Robertson Wine Valley proudly presents its most beautiful festival, Wine on the River. This picturesque festival takes place on the riverside farm, Goudmyn from 14 – 16 October 2016 and gives consumers the opportunity to taste more than 300 wines from the area.
This idyllic, open-air spring festival offers tastings of wines from the regions of Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson. Enjoy a plethora of gastronomic delights, tutored tastings with local wine makers and soak up the sultry sounds of live jazz and blues melodies. Browse and shop at our famers’ market, choose from a wide variety of children’s activities, meander through the arts and crafts, take a leisurely cruise down the river and many more popular attractions that will be on offer.
Bring your friends and family along for an extravaganza of fine wine, delectable treats, great music and complete relaxation amidst a rural ambience of spectacular scenery and warm sunshine. Unfortunately no pets, only guide dogs allowed.
For the wine curious, there are a series of tutored wine tastings with a wine expert. This series of varietal-specific vertical tastings are the perfect way to experience the variety of winemaking styles and terroir of this dynamic region. The tastings are hosted in a marquee tent overlooking the Breede River, which is an unbeatable way to truly experience the beauty in our glasses and the surrounds.
With everything from Shiraz and Chardonnay to MCCs and Rosés, each sitting promises to be unique and oh-so delicious! Do note that there are only 20 spots per session, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and guests are urged to pre-book one of the free tastings to ensure a seat. Tutored Tasting Schedule will be available from 7 September.
