Hillcrest Quarry Durbanville – Saturday 27 April 2019
Treat yourself for an elegant day out the beautifully, scenic Hillcrest Quarry with some delectable oysters, coupled with a wide selection of Bubbles and Blanc choices, great music, celebrity chef demonstrations and an upmarket selection of foods.
Formally known as the Oyster and Champagne festival which was created in 2007, this popular festival has now grown bigger and better with the inclusion of a few local Sauvignon Blanc brands. The event will also feature a top range of South African Cap Classique and Sparkling Wines. Special brands from France, Italy and Spain will also be on offer.
It is said that the world`s famous lover Casanova ate 50 oysters every night before setting out on his conquests. How we adore these lovely clammy love- shell-treats. An abundant amount of oysters will be fresh in from the West Coast, especially cultivated and harvested for the Oysters Bubbles and Blanc Festival. There`s no right way to eat an oyster they say, but those who have an acquired taste for it believe it is best to pick up the shell and slurp down the oyster from the wide end. You can of course also bite into it, but only once or twice is recommended. When you`re done, it is etiquette to flip the shell over and admire its unique shape and pattern.
Co-Organizer Liezel Coetzee, owner of Deluxe Hub, says that her team is very excited to be part of this event for the first time. “We are working on making this year’s festival one for the books. We will be featuring more bubbly brands and the addition of the fabulous blanc wines to the festival will ensure a great variety on the day.” Coetzee adds: “The dress code is white and gold. This theme will add a gracious flair to the day. We will be giving away some fabulous prizes for best dressed, as well as some fun spot prizes.”
Join us for a spectacular day – a feast for the taste buds and senses. Did you know that there are 2 million bubbles in a bottle of MCC? This fun fact and more interesting info to discuss with the hosts at their tasting stations. A day of enjoying and getting to know fabulous Bubbles and Blanc brands.
