Alto Wine Estate, situated along the elevated northern slopes of the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch, is celebrating summer with a series of Friday Sunset Rouge Evenings, starting on Friday 8 February — a red affair with live entertainment, warm summer laughter and a view like no other.
On Friday evenings guests are encouraged to laze on the lawns in front of the estate’s tasting lounge, from where the lush vine-covered valley drops away into distant hills. With sunset views of Table Mountain and the range of peaks aligned along the Westward curve of False Bay, visitors can relax and enjoy live music whilst sipping on Alto’s iconic red wines.
Alto has earned its reputation over close to a century as one of South Africa’s most respected red wine estates. Precise understanding of the terroir and the vines that thrive here has been shaped over generations and led to just five varieties being grown on the estate.
Entry to the Friday Sunset Rouge Evenings is free of charge; a complimentary glass of Alto Cabernet Rosé 2018 will be served on arrival. The evenings will kick off at 17:00 and continue until 20:00, weather permitting. As Alto wines will be on sale, guests are not permitted to bring their own alcohol; guests are however welcome to arrive an hour early should they be interested in a quick tasting before the first set starts. Cheese platters will also be available at R140 per platter, but be sure to book yours in advance!
Raise your glass and join in the cheers as Alto Wine Estate toasts to Fridays – this celebration of great wine and company offers a fantastic reason to visit Alto and experience the home of Alto wines.
