Make your way to De Krans Wine Cellar in Calitzdorp for the third annual Orchards in Bloom Festival which takes place on Saturday, 27 August. This time of the year the fruit trees, in particular the apricot, peach and plum trees, are in full bloom and it is truly a sight to behold. The spring blossoms traditionally indicate the start of the season for the fruit and wine industries.
Visitors to De Krans will be able to experience this beautiful sight for themselves as well as enjoy a few more exciting offerings during their visit:
A first for South Africa – a Biscotti and Wine pairing presented by well-known chef Francois Ferreira will be available to guests on the day at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Pre-booking at De Krans Wine Cellar is recommended to avoid disappointment as seating is limited. The cost is R85 per person (18 years and older only).
Kickstart your day at 9am with the Vineyard Run. Jog or walk through the vineyards whilst admiring the breathtakingly beautiful orchards in full bloom. Participants can choose between a 5km or a 10km trail. Pre-enter via De Krans, or on the day from 8am. A superb selection of wine prizes are up for grabs for various categories.
If you prefer something less strenuous take a leisurely walk through the orchards at De Krans to view the beautiful blossoms from up close. Prizes will be awarded to the best photographs taken on the day.
During this year’s event visitors will get the opportunity to prune the vines which were planted by visitors to the Orchards in Bloom Festivals in 2014 and 2015. De Krans’ seasoned pruners will be on hand to provide guidance to novice pruners.
Pruning and outdoor fun can lead to working up a healthy appetite and what better excuse than to enjoy a hearty country style meal made by chef Retief van der Walt, in the comfort of the De Krans Bistro & Deli, which will be open from 9am to 5pm. Unfortunately no reservations will be taken on the day, so come early to avoid missing out on a delicious brunch or lunch.
And what would a visit to De Krans be without sipping, sampling and stocking up on their range of superb ports and wines. Don’t miss out on tasting the newly released 2016 wines such as the Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinotage Rosé and delicious Moscato Perlé.
Winemaker Louis van der Riet will be showing off his cocktail skills as he whips up a delicious port cocktail (or two) for you during your visit.
A fun day out for the whole family with so much to do. Live entertainment and boules under the vines complete what promises to be an unforgettable day in the Klein Karoo Winelands.

Dip-licious delights to ward off the winter blues
Why sing the blues if you can swing to Delheim’s Cheese Fondue & Jazz indulgences, when this popular Stellenbosch wine estate will sizzle with a melting pot of dip-licious delights, every Sunday from 3 July until 28 August.
These laidback lunchtime affairs invite guests to ensconce themselves in the cosy depths of the atmospheric ‘downstairs’ tasting cellar – snug with low ceilings and intimate tables – to sip on quality estate wines and savour the lingering aromas of melted cheese. This is all served up with the mellow sounds of a live jazz band that will keep the toes tapping until late in the afternoon.
“At Delheim we embrace the chill factor to the max this winter. When it is chilly outside we invite you to come and chill with us. These Sunday sessions are for friends and families who want to huddle around sizzling fondue pots for a taste of nostalgia and most importantly have a good time,” shares Charlotte Terblanche, Delheim’s Destination Manager.
Resident Chef Bruce von Pressentin swirls his cheese fondue to an authentic Swiss recipe that oozes deliciousness and combines Emmental, Gruyère and white wine for a hearty ‘blast from the past’. The fondue makes its way to your table with oven fresh bread dippers and vegetable crudités. Guests can also order starters from Delheim’s Garden Restaurant menu at an additional cost.
Delheim’s Cheese Fondue & Jazz Sundays start at 12h30 and cost R200 per person. A ticket includes a steaming glass of Glühwein to warm the cockles, a shared cheese fondue and the soulful, live music.
These events are hugely popular and pre-bookings are advised. Contact Delheim at Tel: (021) 888 4607 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your cosy table.
Delheim Estate is located in the Simonsberg sub-region of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, on the Knorhoek Road, off the R44....
If happiness is a shared meal, then Gabriëlskloof Restaurant, the gorgeously appointed culinary hotspot on the ‘koppie’ outside Bot River, is your happy place this winter, where their new Sharing Sundays cater for slow-cooked, shared meals a la family style.
>From 1 May until the end of August, the concept of shareable cuisine will take on a nostalgic charm at this wine and olive farm in the Overberg, with each Sunday saluting a different ‘family feast’ with wholesome dishes cooked from the larder and land.
“There is a huge difference between ‘sharing a meal’ and ‘sharing food’. With our Sharing Sundays we invite people to ditch their winter hibernation for a communal, happy high. It is all about simple, slow cooked family meals served on big platters where everyone can help themselves and share in a delicious selection of heritage fare at their own table,” explains Chef Frans Groenewald who is renowned for his heart and soul food, served with true ‘platteland’ passion and a generous hand.
