It’s almost time for the popular Stellenbosch Wine Festival held at the picturesque Coetzenburg Sports Grounds from 24 to 26 February 2017
Over 75 wine farms to quaff throughout the day
You’d be hard-pressed to find another festival that boasts so many fine estates coming together under one roof to showcase their wines and produce.
Live Music by local legends
What better way to spend a summer weekend than enjoying delicious food and vino with friends and family while taking in a sunset concert?
Watch the sun go down to the sounds of Riku Latti, Manny Walters, Tribal Echo, Mila, Hugo Brand, Young Folks, Basson Laubscher (full band and a solo performance), Ben Dey & The Concrete Lions, Fraser Barry, Newton and Aiden Martin (see programme for times).
Limited Release Pick n Pay Wine Library
New to the Festival in 2017, the Pick n Pay Wine Library offers visitors a rare opportunity to taste bespoke wines from the region, presented by the wine makers who produce them. These intimate sessions run every 45 minutes throughout the three-day Festival.
Tickets are R150 per person, per session – book early to avoid disappointment.
The Tasting Room // Pick n Pay
If you’ve always wondered which wines go with which food, visit the Tasting Room for a canapé pairing session to learn with an expert and enjoy some of the incredible festival wines at the same time. Wine and canapé pairing sessions will run for the duration of the festival, but be sure to reserve your spot in advance as these sessions are very popular.
Toks & Tjops
If you’re a fan of the irrepressible Toks & Tjops team, then this is one you don’t want to miss! On Friday 24 February at 8pm you can be part of the fun as the team go through their hilarious shenanigans live on set from the festival – a truly one of a kind experience! Access to the set is free with your festival ticket.
Grape Stomping Ground // The easiest way to get “close” to your tinder after a glass
A firm favourite (**ahem, did you see what I did there) at the festival, come and try your hand (or feet) at some old-world wine-making methods or race your friends in the ultimate test of athletic ability… a wine barrel race.
The most important part FOOD // Gourmet Lane
Grab some great food from The Gourmet Lane, where local vendors will have a variety of food options on sale. There will be something for everyone with local eateries and food trucks catering to all tastes.
