Itching for grape amusement? Kick off your shoes for some squishing and splatting at the Durbanville Wine Valley's Feast of the Grape, a weekend of harvest fun hosted by 12 wine farms in the Durbanville Wine Valley. The festival takes place on 28 February and 1 March 2015, at the picturesque D’Aria wine farm, surrounded by vineyards and nature, with plenty of seasonal wines to sip.
The farms coming together to take part in the grape frolics are: Altydgedacht, Bloemendal, D’Aria, De Grendel, Diemersdal, Durbanville Hills, Groot Phesantekraal, Hillcrest, Klein Roosboom, Meerendal, Nitida and Signal Gun.
Only 20 minutes from the centre of Cape Town, the Durbanville wine route set in rolling hills is the perfect place to enjoy the last summer days with family and friends. Great food, excellent wines, the sensory experience of grape stomping, music by Chris Rain and Sven Blumer, happy crowds and the natural surroundings create a most memorable festival.
Tutored tastings for wine enthusiasts is a first for the festival. Wine estate restaurants bring their personality to festival feasting with creative dishes such as oysters with Sauvignon Blanc jelly, and baguettes with Boerejongens. Family-friendly and fun-focused, the two day celebration also pays homage to harvest machinery and farm equipment.
