The Month Of Love

Did you know that February is National Wedding Month?

Not only are we three weeks into the month of love, but also the National Wedding Month. And what a beautiful month to get married in South Africa. Valentine’s day has become such a popular day to get married on, that people are booking these dates well in advance. The month of love also brings us an extra day every four years, which has also become a very popular date for weddings. With so much love, why not get married in February.

Have a look at one of our beautiful weddings, showcasing so much love. The most amazing pink hydrangeas and natural table settings. The couple had a lot of natural items brought into their wedding with flower arrangements on our rustic arch and wooden planks at their table settings. Leipzig Country House offers so many outside areas with beautiful sceneries for the most amazing photos. See for yourself…

MIXING BUSINESS & PLEASURE

We’ve observed that activities are forming a trend when it comes to conferences, as most companies try to create a memorable experience for the delegates. Employees are more involved, rather than the usual full-day conference where they are pumped full with information and head home worn-out and exhausted. Rather incorporate an activity to keep delegates enthusiastic, resulting in a focused group and productiveness.

Team-building activities are less popular at conferences, as companies focus on team-building as a separate unity. It requires a lot of energy and might leave delegates drained, resulting in distraction from the session. Minor activities allow delegates to relax while having fun, leaving delegated fresh and interested in the session. You won’t go wrong with activities such as wine tasting, craft beer tasting, wine blending, ice breakers, wine pairing or even take delegates to see the bottling process at a winery. Ice breakers take participants out of their comfort zone and making them feel part of the team.

The venue of the conference plays a big role when hosting a conference. Taking delegates away from the hustle and bustle of the city life and into peaceful surroundings is essential. Most of these venues provide interesting activities and luxury accommodation.

Contact us for more information on our conference packages and activities at info@leipzigcountryhouse.co.za. Luxury accommodation is available.

Classical Cars

We love to brag with the Classical Car groups that visit us, we had the privilege of hosting a classical car group, where Bentleys and MG’s turned heads at their arrival.

The group enjoyed a lovely stroll with the scenic road towards our Guest House. Guests rested in our beautiful luxury accommodation and was spoiled by a 3-course candlelight dinner in our century old wine cellar. The next day guests were taken on a tractor drive through the Nuy Valley. After exploring the area, guests were treated with a personal wine tasting experience by the Winery Manager before another delicious dinner. One of the guests performed a beautiful song to end off their stay.

NICOLE & DIVAN

We are so excited to share this post with you…. Nicole & Divan’s wedding was breathtakingly beautiful. We absolutely love everything of this romantic winter wedding and it was such an honour to be part of this special day.

“A lasting marriage always begins with an enduring friendship”, and we can certainly say that Nicole married her best friend on 2 July 2016. It was beautiful to the see the teamwork, affection and thoughtfulness between them.

The day started out with make-up, bubbly, fun and laughter with her bridesmaids. Nicole was calm and excited at the same time when her dad walked her down the aisle, while Divan looked at her in awe. A beautiful ceremony announced Nicole & Divan married.

Pre-drinks were hosted in our century old red wine cellar, which turned into the dance floor later at night. Guests were spoiled with Muscadel, Red Wine and Hot Chocolate to keep them warm. Lounge pockets brought a cosy atmosphere and guests huddled up to the fire place. Waiters roamed around with gourmet canapes.

A colour scheme of green, white & gold with a touch of navy brought an elegant touch to reception. The Ghost-chairs looked so chic with the flower runner on long tables. Slow braised Red Wine Lamb Shanks was a sensation, while others enjoyed a Creamed White Leipzig Chicken dish as an option. Guests danced the night away with decadent canape-style desserts to snack on.

Leipzig is the perfect destination for a cycling group

Recently, Chris Willemse Cycles had a cycling tour and as luck would have it, we were one of their stops.  Once again I realised how perfect our destination is for groups like these.

With a breath-taking view, cyclists love the journey to our farm where they are surrounded by vineyards, mountains and nature’s beauty. Once arrived at the destination, friendly staff allocates the group’s baggage to their specific rooms and they are shown towards their room.  We set up a lovely outdoor lunch for the group to regain their strength.

A massage parlour is set up in our Chapel, where members unwind with calming music while enjoying a massage. The tranquil setting is perfect for relaxation with a gorgeous lookout onto the vineyards.

When members have their ‘free-time’, they usually spend it around the swimming pool or stroll through our Tortoise Sanctuary and the vineyards.

An assigned spot is used to clean and service the cycle bikes, which is then stored in an alarm-secured area.

Don’t fear, the group will be able to leave with a set of clean cycling gear. Laundry can be handed in by us upon arrival & given back the morning after breakfast.

Members are treated with a special Tractor-Wagon Sundowner in the vineyards and ended off with an in-depth, wine tasting & cellar tour experience before dinner. Dinner is served in a Century Old Wine Cellar exclusively set-up for the group.

Heading off to bed in our luxury accommodation, is considered a treat after such a long day. Guests are enjoying nature to the fullest and still have the convenience and peacefulness of luxury accommodation. Early rise and shine? No problem for us, a big buffet menu awaits the group before heading off to their next destination.

If you would like to enquire about our cycling packages, simply send us an email at info@leipzigcountryhouse.co.za.
