– With so much happening this weekend and the spectacular weather we have had lately, you absolutely cannot stay indoors!
Just ignore the rain forecast, it should all be gone by Saturday 🙂
Tonight the Six Senses evening of food and wine experiences at Waterkloof kicks off the Helderberg Wine Festival. Their state of the art buildings and spectacular view are the perfect setting for an evening of delighting the senses. Friday night has movies under the stars at Blaauwklippen and the rest of the weekend is filled with activities, entertainment, food and wine at all the participating wine estates.
If Helderberg is a little too far and Southern Suburbs is more your neck of the woods, there is an awesome Rosé Spring Celebration happening in Constantia, across three different estates.
Or even the Villiera Summer Festival happening on the Paarl / Klapmuts side of the winelands which looks to be a great family day out.
Just a little further out, in Wellington, the Bosman Annual Release Celebration is happening. An understated, chic country event showcasing the estate’s new wine releases together with food and wine pairing stations under the oak trees and some live music.
Saturday morning is the Winelands Marathon and Half Marathon through Stellenbosch and its surrounds. I think the entries for these two are closed, but you can always pop down on the morning and do the 5km. A great way to start the weekend, so you can sit back and enjoy all the food and wine tastings you have earned. We’ll see you on the road.
Delvera also have some Full Moon Hikes happening this weekend. It might be a good idea to give them a call first in case the weather causes trouble.
So, what are your plans for the weekend?
