Warm up in front of the fireplace with red wines and indulge your taste buds with hearty country cuisine using local produce. Enjoy diverse food traditions from vetkoek, curries and waterblommetjie soup to seafood paella, Chinese duck and ostrich and kudu inspired dishes.

Festival goers will be able to interact with winemakers and wine farmers in an informal setting, experience the intricate winemaking process and discover the story behind the bottle. Traditional dishes will be paired with award winning vintages, and the family market taking place on Sunday is the perfect spot to meet local chefs and winemakers.
