FAMOUS for its twice-daily parade of Indian Runner ducks which keep the vineyards free of slugs and snails and other creepy-crawlies, Vergenoegd Löw wine estate is presenting its second season of summer live music concerts, beginning on December 3.
The line-up includes some of the biggest names in South African music, whether they are the headline acts or the openers. The concerts will be all-day affairs, from 11am – with music from 12pm – until 6pm, giving the main artists around two hours on stage. You’ll be able to lounge around on the lawns with fab food from the market, and wines from the estate.
A dedicated children’s village will keep the little ones entertained, so parents are able relax and enjoy the entertainment. Whatever your age, the duck parade – about a 1000 of the funny little things – is a delight, so look out for them around 12.30pm and 3.30pm.
Tickets are at R150 a person, and children under 10 enter free. Vergenoegd wine, food and beverages will be sold at an additional cost. Book now to secure your tickets; I’ve already picked the March concert so it’s never too early. Vergenoegd Löw Wine Estate is on Badel Powell Drive, Stellenbosch.
