Nederburg Wines is hosting its annual Harvest at Dusk Festival at their farm in Paarl, on Saturday, February 16 2019. Participate in the fun of picking and stomping grapes, learn about how the wine grape harvest is progressed from the experts, and kick back and relax while feasting on freshly-prepared fare matched with award-winning wines, while listening to the sweet sounds of popular South African musician, Mathew Gold.

Start with a glass of Nederburg’s refreshing Cuvée Brut on arrival, served with a surprise snack. You will then be shown a selection of different grape varieties and get the chance to taste the fresh grapes just before they become wine.

As the sun sets, get your hands dirty by picking some fully ripened grapes in the vineyards. Then join in on the pleasure of stomping grapes and fully immerse yourself in this traditional way of making wine.

When the hard work is done, relax with live music by Cape Town-born singer-songwriter, Mathew Gold, who is fast becoming a household name in the South African music scene.

Chef Lisa Cilliers of The Red Table restaurant, situated in Nederburg’s historic manor house, will be serving up a bountiful harvest feast of family-style table platters, laden with delicious mezze to wet your appetite; farm-fresh salads and vegetables to accompany delicious slow-roasted meat; as well as ‘korrelkonfyt’ and peach upside down cake served with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

A wide selection of Nederburg wines will be available for purchase, as will soft drinks, mineral waters, coffees and teas.

Guests are advised to wear hats, sunscreen as well as comfortable clothing and shoes.
