Your Winter Weekend away in the Robertson Wine Valley.....

Fancy a fun-filled weekend in the Cape Winelands? Come and enjoy award-winning wines and warm hospitality in the Robertson Wine Valley. The 3rd annual WACKY WINE WEEKEND is taking place from 2 to 4 June 2006.

The festival takes place at more than thirty wineries across this beautiful valley and offers something for everyone: food fundis, art & music lovers, outdoor & sporty types, the young, the old, family and friends.

New on the cards this year is a half-marathon along the lovely canna-paved road between Bonnievale and Robertson, a chauffeur service to encourage responsible tasting and fly-in packages from Johannesburg and Durban.

This is the ideal time to get up close and personal with the local winemaking community! There are plenty ?meet-the-winemaker? tastings and some of the winemakers will be hosting private ?barrel-tastings?. Activities include boat cruises; sunset game drives; river rafting; live music (classic, Italian, blues, Afrikaans pop, rock etc); cheese & olive tastings; golf, terroir tractor trips; wine tasting in a candle-lit cellar; vineyard quad biking; and much, much more.

There is also plenty to eat, with everything from hotdogs to gourmet delicacies! These include riverside picnics; an Italian ?Republican day?; a delightful seafood evening; bon-fire potjiekos; traditional ?boerekos?; Argentinean steak; and fresh oysters with bubbly. The list just goes on and on!

For the kids there will be pony rides; ?stok-brood? barbeque; inflatables; face painting; traditional ?tom bola? games; ?kettie? target shooting and much more.

Be sure not to miss the Wacky Wine Weekend in the Robertson Wine Valley - make this your winter weekend away!

A passport will be purchased for R30 at your first port of call, e.g. any of the participating wineries. This includes a stylish tasting glass as well as a ?Friends of the Valley? booklet, listing special offers valid for 6 months AFTER the Wacky Wine Weekend. All other activities over the Wacky Wine Weekend are pay-as-you-go with more than a third of the activities free of charge.
