The Stellenbosch Wine Festival 2017 is set to hit the Coetzenburg Sports Grounds from 24 – 26 February 2017.
The three-day event offers the very best of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, presented in an entertaining outdoor format. Since its inception the festival has become known for the fine wines, delicious food, great lie music and fun outdoor activities, all happening in one of the country’s most beautiful settings.
Foodies can look forward to The Gourmet Lane where the best eateries from Stellenbosch and surrounds will present artisanal foods to curious palettes. You can also join daily canapé-and-wine pairings. Thirty-minute sessions will run throughout the festival at the Tasting Room, be sure to book your spot as early as possible (at the festival venue) as these sessions tend to book out very quickly!
A new and exciting addition is the Wine Library where you can book a session with a winemaker and taste award-winning small batch wines and rare vintages.
And those who are keen for some real harvest action can try a bit of grape-stomping at The Grape Stomping Ground. It is a tradition in the winelands and always a lot of fun.
Parents will be happy to hear that they will have a Kiddies Area where professional minders will look after your children while you explore everything the festival has to offer.
And for the sporting enthusiasts, there’s the ever-popular Pick n Pay Women’s Walk on Saturday 25 February 2017 and the Momentum Grape Golf Challenge on Thursday 23 February 2017.
