Simonsig Vintage Day celebrations cater not only to wine enthusiasts, but offer a relaxed and enjoyable day out in the vineyards for the whole family.

There will be live music on the day, entertainment and a safe play area for kids, as well as food on offer from the estate’s Cuvèe restaurant. 

“Simonsig is celebrating 50 years of bottling Simonsig Chenin blanc. Steen was where it all began for Simonsig in 1968, when the first Simonsig label was applied to a bottle of our own wine. Chenin blanc is still South Africa’s signature white wine and this masterclass will explore different styles of Chenin, along with some wines from great Loire winegrowers.” Johan Malan, cellarmaster

Tickets for the general tasting and family day cost R165 per person, and include a glass and all wine tastings. Wine club members get a 20% discount, and children under 18, accompanied by an adult, may enter for free. Tickets are available through, the Simonsig Tasting Room, or at the estate on the day. 

The Chenin masterclass with cellarmaster Johan Malan will be held from 09:00 to 11:00 and attendance costs R250 per person – book in advance as space is limited.

This exclusive and intimate masterclass will allow you to taste older vintages from the Simonsig cellars, as well as Chenin blanc from the great Loire valley – truly a rare opportunity for wine connoisseurs. 

All tickets through, the Simonsig Tasting Room or at the estate on Vintage Day. For further information, contact Simonsig at 021 888 4912.
