The Elgin Wine valley will opens its doors to visitors from far and wide for the annual Elgin Cool Wine and Country Food Festival to be held over the weekend of 27-28 April 2019, from 10h00 until 17h00 daily.
Located less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, the Elgin Valley offers city-dwellers and visitors to the Mother City, the perfect countryside escape.
Here's what you need to know:
For wine lovers and those in need of a revitalising day or two, the festival offers a chance to indulge in South Africa’s best cool climate wines accompanied by some delicious food offerings, as well as a host of live music and entertainment options set amongst the natural beauty of the Elgin Valley.
As has become a tradition over the years, the participating wineries are pulling out all the stops in order to offer a unique programme. This allows you to tailor-make your experience according to your personal preferences.
Entertainment includes performances by live bands, art exhibitions, nature walks, vertical tastings and cellar tours. Each venue will offer different dishes, along with their signature wines, to tantalise your taste buds and keep those bellies filled. These include a la carte menus, farm style picnics, food trucks and much more. Your kids and pets are not forgotten either. Plenty of the wine farms will have child-friendly activities on offer to keep your tots and tweens safe and entertained. Children under the age of 18, and accompanied by an adult, enter for free and many of the farms are also dog-friendly.
