Just as the first hints of winter can be felt in the crisp air, the Elgin Wine Valley opens its doors to visitors from far and wide for the annual Elgin Cool Wine & Country Festival.
Held over the weekend of 2 and 3 May 2015 from 09h00 until 17h00 daily, the festival will feature eighteen wineries each offering a unique programme. This allows patrons to tailor-make their experience according to their own personal preferences while enjoying a welcome alternative to the hustle and bustle of city life.
Award-winning wines, delectable culinary experiences, outdoor activities, live entertainment and the valley's great natural beauty will ensure that visitors, young and old, have a memorable experience.
Early bird tickets cost R100 pp (over 18s) and can be bought online. Included are your tasting glass, festival programme, access to participating farms, live entertainment and tasting of three (3) wines of your choice at any participating estate.
Tickets (priced at R120 pp) may also be purchased on the day at the Elgin Cool Wine & Country Festival office at Peregrine Farm Stall. Children younger than 18 and accompanied by an adult may enter for free.
Tasting glasses and guest passes must be collected at the festival office prior to visiting any of the farms.
A selection of wines will be available for purchase at cellardoor prices.
Guests are advised to pre-book activities and meals as space is limited and payable separately.
