Springtime is around the corner and the Robertson Wine Valley is getting ready to celebrate in style with the 13th annual Wine on the River from 26 – 28 October 2018.
Expect to unwind, enjoy fresh country air and beautiful scenery with an array of fine wines, delightful treats and great music on offer. On the weekend the most talented winemakers, innovative craftspeople and inspiring chefs from Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson will be congregating on Goudmyn Farm off the R317 between Robertson and Bonnievale, to treat festival goers to all sorts of tasty things, including wine tastings from no less than 30 local wineries!
Cape Wine Academy will host interactive wine tastings alongside local winemakers in the #TasteTheLifestyle tent overlooking the river Local winemakers will be conducting wine safaris on nearby farms, taking festival goers through the vineyards to learn more about the terroir and into underground cellars to discover the stories behind the vintages
Other festival activities include a country central market, a dedicated children’s area, a boat cruise on the Viljoensdrift, a helicopter ride, stargazing, open campfires and many more. Glamping weeekend packages is also available.
This year, Wine on the River in partnership with Nedbank will bring festival goers the QKR! booking platform for simple and safe activity bookings, as well as the Masterpass scan-and-pay app for cashless transactions.
“As part of our commitment to bringing you a secure festival, a zero-tolerance policy will be upheld with regard to drinking and driving.” To support responsible tasting, shuttle services are available from central spots in Robertson, Bonnievale and Montagu to the event on Saturday.
