All Aboard The Blue Train For Mother’s Day

Our dear friend and co-creator Kefilwe Mabote and her mother Dorothy lived their most inspired lives with us and The Blue Train in the lead up to Mother’s Day in May. Kefilwe summed up the special experience beautifully:

“My mother’s happiness has always been important to me! She is the beacon that lights up my future and I can attribute much of my success to her strength and guidance. How special that we can reflect on our fondest memories together over a glass of @boschendalwines Brut Cap Classiqué, while on the scenic routes of the Blue Train and in the beautiful surrounds of @boschendal Estates.”

In collaboration with The Blue Train, we treated the pair to an indulgent experience of the luxury of slow! They boarded the train from Pretoria to Cape Town and spent an unforgettable few days sipping our best Methode Cap Classiques while whistling through some of South Africa’s most scenic surrounds. The Blue Train is a treasured icon and it boasts incomparable extravagance and old-fashioned charm – jackets are required for dinner, and high tea is a highly anticipated fixture – accompanied by our best wines of course.

During the journey, Kefilwe added this post to Instagram:

“Waking up on @thebluetrainsa is like waking up on a magnificent moving five-star hotel. A glass of @boschendalwines makes the experience even better . Life is good.”

Kefilwe and her mom then arrived at our estate via an elegant Aston Martin courtesy of our friends at the @daytona_za. The pair took a tour of the gardens and then enjoyed in a wonderful picnic – the perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day. Kefilwe posted:

“My mom and I having a beautiful mother’s day picnic by our cottage on the @boschendalwines farm. We wish every mother out there a very happy and blessed Mother’s Day.”

The twosome then enjoyed dinner at The Werf Restaurant, with a delicious line-up of farm-to-table flavours, complemented by our fine wines.
