Pink is the theme for the Delheim 2019 Harvest festival, hosted by the Stellenbosch winery as the harvest gets underway. The event will take place on Saturday, 26 January 2019 to celebrate the bounty of the vineyard.
At the beginning of every year, the Cape Winelands become a hive of activity as harvest gets underway and Delheim is traditionally one of the very first Stellenbosch wine estates to ring in the new vintage in high spirits. This year’s pink-theme celebrates the harvest of Delheim’s world-renowned Pinotage Rosé – a wine that has built a loyal following since its launch in 1976 as the first in South Africa.
Tickets for the 2019 Delheim Harvest Festival are limited to only 120 adults and 30 children and the event again promises a fun-filled day in the country. Weather permitting, the hub of activities will happen at Delheim’s tranquil picnic area along the shady banks of the Klip River that flows through the farm.
Grape picking and stomping action
The day will start fresh amidst the vineyards with grape picking and exhilarating stomping action and then will ease into a laidback, family-friendly harvest feast brimming with delights.
Think farm fresh salads, dolmades, baked breads, cheese and preserves, pickles, a variety of meats and fruit. Cheese straws, olives, grapes and bread on tables will provide nibbles throughout.
Dessert will be a highlight, with fynbos cupcakes and Pinotage ice-cream.
Wines will be on offer through Delheim’s complimentary wine bar, of course, and there will be juice for the kiddies.
There will also be vineyard tours and tractor rides, while live music entertainment will set just the right mood for a memorable day out with family and friends. Rewards await the best-dressed enthusiast; the fastest grape pickers in the eponymous vineyard competition; and, the most juice stomped.
