Eikendal is set for happy times and high jinks in the vineyards when this prominent wine estate hosts its ever-popular Weintaufe Harvest Celebration with a feast of activities to delight the whole family on Sunday, March 2.
A beautiful setting at the water’s edge beckons young and old to kick off the shoes and indulge in laid-back weekend vibes and vibrant family fun on the farm, fuelled with live music and barrels of entertainment, all washed down with estate wines and wholesome country fare.
Conveniently situated midway between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, Eikendal is a prominent Winelands destination renowned for its consistency in producing quality wines and at the Weintaufe the spotlight will fall on its flagship Chardonnay 2014.
After the baptism of this first wine of the harvest, visitors will get to taste the newcomer straight from the barrel. Attractions and activities at Weintaufe 2014 include vineyard tractor rides and walks, cheetah viewing, craft stalls, lucky draws, golfing action at the dam, pony rides, a jungle gym, grape stomping action and fly fishing. Food and wine will be on sale on the day.
Entrance is R30 per person and includes a complimentary glass and barrel tasting of the christened Chardonnay for adults, whilst children under the age of 12 get in for free.
Tickets will be available at the gate on the day and the event starts at 10am, with the official baptism and tasting of the new Eikendal Chardonnay at noon.
