What’s the buzz around harvest time in South Africa? Quite a lot actually.
Think about it, it is literally like the birth of a child that you have been nurturing for almost an entire year. Great care goes into checking if the “baby” is well fed and a happy chappy. When it is ready for the “birth” you want to invite everyone to the “baby shower”, I mean wine shower! (hehe much better right!).
So if you think baby photos are taking over the internet, I am pretty sure Harvest photos take a close second this time of year and I say BRING IT ON!
South African wine regions and farms are taking harvest festivals to a whole new level. Each one is different and yes, you can expect the norm like grape stomping and live entertainment but wine farms are now pulling out all the stops to include things like street parades, rock climbing, 4 x 4 adventures, tractor rides, 3 day festivals and collaborating into one huge event. Let’s just say, be there or be square!
Here are some upcoming wine festivals to get your toes stuck into:
Feast of the Grape, Durbanville Wine Valley – 27 & 28 Feb 2017 (R120 for adults and R30 for Children)
I hope to see you at one of these festivals. We truly do live in a country made to produce great wine! So let’s celebrate it!
