THE Stellenbosch Cabernet Collective (SCC) will be celebrating the King of Grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, with a harvest celebration on the tranquil lawns of Rust en Vrede on March 21, 2020. The event will give the public the opportunity to savour the exceptional Cabernets from the region.
Shaded by 300-year-old oak trees, guests are invited to savour the bounties of harvest as they tuck into a harvest-themed lunch prepared by executive chef Fabio Daniel, complemented by the best Cabernets the Stellenbosch region has to offer. Apart from its exceptionally beautiful and tranquil setting, what sets this harvest celebration apart is that only Cabernets bearing the distinctive W/O Stellenbosch seal will be served.
The harvest-style lunch will be complemented by an exclusive selection of Cabernet Sauvignon magnum bottles, some which will be specially bottled for the occasion, from the 29 SCC members and winemakers. “We wanted an opportunity to show like-minded Cabernet lovers what Stellenbosch has to offer in a way that really allows them the opportunity to show their best whilst relaxing in an informal setting with delicious food and fantastic company,” says Christo le Riche, SCC chairman.
The SCC Harvest Celebration begins at 12.30pm on Saturday March 21. Tickets cost R950 per person and include live music and a three-course family-style lunch served with an extensive selection of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. Tickets are limited and available via Quicket.
