earth. The spa is set among the vineyards, the perfect location for a true wellness sanctuary. The spa offers holistic treatments and experiences performed by expert therapists. Their treatment offering is inspired by Africa’s rich and healing natural resources, with a unique focus on South Africa’s iconic Pinotage grape. Sit back, relax, and take in the stunning views while you get spoiled.

- EVERARD READ GALLERIES
Whether you are an art lover or not, the Everard Read galleries in Franschhoek offer such a tranquil and inspiring experience, you are bound to relish each moment. There are two galleries in town, one adjacent to Le Quartier Français, and one at Leeu Estates. Both galleries bring the finest contemporary art to the winelands, but Everard Read at Leeu Estates serves as both a gallery and sculpture park. Imagine breath-taking fynbos and stunning scenery surrounding impressive sculptures and artworks before you take a stroll into the gallery space. What a way to spend a morning.

With a range of luxury rooms, suites, and cottages available, your romantic winelands escape is waiting. Each room is decorated with stylish finishes and luxurious touches, such as underfloor heating and rain showers.
