Welcome to Hudsonís at Vredenheim Wine Estate. We offer a beautiful, tranquil setting with magnificent views and exquisite decor, excellent food prepared by our experienced and dedicated chefs and professional, attentive service from our in-house coordinator and team.
Our expansive gardens complete with a picturesque dam, glorious floral displays and stunning mountain views make the ideal location for wedding ceremonies, end-of-year functions, picnic lunches and other events, and offer abundant opportunities for photography. A marquee for outdoor events can be arranged at an additional cost.
Inside, we have a large function room which can be arranged to accommodate from 40 up to 180 guests. Luxurious drapings, over 2000 fairy lights, beautiful mirrors and stunning chandeliers featuring 60 kilos of Egyptian crystals create a magical atmosphere. This converted barn opens up on to a wonderful view of the gardens with the dam and majestic mountains in the distance. The function room is ideal for wedding receptions, birthday celebrations and corporate events. Smaller events of less than 40 guests can be accommodated in our restaurant or outdoor areas.
Our antique bar, adjacent to the function room, is hand-crafted from Burmese teak and served as the ticket counter at Cape Town railway station for 111 years. Fully stocked and staffed by our enthusiastic bar tenders, this attractive feature bar adds to any occasion.
Hudsonís closes to the public at 16h30 each day and thereafter the entire venue, including the bar, inside area and gardens, is exclusively for the use of you and your guests. Breakfast or early afternoon weddings are also available.
In both 2012 and 2013 Hudsonís won the gold ABIA (Africa Bridal Industry Academy) award for the best wine estate reception venue in the cape, and was also short-listed for the floral design and decorator awards. This award is based on votes from past brides and grooms rating product, service and value for money after their wedding.
