Saturday, 14 September 2013
10h00 – 17h00
Wine, food, live entertainment and a fresh goods market boasting Wellington’s ample larder of specialities and surprises as well as a cook-off between a celebrity chef and local chef promises a day of fun and entertainment for the whole family at the first ever “pop-up” Fork & Cork Wellington Wine Festival. The festival will be held on Saturday, 14 September 2013 between 10h00 and 17h00 at Kleinevalleij, Wellington.
The Radio Kalahari Orkes and Bottomless Coffee will be on hand to entertain patrons whilst they lounge on the terraced lawns, sipping award-winning wines, or enjoy the signature delicacies of six local restaurants which promise to tantalise the taste buds and complement the offerings of the Mutual & Federal Agri Wellington Wine Route producers.
Celebrity chef, Sonia Cabano, best known for her role as presenter of the popular food programme ‘Pampoen tot Perlemoen’ will be taking on local chef, Johan van Schalkwyk, founder of Twist Some More, in a cook-off of gastronomic proportions – in the barn of a local Wellington farm.
Also on offer is a wine and food pairing session showcasing the Top Ten Wines and Best Spirit winners from the Quest for the Best competition held prior to the festival. This competition represents the best that the district has to offer and was this year judged by five of South Africa’s foremost sommeliers.
Both these events are hosted by Festa at Kleinevalleij and carry an additional entry fee of R30 per person respectively. Seats are limited and tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis at the venue.
Children will be cared for in a designated play area that will be manned by responsible child minders, whilst moms and dads enjoy the wines on offer. Child minding will be free of charge.
Entry to the general festival area is R120 per person and includes a tasting glass and 5 tasting vouchers. Additional voucher packs (6 per booklet) are available at a cost of R30 thereafter. Wine may also be purchased “by-the-bottle” directly from the producers. Children 17 years and younger will enter free of charge. No alcohol will be served or sold to minors.
Festival tickets are available from Computicket. Space is limited and booking is essential as no tickets will be sold at the door.
