What are the logistics of the festival?
The festival does not take place at a centralised venue. Festival goers drive from venue to venue (or make use of a shuttle or cab service). This offers each festival goer the opportunity to experience the unique, authentic character and country charm that the Robertson Wine Valley has to offer first-hand.

    • Join thousands of other wine lovers meandering between estates, sampling sublime vintages, meeting the knowledgeable winemakers, taking part in tutored tastings and embracing country life.

    WINE

    • Local olives | Cheese | Charcuterie | Preserves | Hearty soups | Roosterkoeke | Vetkoeke | Freshly baked bread | Home-made jams | Farmstyle breakfasts | Fresh produce | Family recipe dishes | Canapes | Gourmet platters | Locally made treats and more!

    FOOD

    • Each of the wineries will have a feast of special activities planned. Most are included in your weekend pass, others work as a pay as you go. For music enthusiasts enjoy live music such as Afrikaans, blues, folk, country and classic, local artists and more. Multiple outdoor adventures such as golf, horseshoe throw, vineyard trail run, colour run, MTB rides, shot for shot chip challenges to name a few. For the romantic at heart go for a massage, seal your love at the love lock wall, dance the night away or enjoy wine in front of a fireplace.

    ENTERTAINMENT

    • We cater for the whole family. Jungle gyms, ball sports, jumping castles, giant chess, face painting, petting zoo, tractor rides even non-alcoholic food and wine pairings.

    KIDS

    • Robertson Wine Valley supports the use of wine in a responsible manner. As part of our commitment to bring you a safe festival, a zero tolerance policy will be upheld with regards to drinking and driving. Assign a designated driver, support local taxi’s or book shuttles. The valley’s Traffic Department will act where necessary. Oblige by the traffic rules by not parking on the roads but at the designated parking areas.

    RESPONSIBLE TASTING

    • Buy your ticket through WebTickets, choose the winery that will be your first stop. When you arrive, exchange your WebTicket at your first stop for your Wacky Passport consisting of your wine glass, water bottle, wristband, programme and coupons.
