The Durbanville Wine Valley is throwing a party in celebration of the annual wine grape harvest and each of the region’s wineries has organized a series of family-friendly wine-and-dine events during the long-weekend from March 18.

Groot Phesantekraal

In addition to out-of-the ordinary wine tastings from tank samples to older vintages, there will be blend-your-own-wine opportunities, a range of dining options from tapas and picnics to a traditional spitbraai and more formal offerings, a true farm-style market and several live music shows. The focus is on family fun, so the children are welcome!
