The ninth annual Oyster, Wine and Food Festival promises to bring over 40 000 oysters, 30 gourmet food exhibitors and over 38 wine estates to tantalise your palette. All wines, will be found in the open-air Promotions Court at the centre. Wine glasses can be purchased for R25 at one of three entrances, affording visitors the opportunity for diverse and interesting tastings at the wine circles. Enjoy the heady mix of cheese platters, oysters and Methode Cap Classique over the weekend.
Fresh oysters, along with cooked meals featuring the dainty delicacy, will be abundantly available for famished festival-goers. This year medium oysters will be sold for R12 each and the popular jumbo oysters for R20 at a dedicated station. Gourmands are invited to experiment with their pairings and match the delicious oceanic flavour of the oysters with Guinness, beers and wines, or the classic favourite, a crisp bubbly. .
Last year saw 1000 cupcakes sold, 4000 pints of beer drunk at the Beer Tent, 280 kgs of lemon used and an overall growth of 61% of the Festival – some impressive figures. Entry into the Festival is free, however there will be a charge for the oysters, gourmet foods and wine.
