THE ELIM WINE FESTIVAL 2015
10 October 2015 at Strandveld Vineyards
OUTSTANDING WINES AND LOCAL FARE
Besides the top notch wines from Elim and surrounds, visitors can tuck into some of the best country food available and mellow out to the sounds of popular local artists. Some of Africa’s southernmost wineries, along with the most southerly brewery, Fraser’s Folly, will showcase their remarkable quality: Black Oystercatcher, Strandveld Vineyards, The Giant Periwinkle, The Berrio, Ghost Corner, Jean Daneel Wines, Lomond, Sijnn, The Drift and Dâbar. Wine lovers will be spoilt for choice with this rare opportunity of tasting the wide range of exciting wines from South Africa’s youngest wine growing region, known for producing cool climate wines of great elegance and finesse.
Local produce, hand crafted pottery and beautiful indigenous flowers will also be available for purchase. The line-up of activities includes a breathtaking archery performance on horseback, a savvy sheepdog performance and a display of vintage tractors. For the first time this year the wineries will also be offering special tutored tastings. Limited seats are available for these Winemaker one-on-one sessions.