“With our Sharing Sundays we want people to engage with their more prosocial selves and get cosy and content, while we chase away the winter chills with great food, wine and company,” adds Frans, a fan of rich sauces, bold flavours and real farm butter.
Changing weekly, these family feasts will range from Osso Buco and hearty sides to Tomato Bredie with tables brimming with country fare; Coq au Vin with a touch of ‘Frans’ to rustic farm chicken with tasty, earthy comforts to brighten even the greyest of winter‘s days. A large fireplace and comfy nook with sofas, round off a relaxed, homey ambience which entices visitors to indulge, recharge and genuinely slow down.
In addition to its Sharing Sundays which cost R250 per person for this three course family feast, Gabriëlskloof also lifts the lid on wholesome country goodness with a new A La Carte Winter Menu, with a two course meal costing R185 and a three course indulgence R215.
Gabriëlskloof Restaurant is open daily for breakfast and lunch, except on Tuesdays and bookings are essential. To reserve your table at this delicious destination, where convivial, country hospitality meets genuine people and real food and wine with a sense of place, contact Tel: 028 284 9865 or send an email to email@example.com.
Gabriëlskloof Estate is just outside Bot River, on the Swartrivier Road, off the N2....
As Nature prepares to burst from its winter slumber, Waterkloof biodynamic wine estate set in fynbos-covered hills overlooking False Bay invites nature-lovers who seek an exceptional experience to visit the farm and celebrate the full circle of life.
“Circle of Life” is a central motif to Waterkloof’s farming and winemaking philosophy, on display once again as winter recedes. Waterkloof offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the farm and its mountainous surroundings through a diverse program of superlative activities.
More than just a typical ‘organic vine to organic wine’ experience, the two-hour Circle of Life Biodynamic Tour takes eco-enthusiasts and lovers of pure, untamed wines in particular behind the scenes of Waterkloof’s green way of life on the crest of the Schapenberg in the Helderberg. Personally conducted by the estate’s farm manager Christiaan Loots – the driving force behind Waterkloof’s cutting edge, environmentally responsible farming methods – these insightful edu-eco tours show how biodynamic and organic farming is really done.
It took Christiaan and his “green brigade” ten years to transform the once depleted, conventionally farmed land covered in alien tree species, infected vines and eroded roads, into the healthy, sustainable life-force it is today. With groups limited to 12 people, you’ll learn more about amongst others, its beautiful Percheron horses that are used instead of tractors, to plough, compost, spray and harvest.
“On our Circle of Life Tour you will get to meet our new brood of compost-making chicks; the inside scoop on our biodynamic preparations; to stick your hands into our earthworm farm; the dirty on how we produce our own 100% natural fertiliser; and, much more. Not to mention the clean air and scenic splendour,” says Christiaan.
The estate’s new Tour With Us experience offers a more exclusive and all-round glimpse of Waterkloof by including the bio-dynamic tour with a visit to the cellar; an informative wine tasting; and, a two-course lunch at the estate’s Eat Out Top 10 Restaurant. Groups are limited to six people to keep it personal.
Other guided tours that provide insight into the farm and its eco-friendly approach include a full-circuit, two-hour Guided Walk. It highlights Waterkloof’s Champion status in the WWF Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and its location in the Cape Flower Kingdom – one of the world’s foremost biodiversity hotspots. After working up an appetite soaking up natural beauty on foot, walkers can end their experience with a two-course lunch or dinner, all served up with awe-inspiring farm and ocean views.
Visitors can also explore the Schapenberg’s dramatic surroundings on horseback. The Ride With Us adventure gets you into the saddle for a picturesque, 60-minute trail ride through the area and ends with a leisurely, two-course lunch at Waterkloof.
Make your visit to Waterkloof even more spectacular by flying in by helicopter from the V&A Waterfront. The luxury Bird’s Eye View excursion includes a tutored wine tasting upon arrival; cellar tour; and, six-course degustation menu with wine pairings in the estate’s award-winning ‘restaurant in the sky’, perched high on the hill, before taking the flight back.
Waterkloof is situated on the outskirts of Somerset West and within a spectacular amphitheatre of vineyards, fynbos and mountains. Its environmentally sensitive approach to farming, honest wines, highly rated restaurant and striking cellar design are pillars of its reputation.
Waterkloof currently produces three wine collections in addition to the flagship Waterkloof range: Circle of Life, Circumstance and Seriously Cool. The estate’s sister company, False Bay Vineyards, produces two ranges: Peacock Wild Ferment and False Bay.
