A day of spoiling for moms at Laborie
02 May 2012 by Laborie
"If the whole world were put into one scale, and my mother in the other, the whole world would kick the beam". Lord Langdale (Henry Bickersteth)
Laborie Wine Farm, situated in the heart of the scenic Winelands, is the perfect place to spoil your mom this Mother’s Day.
One of the attractions on the farm, growing in popularity, is the Laborie Lazy Days Market. Open to the public every Saturday from 9h00 until 14h00, the laid back market offers visitors a wide selection of fresh produce and lifestyle goods. These include freshly baked breads, coffee, cheese, olives, honey and charcuterie. From mouth-watering food stalls to arts and craft exhibitors, the market caters to young and old, which includes ample kiddies’ entertainment.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, all moms attending the market on Saturday, 12 May will receive a complimentary glass of Laborie bubbly to enjoy. To add to the day’s celebrations, BMW will exhibit some of their sleek and sexy vehicles at the farm, which will certainly attract interest from all visiting the market.
The market which has been up and running since February 2011 has gained popularity as the ideal meeting place in Paarl. Known as the ‘neighbourhood farm in the centre of Paarl’, it is the ideal occasion for family and friends to enjoy a Saturday morning in a scenic and relaxed setting.
Another highlight of the day will be an interactive cooking demonstration at Harvest at Laborie with highly acclaimed chef Matthew Gordon. Budding chefs will meet Matthew at 10h00 on the day, where he’ll take you to market to stock up on ingredients for the demonstration. Afterwards you’ll make your way to the private dining room at Harvest where you’ll be using your newly gathered market goods for the demonstration, which should end around 12h00. For more information and costs contact Yolanda Prinsloo at Harvest on 021 807 3095 or email . Booking is essential as space is limited.
Laborie produces some of the best Méthode Cap Classique bubblies; an array of award-winning wines as well as an estate brandy. Visitors can stay overnight in the tranquil guest house or enjoy a delicious meal at Harvest.
An exciting new addition to the farm’s many offerings is Cecil Skotnes art exhibition, featuring 30 works by this highly acclaimed South African artist, which has been partnered with the Laborie Limited Collection wines. A permanent exhibition at Laborie, his masterpieces are on display in the Cellar Door, Manor House and in the restaurant.
