Enjoy Seafood And Wine In A Gorgeous Heritage Site

There'll also be live music at this festival in a UNESCO environment

The Cape region is home to some of the finest wine estates, plus it has a productive coastline, so it makes sense that sooner or later a seafood-and-wine festival would emerge. And so it has: Glen Craig estate in Pringle Bay is hosting the first-ever festival, where you’ll be able to taste 70 different wines from 18 wineries and 30 seafood dishes – and it’s all included in the price of the ticket.

The festival takes place on Saturday 23 November 2019 at the estate, which is a mere 75 minutes from Cape Town. 

EVERYTHING TASTES BETTER WHEN IT'S BEAUTIFUL
Glen Craig is set in the Kogelberg Biosphere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has sweeping views of the ocean and exquisite fynbos. Organisers Lize and Hanno Oosthuizen, who love good seafood and wines, said, “We want to share this with like-minded people, in the stunning setting of Glen Craig.” This is the first event of its kind and the organisers intend hosting it annually.

All food and drink are included in the festival ticket price except oysters, gin and champagne (which are on a cash basis). Every wine farm will man a seafood stall, so you’ll be able to pair tasters of seafood with your favourite wine from Paul Cluver, Klein Constantia, Ken Forrester, Simonsig, Leopard’s Leap and Durbanville Hills, among others.

There won’t be a shortage of food. There’ll be a harvest table in the lapa with snoek, sardines and other fish on the braai (from 11:30am to 3pm), mussels steamed in white wine, mussel chowder and plenty more. Plus there are nearly 20 stalls offering an impressive selection of seafood, from pan-fried Cajun-spiced calamari tubes with pineapple or paw-paw-and-mint salsa to Mozambican pili pili-style sardines served with Portuguese rolls. Seating is market-style with a lot of benches.

ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Retha Reets, Marsha Moon and other local talents will be performing live. There’ll be a jumping castle, and kids can have their faces painted, colour in and craft, as well as watch an entertainer sculpts a poodle or giraffe from a balloon.
