IT’S time to put on your party hat and hang out with the cool crowd, when Gabriëlskloof Estate outside Bot River celebrates the festive season in grand fashion with its dazzling Favourite Things Market from Friday, December 13 until Sunday, December 15.
This stylish annual pop-up affair at the Overberg’s wine estate-on-the-hill offers just that: multiple unique, creative and contemporary exhibitors offering all things handmade, homemade, delicious, fresh and beautiful. A tastefully curated Christmastime treat, this market is the spot to be seen at, while stocking up on some rare, must-have finds.
More than 30 stalls are already booked for the swanky occasion and include an authentic array of high-end, true craft. Among fabulous favourites will be some chic newcomers. Think lavish leather goods and earthy wreaths; fresh plants and the perfect paella; artisanal bakes and pure honey; ceramics to silk wear.
As with previous years, Friday night is dedicated to reservations for tables at R100pp – an event that celebrates the amicable generosity ingrained in Overberg culture. Setting the perfect tone with authentic French flair will be a live trio with accordion, bass cello and violin. And, life’s little pleasures will be on offer too: fresh oysters and plenty of Gabriëlskloof Madame Lucy Méthode Cap Classique.
The Gabriëlskloof Favourite Things Market will be open
- Friday, December 13 from 5pm till 9pm
- Saturday, December 14 10am till 6pm; and,
- Sunday, December 15 10am till 3pm
