After a devastating fire on the Simonsberg Mountain put a cork in the event for 2016,
Delheim’s annual Start of Harvest Festival is back!
The best part of harvest is that many of the farms open their estates to a good old fashioned wine stomp and Delheim is no different.
The Delheim Start of Harvest Festival is among the first to usher in the grape-picking season’s hustle-and-bustle.
“Harvest” is the time that farms across the winelands prepare to bring in the fruit; a time of joy after year-long toil and tending the vines.
“The fire that swept through this area forced us to cancel the event last year, but we’re back – better and stronger,”
“In fact, our regulars have been champing at the bit so if you’re planning to come, best book early.”
-Charlotte Terblanche | Delheim Destination Manager
As for the food at the festival, the harvest table format, one of my favorite ways of dining in summer has been revamped by the team at Delheim.
With Germany being the birth country of Delheim patriarch and industry icon ‘Spatz’ Sperling, you can look forward to a few tasty specialities from this part of the world like tasty Bratwurst.
Every food offering will be sold with the ideal Delheim wine.
Think Bratwurst with a blue-blood Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend, or decadent sweets with a refreshing glass of Delheim’s famed rosé – SA’s first in the style made with Pinotage grapes.
Entrance is R100pp and R80 for children.
Tickets include all the entertainment on the day; a Delheim wine glass; freshly pressed grape juice and a sweet ‘mosbolletjie’ on arrival; plus free kids activities to keep the little ones busy.
The festival starts at 12h00 until 5pm on both days.