All excursions must be pre-booked. For bookings, dates and terms and conditions, contact Zandri at Tel: 021 858 1491 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Widely regarded as one of the most unique arts festivals in the world, the Voorkamerfest takes place annually during the first week of September. The 21 houses in which the different performances take place, range from small township abodes to some of Darling’s grand Cape Dutch homes, and the owners play host to the guests and introduce the performers who hail from South Africa and Europe.

The close-knit winemaking community of the small town of Bot River, is set for its annual Spring Weekend which promises an authentic bouquet of all things exceptional and exclusive to this unsung Overberg gem from 2 to 4 September 2016.
Home to eminent wine mavericks, Bot River features 11 wine farms – most of them family-owned and run – and during the Spring Weekend each of them will share something unique to their ‘farm cupboard’. Albeit olive oils, fresh produce, deli offerings, honest wines, farm fare, indigenous greenery or local talent, it will be a sumptuous showcase of Bot River’s brimming ‘pantry of delights’.
“Bot River’s chilled approach to life and playful camaraderie amongst its winemakers is infectious and makes one feel part of the community almost instantaneously. As if our genuine hospitality is not enough to perk you up, the scenic drive to our Botriviera, especially this time of year when it features rolling green pastures and vivid canola fields, guarantees to put the spring back into any jaded city dweller’s step,” shares Kobie Viljoen of Villion Wines and current Bot River Vineyards Chairperson.
But this heart shaped town offers far more than just fine wines and fresh air and it is during this weekend of homegrown goodness that visitors will experience its distinct, laid-back character and quirky, country charm whilst interacting with its amicable farm owners and winemakers.
“One day in our company is simply not enough so we are opening our doors for the whole weekend so that visitors can soak up, sip, savour and share in our passions and pleasures. The stuff that makes us stand out from other wine routes, with lots of barrels of fun thrown in for good measure,” explains Melissa Nelsen, Cap Classique maven and creator of Genevieve MCC.
The Bot River Spring Weekend kicks off in high spirits with a sommelier lead Bot River Magnum Magnificence at Beaumont Wine Estate, one of the oldest wine establishments in the area, on Friday, 2 September. Local producers will haul out their ‘big boys’ from the cupboards, for some of South Africa’s top sommeliers to match them with delectable pairings. Top end stuff!
On Saturday and Sunday (3 & 4 September) the farms dotted along this 10 km enclave – a mere hour’s drive from Cape Town – will entice visitors with their true talents and tastes. This includes a sausage making course at Luddite, famous for its technology-resistant winemaking philosophy. Here Genevieve MCC will also treat enthusiasts to Oysters & Bubbles all weekend long and have magnums of its newly released 2012 vintage on sale.
Early birds can rise to a hearty breakfast at Goedvertrouw and avid outdoors fans can lace up for a guided fynbos hike amongst the Nguni Stud at Paardenkloof Estate where family picnics prevail.
Nature lovers will also have a blast at the Ecology Lifestyle Farm, with specials on fynbos plants at their nursery and Paardenkloof wine tastings and pairings to coax the senses. Or why not fill your own picnic basket, with fresh farm goodies, all served up with live music and a petting zoo for the kids.
Other delicious lunch destinations en route include Forage Restaurant at Wildekrans where the chef roams the pastures and forages for fresh ingredients to offer an indigenous dining experience.
Gabriëlskloof, nestle atop a hill with awe-inspiring views of the Overberg, is another must-visit during your spring-capades as they are famous for hearty, slow-cooked meals Gran would be proud of. During the Spring Weekend they will also be experimenting with tasty pickles and preserves in their kitchen, sell it in their deli and pair it with their elegant wines in the tasting room. #yumbucket.
Child-friendly hosts for the weekend include Beaumont Estate, where a pink sweet stall, pink kiddies bowling action, a playground and tractor rides will keep the little ones entertained whilst adults can feast on gorgeous jewellery, plant and produce boxes, delicious food and stellar wines. Barton Estate, all decked out with a jumping castle and tractor rides, will tempt passersby with complimentary canapé and wine or beer pairings and a wine blending competition.
A highlight event of the Spring Weekend will take place at Maramanna Polo Estate on the Saturday evening where a Pink Gin and Bubble Polo affair will end off the day’s entertainment with fun-loving action, locally made gin and a bubbly bar.
“We will have some bubble soccer on the go for those who are up for a quick game of ‘inflated’ action. You know those big bubbles kids usually play with on water. Imaging those… but with adults in them, trying to kick a goal through the posts. It should make for some hilarious viewing while we all sip on flutes of bubbly and G&T’s,” chuckles Penny Verburg of Luddite Wines.
The Spring Weekend 2016 promises Bot River bliss at its best and all farms will be open from 10am until 4pm on both days. Tickets are available at www.quicket.co.za and a weekend pass costs R100 per adult which includes a wine glass; an informative booklet to be collected at the tourism office opposite the local hotel, and two days of bountiful discoveries.

