This year, the Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival takes place on Saturday, October 30, at Lomond wine farm in Gansbaai.
Experience the finest wines, meet the winemakers and discover rare and undiscovered treasures, all while having a relaxing day on a beautiful wine farm in a unique wine region. The Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival is a festival for every wine lover, from novice to sommelier – an event not to be missed!
The Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival showcases eight of the region’s wine brands: Black Oystercatcher Wines, The Giant Periwinkle, Ghost Corner, Land’s End and Strandveld Vineyards from the Elim wine ward, Sijnn Wines from Malgas, Lomond Wines from Cape Agulhas and Bruce Jack Wines from Napier.
South Africa’s youngest wine region is characterised by extreme vineyards planted in the southern, most ancient soils in the world. The wines are influenced by their proximity to the wild, cold oceans and tempering, cooling winds.
The pioneering winegrowers of the Agulhas Wine Triangle share a spirit for exploration and adventure. They are known for championing elegant, site-driven wines, with concentrated fruit flavours. Already recognised by wine journalists for crafting some of the longest-lived dry white wines in the world with a distinctive salinity and incredible palate weight, it’s now the boisterously expressive red wines that are also walking away with top awards in local and international wine competitions.
Guests will enjoy tastings of the finest wines members have to offer in a safe, well-spaced, walk-around tasting area and get the opportunity to chat to the makers about their unique creations and latest vintages. The wines will pair perfectly with locally sourced cheese and charcuterie platters.
The AWT Wine Shop will offer visitors wine and local produce to take home to remember their day in the Agulhas Wine Triangle. The AWT will host a series of themed masterclasses, presented by André Morgenthal and the AWT member winemakers.
