Celebrate the start of 2016 in relaxed sophistication at the annual Riesling & Rarities Rock Festival, Saturday, 23 January 2016. Hartenberg Wine Estate, world-renowned for their superb range of Rieslings, hosts this intimate event, which gives visitors the opportunity to taste the finest Rieslings and other niche varietals South Africa has to offer.
Celebrated Hartenberg winemaker, Carl Shultz, regarded as one of the country’s finest Riesling masters, has invited the crème de la crème of cellars to showcase their premium Weisser/Rhine Rieslings at this social calendar highlight. Not only do visitors get a chance to taste this underrated varietal, but they will also be treated to a line up of other rare varietals too. These include Semillon, Viognier and Gewürztraminer, amongst others. The festival is the perfect platform to showcase these rare varieties produced from South Africa’s diverse wine regions.
A niche yet premium varietal, Riesling is probably one of the most versatile of all wines, and works perfectly with just about any type of food. Ranging from sushi to oysters and antipasti, Riesling creates the perfect balance between food and wine. A culinary match made in heaven!
And that is exactly what the day is about. Superb wines, delicious deli fare and live entertainment. The perfect day out in the Winelands for young and old. Hartenberg’s indulgent picnic baskets, which can be pre-booked at R175 per person, create for the ultimate relaxed food and wine experience.
Without a doubt the finest summer event perfectly suited to the long summer days in January, festivalgoers will be able to sample these fine wines between 12pm and 5pm on the day. Tickets cost R150 per person, which can be pre-booked via www.webtickets.co.za. Your ticket includes all tastings as well as a complimentary tasting glass.
