NEDERBURG’S team of viticulture and winemaking experts is ready to face the 2020 wine grape harvest head-on. The most special time of the year in the wine industry, the annual harvest is a celebration of thanksgiving for nature’s incredible bounty.
As always, Nederburg will be inviting guests to come experience the harvest first-hand, providing the opportunity to sip, savour, snip and squash during the Paarl winery’s 2020 Harvest At Dusk Festival, scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 8, from 4pm until late. And what’s more, for the first time, KFM presenter Carl Wastie (pictured below) will be there as MC.
Learn from Nederburg’s winemakers how the harvest is progressing, and taste newly harvested grapes and fresh grape must before it becomes wine. Then get yourself dirty by participating in the fun of picking and stomping fully ripened grapes.
After freshening up, guests will be treated to a bountiful harvest feast on the lawn in front of Nederburg’s historic manor house, with upbeat music entertainment provided by popular South African music group, Kaleidoskoop (pictured below).
Johnny Hamman and Marius Uys of Slippery Spoon Kitchen will be serving up a harvest feast with creative flair, like never before. Much of it’s still a secret, but you can expect family-style table platters laden with delicious fresh food including bountiful mezze, meats, salads and vegetables, as well as delectable desserts.
A wide selection of Nederburg wines, soft drinks, mineral waters, coffees and teas will be available to buy.
Guests are advised to wear hats, sunscreen, comfortable clothing and shoes.
