Allée Bleue Estate is one of the oldest working farms in the Franschhoek region and this year the public is invited to experience our “behind-the-scenes” activities at the first-ever May Day Meander which takes place on Wednesday 1 May, a public holiday.
Round up friends and family, wear a touch of red to get into the vibe and join us on this easy hour-long walk. Every few minutes you will have a stop where you can learn more about wine, fruit production, our fresh herbs, olives and olive oil and have a bite to eat and taste wine as you go along.
The day starts at 10h00 at the tasting room where “meanderers” are invited to enjoy a welcome drink and their first snack, receive a briefing and a route map, before setting off on their walk through some of the less visited areas of the Estate. The route offers great photo opportunities as well as the chance to ask questions from the experts based at each stop.
After arriving back at the main building, guests are treated to a relaxed lunch. Meander packages are for two people sharing and range from R175 pp for a cheese and meat platter at the tasting room to R335 pp sharing for a seated, serviced Chicnic. A slightly more affordable option is the Picnic-on-the-Go package which is available at R320 pp sharing and entails choosing your own spot in our gardens to relax. The kiddies picnic is available at R105 pp. The cost includes the Meander with its tastings and eats as well as the lunch option chosen.
The walk is suitable for everyone and a low level of fitness is required, but it is not accessible to wheelchairs as some of the route is uneven due to farming activities. We will have prizes for the best-dressed guests as well as a post-meander lucky draw.