Tickets for the Pink Gin and Bubble Polo sunset party which starts at 5pm cost R150 per head and include a welcome drink, a happy box of spring snacks and the bubble soccer action.

While the thought of Italian food may conjure up pizzas and pastas, the heart of Italian cuisine is really about so much more. Chef HW Pieterse and his culinary team at Anthonij Rupert Wyne, in collaboration with renowned chef Fiamma Swainston, invite you to take a journey of culinary discovery as they treat your taste buds to an authentic Italian evening on Friday, 9 September. Leave your expectations at home and bring your curiosity along for an evening that celebrates the soul of Italian dining.
Fiamma, whose late father is Frank Swainston of Constantia Uitsig fame, attributes her earliest culinary inspiration to her passionate Italian grandmother. Surrounded by influential people with a great love for food and cooking, it’s no surprise that Fiamma spent her formative years developing her own career in restaurant kitchens, cultivating her love for Italian cooking and honing her impressive knowledge of the country’s traditional and regional cuisines.
Together with Fiamma, chef HW and his team will showcase a modern menu which remains true to its northern rural Italian heritage: focusing on flavour, quality locally-sourced ingredients and refined simplicity. Each dish will be carefully matched with wines from Anthonij Rupert Wyne’s Italian-inspired Terra del Capo range.
The evening’s menu begins with hot fried tartines (mini toasts), with piquant fillings of anchovy, homemade pickled vegetables and olive tapenade (produced from L’Ormarins estate olives). Next, enjoy a trio of starters with porcini mushroom flan, roasted bone marrow and a pickled mushroom salad. The main course of creamy, slow-braised oxtail risotto with oxtail croquette and gremolata will transport you to a family dinner table in northern Italy. The dinner concludes with a decadent chocolate and amaretti pudding, and crisp fried sweet pastry ribbons to dip in your espresso.
The cost is R550 per person and includes the four-course meal, as well as all wines. Seating is limited to 30 people and pre-booking is strongly advised. For queries and bookings contact 021 874 9024 or firstname.lastname@example.org....

The Darling Wildflower Society has been around now for more than a century and the Society’s Show takes place annually over the third weekend in September. It celebrates an integral part of the Cape Fynbos Kingdom comprising of Renosterveld, Rietveld, Sandveld, and Strandveld where more than 1200 different species of flowers can be found.
The Darling Wildflower Society has held a show virtually every year since that first show in 1917. The ideals expressed by the founders still hold true today. They wanted to display Darling’s God-given wealth for the world to see. At the same time they promoted the conservation of flowers amongst the farmers of the district, who have since maintained the botanical diversity of the region over several generations.
The West Coast flower region, an integral part of the Cape Fynbos Kingdom, boasts more than 1200 species of flowering plants. About 80 of these are endemic to the West Coast and known nowhere else. The rich flora of the West Coast occurs on mainly three different soil types, culminating in three distinctive vegetation types, namely, Strandveld, Renosterveld and Sandveld. Darling lies within the Cape West Coast Biosphere reserve in the centre of the threatened lowland sandplain and renosterveld fynbos.
Darling’s veld is unique in that it consists of an intermingling of various veld types. This situation is found nowhere else in the world. The Cape Floral Kingdom, with more than 12 000 species, is also the richest in species diversity. It is astounding that Darling contains more than 10% of the species count of the Cape Floral Kingdom in less than 1% of the area. If there was ever a “Golden Mile” of the plant kingdom anywhere in the world, it must surely exist in Darling. If there was ever a “Most Threatened” area in the world, likewise.
This year’s show will be the 99th, building towards the Centenary Show next year. The theme this year is ‘The Weather & The Wildflowers’ to demonstrate to visitors the impact which weather has on our flora, especially in the Darling region.
The Flower Show will be offering a variety of activities to entertain young and old, and on Friday, 18th September, entrance for pensioners will be only R30! Your ticket includes entry to the Landscaped Hall depicting the flowers of the area in their natural habitat; a free ride on a tractor-drawn wagon to see the pristine wetland at Oude Post which is not normally accessible to the public and may only be visited during the Show; a Craft & Gourmet Food Market; Veteran Tractor/Car Display; an Entertainment Tent featuring live music from the famous Swartland band, Klassik and other local acts, with safe and secure parking for vehicles.
With more than 100 food and craft stalls, everyone’s taste buds and shopping needs will be catered for! Kids will have a weekend of fun in the playpark area with entertainment ranging from face-painting to rides, whilst adults can relax in the Mini Wine Route & Beer Tent. In addition there will be a shuttle driving through Darling, and stopping at places of interest. Your entrance fee to the Darling Wildflower Show will help to conserve our endangered floral kingdom for future generations.
