Itching for grape amusement? Kick off your shoes for some squishing and splatting at this year’s Durbanville Wine Valley’s Feast of the Grape, a weekend of harvest fun hosted by 12 wine farms in the Valley. Celebrating the bounty of harvest season, the festival takes place on 27 and 28 February 2016, which takes place at the picture perfect D’Aria Wine Farm with an abundance of seasonal wines and entertainment to enjoy.
The 12 farms coming together from the Durbanville Wine Valley to take part in the grape festivities are:
Altydgedacht, Bloemendal, D’Aria, De Grendel, Diemersdal, Durbanville Hills, Groot Phesantekraal, Hillcrest, Klein Roosboom, Meerendal, Nitida and Signal Gun.
“This year’s festival will be very special as it brings all our member farms together on one wine farm, rather than each hosting its own separate harvest celebration”, says Angela Fourie, Marketing Manager of the Durbanville Wine Valley Association. “With this we salute the region’s great harvest traditions of the past, bringing together the community to celebrate the season’s bounty.
A mere 20 minutes from the centre of Cape Town, the Durbanville Wine Valley is set in rolling hills and is the perfect place to enjoy glorious summer days with family and friends. Exceptional wines, delicious food, the sensory experience of grape stomping, tutored tastings, live music by Bottomless Coffee and Newton & Co as well as the natural surroundings promise to create a most memorable festival.
Tickets cost R120 and include entrance to the festival, a wine glass and tasting coupons. Tickets will be available via www.webtickets.co.za.
