This understated and relaxed country event takes place on the eighth-generation Bosman family estate, Lelienfontein in Wellington. It marks the annual release of new vintages from their premium Fairtrade De Bos Handpicked Vineyards and signature Bosman Family Vineyards wines. Exclusive releases for Bosman Family Wine Club Members will also be launched on the day.
The 250-year-old cellar is transformed into a tasting journey of refined wines, with entertaining and informative wine theatre sessions by winemaker Corlea Fourie. A display of the fascinating but little-known process of vine grafting, a skill that has been practised since 1888 at Lelienfontein, will be given by the family vine nursery, Lelienfontein Vine Growers.
A festive food market is set up under ancient oak trees on the estate’s verdant lawns. A variety of food options, perfectly complimented by the estate wines, will tantalize your taste buds. Live music is sure to add to the jubilant atmosphere.
Trained crèche staff look after the entertainment of smaller children in order to give parents time to relax and enjoy the celebrations. A jumping castle and colouring activities will keep the little ones busy whilst Teens can engage in a friendly game of Touch Rugby, Cricket or Paintball fun! A special kid’s snack station will also be available with delicious treats such as Hotdogs, Slush puppies and Ice Creams.
