Tygervalley Centre will be presenting wines from all over South Africa at the second Taste of Tygervalley wine festival, set to take place on Friday, June 29, from 5pm to 9pm and Saturday, June 30, from 2pm to 6pm in the Arena, which is easily accessible from the underground parking Entrance 3.
Wineries will offer their wares ranging from pot-stilled brandy, fortifieds like Jerepigo, Port and Muscadel, right through to some serious Reds and full-bodied Whites. In addition Morgenster Wine & Olive Estate will have a stand featuring their highly rated olive products, with Le Creuset, Lindt and Montagu Dried Fruit and Nuts also on site to tempt the wallets further.
The popular pairing counter featuring some of the wines paired with Lindt chocolates will be available again, which offers a nice break from the main tastings.
Participating producers include:
Bayede Royal Wines of Distinction, Bellpost Wines, Benguela Cove, Devonvale Golf and Wine Estate, Du Toitskloof Wines, Franschhoek Cellar, Glenwood, Hill & Dale, Imbuku wines, Kunjani Wines, Le Pommier Wine Estate, Montpellier de Tulbagh, Montagu Wine and Spirits, Morgenster Wine & Olive Estate, Orange River Cellar, Perdeberg Cellar, Peter Bayly Wines, Spookfontein and Triple Three Estate Distillery.
Festival visitors will receive a booklet featuring coupons for some of the eateries in the Centre and are welcome to have a bite to eat and return to the event afterwards. “We support responsible drinking and would recommend the use of public transport to and from the event. It is also a good idea to eat something during a wine event like this, so the discount coupons aim to incentivise visitors to do exactly that,” says Centre Marketing Manager Laretha Moolman.
* Tickets are R100 via Computicket, or at the door. This includes a branded tasting glass and most of the tastings, but some of the rare products or cocktails might carry a small additional fee. It is therefore a good idea to have some cash on hand.
