Bonkei is an artistic representation of a mature tree that suggests a scene in nature. South Africa has a rich tradition in this art form and has developed its own style of bonkei that is recognised abroad. We were also one of the first countries outside the East to start growing its own bonkei with local species.

Come and join this workshop with Willem Pretorius as host and learn how to create your own bonkei. Several different styles will be on show and you will learn how to prune, care for and maintain bonkei.
Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.

Allée Bleue, the family-owned Estate near Franschhoek in South Africa is primarily a working farm with nearly 80 hectares planted to fruit and olive trees adding to the tranquillity which our setting reflects.    Our wines are justly famous, having won hundreds of awards over the years and the Allée Bleue fresh herb range is available in most large retailers in the Western Cape.

We produce peaches, nectarines, a large variety of different plums, pears and most of the persimmons grown in this country.   Much of the produce is exported, but locals can enjoy the fruit at selected retailers country-wide as well.   

We are inviting visitors to Allée Bleue in 2019 to experience the seasons with us and share in the farm’s bounty as it is harvested.  Try out the specially created dishes in our Bistro, buy fresh fruit at our public outlets and collect the free recipe cards as they are released every month.
