Cape Town - Wine, wine and more wine accompanied by good food and a great vibe is more than an enough description of what this year’s Robertson Wine Valley’s fourteenth annual Wacky Wine weekend is all about.

Showcasing more than 40 wine estates, boutique wineries and tourism establishments from the Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson region, this much-loved family-friendly event is set to take place from Thursday, 1 until Sunday, 4 June 2017.

Here's what you can expect:

It will be a weekend filled with award-winning wines through tutored tastings by winemakers, cellar tours and wine pairings, live music entertainment, outdoor sports, arts & craft stalls, a variety of country cuisines and family fun.

"The event takes place at multiple wineries and tourism establishments, each showcasing a feast of unique activities planned. Expect a line-up to suit the fun-seeker, novice or wine connoisseur. Most are included in your weekend pass and others work on a pay as you go system," says the organisers.

Zero-Tolerance Policy Towards Drinking and Driving

Robertson Wine Valley supports the use of wine in a responsible manner. As part of its commitment to bringing you a safe festival, a zero-tolerance policy will be upheld with regards to drinking and driving.

There will be numerous transport options available on the website where festival goers can book transport in advance or book a taxi on the weekend.

Day in and out trips via a bus or shuttle, shuttles or car bookings to take you around over the weekend, taxi services or make use of our designated drivers. The valley’s Traffic Department will act where necessary.

Oblige by the traffic rules by not parking on the roads but at the designated parking areas.
