Be sure not to miss the popular We Love Wine Festival taking place on 25 and 26 August 2017. With more than 100 wines to buy and taste from a wide variety of wineries, and free Cape Wine Academy tasting and pairing sessions, this is one wine festival you do not want to miss.
“This wine event has become a must-do for northern suburbs wine fans and we always aim to bring producers from all over South Africa’s winelands to our area,” says Capegate Marketing Manager Amanda McCarthy. “It’s not just about tasting and buying wine directly from the producers, but the Cape Wine Academy will present their FREE educational wine theatre experiences throughout the 2 days. We also have brand new plans in place to assist kiddies charity, The Pebbles Project to raise more money this year than ever before.”
The Cape Wine Academy tasting sessions are free to attend but seats are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The wine theatre will present winery-linked tastings like Perdeberg’s “Barrels & Hops” tasting, Orange River Cellar’s “Create your own wine Cocktails” and “Nibbles and Wine” by Overhex Wines & Montagu Dried Fruit and Nuts. Themed tastings like “Budget Beaters – Under R100 wines”, “Sweet Treats” and “The Diversity of Pinotage” make up the rest of the programme.
Snacks will be on sale from the charity partner, The Pebbles Project, during the festival or you can just nip out for a bit to eat at one of the many restaurants.
Locker and wine storage facilities will be available as well as various competitions run by the exhibitors and charity partner.
So, not only can visitors enjoy some of South Africa’s best wines, the event also aims to entertain and educate.
