Noordhoek Farm Village aims to bring the wine farms to you in a fun, family focused one-day wine festival. At the third annual Noordhoek Crush you will have the opportunity to sip, swirl and buy over 100 wines from 20 wine farms as well as 3 craft gins from 333 Distillery.
Children will be entertained with various kids` activities such as face painting and sand art, as well as the permanent purpose built kiddie heaven play area.
The event has been growing into a memorable get-together over the past three years and for 2017`s Noordhoek Crush, the organizers have made a few changes to increase the level of awesomeness.
Pre-sold tasting passports will be available: Last year many travelled from far only to find that the tickets for wine tasting were sold out. There are only 750 tickets available and it is advisable to buy these beforehand. Less tickets than last year will be made available, so it means more space, more wine, less queues, more fun, less squish for everyone.
Food stalls and a dedicated food and chill area: With all that wine we need to line your stomachs with an array gastronomic delights: pizzas, sushi, Quesadas. All the Noordhoek Farm Village restaurants wll be open for buisness as usual, as well as providing pop up stalls within the festival area should you want to enjoy your lunch on the grass or in the food tent.
More parking available: Last year the normally ample parking at The Noordhoek Village was at maximum capacity so this year we have made friends with our neighbours who have lent us a field. Note: Please do not drink and drive. Make arrangements if you are planning to do many tastings.
As always, an off- consumption liquor license is in place so wine can be bought at cellar door prices to consume on or off the premises. The Village Restaurants will be waiving their corkage fees to promote the purchasing and consuming of the wines on the day.
There will be a live band providing music throughout the festival.
