48 wineries showcasing their wines, festivity and energised cheer can be anticipated at the Robertson Wine Valley’s biggest annual wine festival – Wacky Wine Weekend from June 7 -10.
The Wacky Wine Weekend will include four festive days, with each day rendering a different wine theme, to cater for all palates. The event will feature meet-the-winemaker tastings, brandy tours and tastings, fun wine competitions, river cruises, tractor trips, cheese- and olive tastings, a simulated rodeo bull, a mountain bike challenge, the Robertson Farmers Market and local performing artists.
There is also a wide range of children’s activities including fishing, farmyard tours, jumping castles, pony rides, a treasure hunt and face-painting.
The Buddy Bus facility enables groups of seven or more visitors to hire a chauffeur-driven mini-bus. Drivers who register for the Designated Driver Programme will receive complimentary items (coffee, soft drinks, coupons and special deals).
Wacky Wine Weekend Bus-In Packages are also available. A2B Charters will be offering one day packages, with transport departing from the Waterfront, Tygervalley, Stellenbosch (Butterfly World) and Paarl, to Robertson, and ‘Buddy Bus’ transport between the participating wineries. For visitors from further afield, Beyond Reach has once again put together great Fly-In Packages that include flights, car rental and accommodation
