Helderberg Wine Festival
Some of the bigger wineries, like Somerbosch and Croydon, offer an extensive range of kiddies programmes, live entertainment and loads to eat and drink. The boutique outlets, like Romond and Equitania, do what they do best: present visitors with an opportunity to taste and purchase their wine and other producers’ exclusive wines (vintages not often sold elsewhere).
15 – 18 November @ 9am – 7pm
Wine tasting at Haute Cabrière
Saturday Cellarmaster Tastings are edgy, to say the least; and that’s not just because they end with a lesson in French cavalry sabrage – the method of opening bottles of wine with a sword. The start and the middle of the tasting-cum-cellar tour are every bit as extraordinary as the dramatic finale.
Monday – Friday @ 11am & 3pm & Saturdays @ 11am
