Venue and Function Policy

Backsberg is not only a Wine Estate but also the home of the Back Family and they have a few requests regarding the hosting of functions on their farm:
1. We are environmentally friendly in every aspect of everything we do and our catering for functions will also be handled in such a way as to have as little impact on the environment as possible.

2. Cut – Off times:
Day Function 18h00 (bar closes at 18h00 guests have until 19h00 to leave)
Night Function 00h00 (bar closes at midnight, guests have until01h00 to leave)
Should the bar be required to stay open later than these times this can be arranged,at a charge of R2000.00 per hour, or part thereof from the cut off time.

3. Noise Levels:
We assume that you have chosen to host your function at Backsberg due to the location – out in the country and so we respectfully request that the noise level is kept down to a maximum of 80 decibels measured at the entrance to the courtyard at Neville’s Place. Speakers may only be erected inside the venue and not in the courtyard. Music must be turned down considerably at midnight.
