    @ Breytenbach Sentrum
    Come and join Breytenbach Sentrum for Wine Wednesdays at the Breytenbach Sentrum! – a unique opportunity to taste the wines and meet the people from a collection of our Wellington Wine Route producers.

    Every last Wednesday of the month (usually the last, with an exception here and there) you (and your friends and family) can join us for a wine-down mid-week social event that will add excitement to your week!

    This event is held at the Breytenbach Sentrum (it’s a brand name – therefore we keep it Afrikaans) every last Wednesday from 4pm to 8pm.

    Everyone is welcome! The entrance fee is only R50 per person and this entry ticket buys you a tasting form – your pass to taste away! (up to 20 wines)

    We will have various producers from our Wellington wine route exhibiting at such an evening, thus guests can mingle and chat to the wonderful people from these estates, find out all about what they have to offer, and of course sample their wines!

    Wines can be ordered for home delivery (or collection) from the various estates on the night, and each month one special estate will be featured in the bar – for folks to buy and enjoy their wine either on the night or to take home.

    The Breytenbach Sentrum will be making a variety of delicious pizzas – so folks don’t even have to worry about supper!

    Live music will also supply some added entertainment.

    @ NH The Lord Charles Hotel
    Banish the harsh chill of winter with the taste of wonderful bounty from Helderberg farms and vineyards at the annual showcase of excellent local wine and food – Taste the Helderberg – on Friday, 7 June at the NH The Lord Charles Hotel just minutes from Cape Town, in Somerset West.

    For the occasion, organisers have chosen a theme colour that denotes Helderberg quality: the colour purple; the mystical colour of royalty.

    This will be the first time the event is held on a Friday and gives wine-lovers the opportunity for an idyllic weekend break-away to the countryside. Be among the first to sample latest wine releases and some of the region’s best on the Friday and then venture out to the farms on Saturday and Sunday to experience their provenance first-hand.

    The Helderberg Mountain towers above the town of Somerset West as part of the Hottentots Holland range. On its shoulders, exposed to the cool breezes of False Bay, vineyards and other farm plantings have thrived for centuries. Its wine farms alone are a reflection of this timeline: from the historic to ultra-modern – all great.

    Taste the Helderberg is a Winelands highlight for the great line-up of wines, many of which have achieved iconic status, as well as the chance to meet many of the winemakers, viticulturists and owners in person.

    This year, visitors can look forward to an exciting addition to Taste the Helderberg: food theatre in the form of a mesmerising chocolate buffet installation.

    The chocolate buffet brings a new dimension to the traditional culinary offering of pop-up food stands, with the course prepared live, during the run of the evening. Guaranteed to be another super crowd-pleaser, this unconventional food theatre production will be the exclamation mark on what promises to be a culinary experience of royal proportions.

    In that spirit then, the funkiest-dressed couples will be identified and rewarded for their innovative use of a touch of purple.
