Say Cheers on the Breede River in the Robertson Wine Valley

Expert Wine Pairing, Food, Zorbing and Good Times at Wine on the River

Take a journey to the country on the panoramic Route 62 because the Robertson Wine Valley is celebrating its 14th Wine on the River festival on 11–13 October 2019.

Over the weekend, winemakers, craftspeople and local chefs will meet outdoors on the banks of the Breede River in one central location, Goudmyn Farm off the R317 (between Robertson and Bonnievale). The festival puts the spotlight on fine wines from over 20 different wine farms. Use your wine tasting coupons to discover new wines and stock up on your favourites at the wine boutique.

A FIESTA FILLED WITH FAMILY FUN 
A dedicated children’s area will offer activities for all ages such as Zorbing (rolling inside a plastic orb),  jumping castles and a nanny area hosted by the Herberg Kinderhuis. Proceeds will go to this charity.

Meander through stalls showcasing local produce and ready-to-eat food including seafood, burgers, sweet delights, savoury treats and something for the little ones. You may interact with winemakers, meander through arts and crafts on display, shop local produce and appreciate wine on the grass or seated areas as you listen to live music by local bands such as Zolani Youth Choir. 

The boat cruise offers leisurely river trips and the wine safari ride will take you to nearby farms for a visit. Wine on the River supports responsible wine tasting by providing shuttle services from central spots in the five towns in the valley over the weekend. You can book services and activities at the festival or pre-book online at the online activity bridge
