For one night only, wine farms and restaurants in the Helderberg region spread their rainbow colours in a showcase of fine local fare that takes place in Somerset West, on Thursday June 15, at the Lord Charles Hotel, from 5pm to 9pm. This year, you’re invited to shed the winter blues by donning something red – the theme colour that makes an eye-catching statement. “Taste the Helderberg rapidly became one of the mainstays on the calendar of Western Cape wine events,” says Stellenbosch Wine Routes manager Elmarie Rabe.
Wine-lovers will get an early-bird view and sampling of the region’s latest wines, and there will be foodie pop-ups by a number the Helderberg’s eateries, and the chance to learn more about winemaking specifics from the winemakers and viticulturists themselves.
Tickets cost R100, and can be booked online at www.wineroute.co.za, and remaining tickets will be sold at the door.
