PAARL OMMIBERG – ROUND THE ROCK – FESTIVAL
8 and 9 MARCH 2014
10h00 until 16h00 daily
With harvest in full-swing, the annual Paarl Ommiberg “Round the Rock” festival to be held on 8 and 9 March 2013 from 10:00 until 18:00, offers visitors not only the opportunity to taste the first unfiltered wines of the 2014 vintages but to enjoy a relaxed day out in the winelands with unique offerings and activities to suit the whole family.
Visitors are given a glimpse into working wineries, offered the opportunity to pick and stomp their own grapes, enjoy tractor rides through the vineyards and test their winemaking skills by creating their own blends and pairing the young unfiltered wines with traditional onion tart – a custom rooted in Germany and adopted by the OmmiBerg ‘Round the Rock’ festival. Also on offer are cooking demonstrations, art exhibitions, live entertainment and cellar tours.
Adding to the day’s festivities are jumping castles, slippery slides, pony rides, face painting, kids’ croquet and rides on a goats wagon to keep the kiddies busy.
With more than seventeen wineries to choose from visitors will be spoilt for choice. Unfiltered wines, live music and Zwiebelkuchen (onion tart) tastings are free throughout the event, whilst meals and special activities should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment and are payable separately.
Ticket prices are R100.00 per person over the age of 18 and may be booked through Webtickets (www.webtickets.co.za) or on the day at any of the participating wineries or restaurants and includes an engraved wine glass, access to and tasting of young wines at all participating wine farms.
