We Love Wine At Cape Gate Gears Up For Annual Wine Extravaganza


14 August 2017  -  We Love Wine at Cape Gate

Wine lovers should diarise Friday 25 August from 17h00-21h00 and Saturday 26 August 13h00-18h00 when the 6th “We Love Wine at Capegate” festival kicks off with 25 wineries showing off their finest!

Wineries represented are from all over the country including the northern Cape, the Karoo, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Worcester, Franschhoek, the West Coast and the Overberg, giving visitors the chance to compare old favourites and fall in love with certain regions all over again.

The Cape Wine Academy are presenting their wine theatre with FREE tastings included in the ticket price.  “These are always very popular and visitors enjoy learning from the experts whilst having fun,” says Capegate Marketing Manager Amanda McCarthy.

Each presentation is 30 minutes long and consists of winery-linked tastings like Perdeberg’s “Barrels & Hops” tasting, Orange River Cellar’s “Create your own wine Cocktails” and “Nibbles and Wine” by Overhex Wines & Montagu Dried Fruit and Nuts.  The rest of the programme is made up of themed tastings like “Budget Beaters – Under R100 wines”, “Sweet Treats” and “The Diversity of Pinotage”.

Fest goers are welcome to leave the area for a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants in the Mall,  but charity partner The Pebbles Project, Mugg and Bean, Panarotti’s and Torrador are selling food inside the venue as well.   The Pebbles Project is running a fundraising raffle with lots of wine to be won,  and if sulphites is a problem,  the Kleerwine stand is the spot to visit to sort out your allergies.
