At the beginning of every year, the Cape Winelands become a hive of activity as harvest gets underway and Delheim is traditionally one of the very first Stellenbosch wine estates to ring in the new vintage in high spirits. On Saturday 26 January 2019, their pink-theme will celebrate the harvest of Delheim’s world-renowned Pinotage Rosé – a wine that has built a loyal following since its launch in 1976 as the first in South Africa.
Tickets for the 2019 Delheim Harvest Festival is limited to only 120 adults and 30 children, so make sure to book ahead! Weather permitting, the hub of activities will happen at Delheim’s picnic area along the shady banks of the Klip River that flows through the farm.
The day starts fresh amidst the vineyards with grape picking and stomping action and then eases into a laidback, family-friendly harvest feast brimming with delights. Think farm-fresh salads, dolmades, baked breads, cheese & preserves, pickles, a variety of meats and fruit. Cheese straws, olives, grapes and bread on tables will provide nibbles throughout.
Dessert will be a highlight, with fynbos cupcakes and Pinotage ice-cream.
Wines will be on offer through Delheim’s complimentary wine bar, of course, and there will be juice for the kiddies.
There will also be vineyard tours and tractor rides, while live music entertainment will set just the right mood for a memorable day out with family and friends. Rewards await the best-dressed enthusiast; the fastest grape pickers in the eponymous vineyard competition; and, the most juice stomped.
Now, all you must do is book!
