Saturday 10 November, 2018
at the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm
Overberg, South Africa
The wine farms at the most southerly tip of Africa come together on Saturday, November 10, to celebrate their unique cool-climate wines.
It’s a day for YOU to:
– Explore elegant Elim wines,
– Taste sumptuous local food,
– Enjoy refreshing craft beer and cider,
– Stroll through a country market in the Cape Agulhas countryside,
– Listen to music from fun live acts like the Gian Groen Band, Emile Karg, Dani Vile and Borderline,
– And be entertained by activities exclusive to this local farm-style community.
Meet and mingle with the winemakers of the Elim Wine Ward at the festival – the youngest wine growing region in the country creating the most excitement. Or join the winemakers for an intimate session, and breakaway wine tastings during the day. EXPERIENCE the unique setting at the southernmost tip of the continent, and how the location crafts the intense fruit flavours in these elegant wines. And sip the exceptional Sauvignon Blanc on a bright spring day.
We’re saving you a spot…
