The 11th Oyster, Wine & Food Festival will be taking place from June 10 to 12 in The Outdoor Area, Montecasino. This, an established event crowned as Gauteng’s largest Oyster Festival, promises to deliver 65 000 oysters flown in from Knysna. The star of the show, the oyster, will be joined by 40 Wine Estates and Gourmet Food Vendors, 6 Méthode Cap Classique producers and Craft Beer Breweries. Festivalgoers have the opportunity to taste the delights offered by vendors before they buy to take home.
This year the organisers are enlarging the ever popular Champagne and Oyster deck to include the six Méthode Cap Classique producers with an offering of jumbo oysters whilst the Beer Garden, will for the first time, host Craft Beer Brewers complimenting the already present beer and other delightful fresh coolers.
New to the festival this year will be a space, dedicated to the hosting of an International Expo, which will facilitate international wines and beverages from a variety of importers.
Soulful, sophisticated, upmarket and varied live performances which are sure to enhance festival goers’ experience, will be part of the festival’s entertainment line-up.
