The French celebrate the Fetes des Vendanges; the Italians their Festa dell’Uva, while in the lush Durbanville valley the winemakers celebrate the fruits of their labour with the annual Feast of the Grape.
Join in the fun as local wineries from the Durbanville Wine Valley celebrate the harvest season at its annual Feast of the Grape.
Harvesting the bounty of the vineyards is regarded as one of the most important moments in the making of good wine. This event marks the end of the grape harvest and the arrival of autumn with a weekend feast filled with an array of activities and an abundance of seasonal wines to taste.
The bumper festival offers visitors the complete package from superb wine, live entertainment, to nonstop kiddies’ entertainment. Old school games will keep young and old entertained throughout the day, and kids can look forward to a jumping castle, face painting and so much more. While the kids are having fun the adults can sip and sample superb wines from the 11 wineries on show from the Durbanville region. Try your hand at grape stomping, milking a dairy cow, be amazed at the latest and greatest on offer at the tractor exhibition or simply browse the stalls for delectable local produce on offer. Local restaurants will ensure you’re kept well fed throughout the day.
What better way to celebrate and feast on the bounties of the Durbanville Wine region.
