The Lot Info
The Lot Summary
Fine hospitality, food, wine and art in the scenic Franschhoek valley for two…

A luxurious two-night stay and special gifts upon arrival at Leeu Collection’s breath-taking flagship property, Leeu Estates. Nestled at the foot of the Dassenberg mountains, this boutique hotel and working winery recently became the first hotel in the Cape Winelands to be awarded the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA)’s new 5-Star Premium status – an award reserved for only those properties that have reached the pinnacle of quality in facilities, amenities and service.

Private tasting of Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines at their Wine Studio on Leeu Estates and visit a heritage vineyard, planted in 1900. The Mullineuxs are also offering exclusive 10 vintage (2008 – 2017) vertical cases of Mullineux Syrah and Mullineux Old Vines White in a specially branded poplar wood case.
Aiming to bottle wines that are a true expression of terroir since their first release in 2008, Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines have been awarded Platter’s Winery of the Year a record-breaking four times and received no less than 32 5-Star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide.

They confirmed their place among the best wineries in the world when Andrea Mullineux was awarded 2016 Winemaker of the Year by US publication Wine Enthusiast, followed by being honoured as the only South African winery to be included in the prestigious American publication Wine & Spirits Magazine’s Top 100 Wineries of 2019.

A private garden and art tour through the meticulously landscaped gardens of Leeu Estates and sighting strategically placed sculptures by renowned South African artists across the 100 hectares (247 acres) of vineyards, landscaped gardens and fynbos. With the pristine extension to the property, Fynbos Quarter, guests will also be the first to experience the Everard Read Monumental Art Gallery and reminisce this experience with a unique souvenir: a For You, My Love ceramic vase by the contemporary South African artist Lucinda Mudge, pledged by the modern and contemporary Everard Read Art Gallery. Mudge’s extraordinary vases captivate the eye with their rich colours and intricate detail – yet, beneath their glimmering surfaces, lies a familiar world simmering with tension.

Two unforgettable and distinctive dining experiences at Leeu Estates – one of these being a hosted event. Set in Fynbos Quarter at the foot of the Dieu Donné mountains, you can enjoy exceptional cuisine at La Petite Colombe, that was recently honoured as the 6th best restaurant in South Africa at the 2019 Eat Out Mercedes Benz Restaurant Awards.
French-inspired dishes made from local produce are served at Le chêne, multiple award-winning chef Darren Badenhorst’s latest addition to his portfolio, honouring Franschhoek’s history with both the name and concept of this unique dining experience.

Tailormade treatments at Leeu Collection’s Leeu Spa, a wellness sanctuary set among the vineyards at Leeu Estates. After savouring spa treatments inspired by Africa’s rich heritage and traditional rituals, guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the plunge pool overlooking a lily pond or de-stress next to the 15-metre infinity swimming pool overlooking wine terraces.
