Visitors can now get their grapes, gourmet and glitz on at Gabrielskloof’s “Favourite Things Market” with a dazzling treasure trove of jewellery added to this year’s colourful celebration of all their favourite things on 11 and 12 December 2015.
Set to warm your heart and start your Festive Season in high spirits, this annual market outside Bot River in the Overberg, features all things handmade, homemade, creative, delicious, fresh and beautiful. Every last product at the assemblage of stalls carries this wine and olive estate’s stamp of approval.
A new addition to this year’s line-up with be six talented jewellery designers who will transform the estate’s private wine tasting lounge into an exclusive Pop Up Shop of unique and bespoke jewels ranging from brooches and bracelets to earrings and oh so fabulous bling.
Each of these designers is super talented and adds a unique charm to this haven of diverse trinkets and treasury. Young and old will have a field day as there will be timeless and on trend pieces for every taste and pocket.
“There’s no better way to celebrate the season than by gathering with your family and friends to celebrate good food, exceptional wines and charming local finds. Our Favourite Things Market is more than just a Christmas Market for you to buy all your gifts in one go. It’s a showcase of the many wonderful and rare things made by the talented people of our Overberg area and you get to hang out with them,” shares Nicolene Finlayson, the creative organiser of this sensory affair.
All the senses are engaged as soon as one sets foot in the estate’s courtyard with its reflective ponds and lush lawn, the heart of this artistic celebration, which invites young and old to make a day of it and ‘kuier on the koppie’. Rustic stalls all radiant with real, authentic products; freshly prepared, sumptuous fare and gourmet bites; fresh oysters; bubbly and craft beers beckoning to be shared. And of course a glass or two of Gabriëlskloof’s wines when you take a breather from your kaleidoscopic shopping experience.
“This year’s event will see all our loyal, passionate producers from previous years, as well as few new and exciting additions such as the jewellery treasure trove descending on our farm. We have something to engage all the senses.” explains Nicolene.
Gabriëlskloof’s Favourite Things Market takes place on Friday, 11 December from 5pm until 9pm or swop the maddening malls for some countryside bliss on Saturday, 12 December from 11am until 9pm. Entrance is free.
