In celebration of this annual milestone Laborie Wine Farm, situated in the heart of the Paarl Winelands, will be offering visitors to their Lazy Days Market on Saturday February 25 the opportunity to partake in this event.
Experience harvesting the grapes from the vineyards where after you’ll get the opportunity to feel the grapes being crushed between your toes as you stomp the fruit in large wine barrels. This fun filled activity will take place from 8am until 10am at Laborie’s Cellar Door at a cost of R50 per person, and is limited to 50 people, so booking is essential.
