Situated in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands is where Middelvlei Wines is found, which has been owned and run by the Momberg family since 1919. The gates leading to the farm pave the way for the vineyard-strewn Amphitheatre, which overlooks the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of the Devon Valley.
Middelvlei offers the setting for the popular Boerebraai lunch, a unique outdoor barbecue experience. An integral part of the South African heritage, the team at Middelvlei have taken this social event to the next level. Their resident braai expert prepares chops, boerewors, and chicken kebabs to perfection, while guests sit back, relax and sample the Middelvlei wines on offer. The aroma of the homemade potbrood and braaibroodjies is a sneak peek of what lies ahead for your foodie experience, whilst Ben Momberg’s homemade pâté and Ouma Annie’s pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Boerebraai experience in a league of their own.
Make the most of the warm Cape weather and sit outside on the sprawling verandah whilst admiring the views. On colder days the cozy fireplace inside will add extra warmth. The ample space makes for a safe visit for the entire family with COVID-19 health regulations in place, to ensure a memorable experience.
At a cost of R265 per person the Boerebraai experience includes a starter and main course and is available to enjoy on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 12pm and 3pm. A low carb and vegetarian option are also available. For a nominal additional charge why not include another South African classic for dessert – a Malva pudding and ice cream, which is guaranteed to end off a perfect outing.
As Middelvlei is first and foremost a family owned establishment, the team strives to cater for all ages, and as such welcome visitors of all ages. Whilst Mom and Dad are relaxing, the young ones can play in the sandpit, feed the farm animals, enjoy the open space on the kick bikes, or braai their own marshmallows. A kiddie’s meal at R65 per child is available to ensure their tummies are kept full (and happy).
