Wine festival in Boland

The Stellenbosch Wine Festival Presented by Pick in Pay will again be hosted at the Coetzenburg sports grounds, on Friday February 24, from 2pm to 9pm, Saturday February 25, from noon to 8pm, and Sunday February 26, from noon to 6pm.

There will be wine, food, live music and a host of fun outdoor activities.

Daily 30-minute canapé-and- wine pairings will be held at the Tasting Room at the festival venue.

There is also a new wine library, where you can book a session with a winemaker and taste award-winning small batch wines and rare vintages.

For those keen on getting in on some real harvest action, try a bit of grape-stomping at the grape stomping ground – messy but fun.

There will be a supervised area where professional minders will look after and entertain children.

For sporting enthusiasts, there’s the Pick * Pay Women’s Walk on Saturday February 25, and the Momentum Grape Golf Challenge takes place on Thursday February 23.

Entry is R190 for adults, or R450 for a weekend pass; R60 for children under 18; and children under 12 enter free. Tickets are available from www.webtickets.co.za
