A full week of outstanding food paired with some of the country’s best Shiraz wines awaits in this year’s exciting Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison. The programme for this annual winter festival has been unveiled and reflects another top-class showcase for the quality of South African Shiraz and its versatility as a food wine.

A jamboree of foodie delight, Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison centres mostly around the week of June 10 although several events will take place on one day only. Others have opted to extend the party for the entire month.

Winter being not only big for red wine, but game-inspired dishes too, festival participants can expect everything from feasts of shiraz and game; winemaker-led tastings of rare vintages; quick and simple pairings for fast visits; culinary innovations in savoury and sweet; and, much more.

Picture fire-side lunches and thick-knitted jumpers or lingering dinners in the company of friends. Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison is the perfect occasion to get out and about in the magnificent Cape winelands.

Important to note is that reservation is required for most of the occasions and must be made with the individual providers.

The great news is that participating wineries are located across the Cape, making it the perfect down-time activity whether you have an afternoon at your disposal or an entire weekend. Shiraz is among South Africa’s most widely planted varieties with the country being one of the biggest global growers too.

The world-class quality of our Shiraz is promoted by Shiraz SA through events such as Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison.

Wineries taking part this year include Aan’t Vette Wine Estate (Riversdale); Allesverloren (Riebeek Kasteel); Darling Cellars (Darling); Du Toitskloof (Rawsonville); Lord’s Wine Farm (McGregor); Strandveld Vineyards (Southern Cape).

In Stellenbosch, there’s Asara; Avontuur Estate; Bartinney; Delheim; Neethlingshof; Oldenburg Vineyards and Zevenwacht. In Hermanus and surrounds, Benguela Cove; Creation and Villion Family Wines. Paarl wineries doing their bit will be Avondale; Fairview; Landskroon; Nederburg and Vondeling Wines. Visitors from Durbanville can visit De Grendel Wines; Klein Roosboom Boutique Winery and Meerendal while Wellington wineries taking part are Diemersfontein and Wellington Wines; and, in Franschhoek, La Motte and Leopard’s Leap.

The full programme is available online at www.ShirazSA.co.za. Share your memorable moments of Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison 2019 by tagging Shiraz SA on Twitter @Shiraz_SA and Facebook (ShirazSouthAfrica).
