Pull on your gumboots, wrap up in scarves and head off to picturesque Durbanville on the weekend of June 7 and 8 for the annual Sip, Soup and Bread festival. The Durbanville Wine Valley, situated just 20 minutes from Cape Town, is home to 12 wine farms who will each be presenting their interpretation of winter classics paired with award-winning wines.
In its sixth year, the festival will see visitors from far and wide making their way to this beautiful wine route.
Freshly baked breads, homemade soups, wines and warm hospitality should ensure that family and friends will have a great day out.
Enjoy live music and an Asian-inspired pork, spring onion and coriander soup at the Bon Amis restaurant on Bloemendal, a springbok soup served ‘bunny-chow’ style at Eat@Altydgedacht or a glass of warming Gluwein at D’Aria.
Diemersdal will be hosting a three course meal presented by the winemaker while Café Ruby at Klein Roosboom will go Greek with a hearty bean soup and fresh bread.
Revel in the views over Table Bay from the restaurants at Durbanville Hills and De Grendel, or celebrate Phizante Kraal’s Dutch heritage with herring ‘Bitterballen’ and creamy pea soup.
Relax and enjoy the live music at Nitida, The Mark Haze Full Band at Hillcrest Quarry, an a la carte lunch at Signal Gun or spicy chorizo and tomato soup at Meerendal.
