Robertson Wine on the River
23 August 2012 by Robertson Wine Valley
For the seventh consecutive year, over the weekend of 19 to 21 October, the inimitable and ever-popular Robertson Wine on the River is returning to the banks of the Breede River. Once again the festival is taking place in a spacious marquee at the charming riverside farm, Goudmyn, situated on the R317 between Robertson and Bonnievale.
Enjoy laid-back country hospitality at its best as you taste more than 300 wines from over 40 wineries, while soaking up the rhythm of live jazz, ballads and blues. While wine-tasting is the order of the day, there will be delicious gastronomic delights from which to choose, whilst: browsing amongst the country food stalls, shopping your way through the Robertson Farmers’ Market, and much more. Tutored chardonnay tastings will be on offer in the Chardonnay Tent, and other popular attractions will include river cruises as well as arts and crafts from the Valley.
Offering a wide variety of children’s activities, Robertson Wine on the River promises to be a fabulously festive family affair. And, children under 18 enter free of charge, making it more convenient and cost-effective for the whole family to enjoy all that the Valley has to offer! After free admission, children’s activities will be charged for on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ system.
Convenient designated parking areas will be clearly sign-posted en route. For visitors utilising parking areas further a-field, a shuttle-service will provide transport to and from the festivities.
With wines being sold on site at cellar door prices, Robertson Wine on the River provides the perfect opportunity to stock up on your favourite Robertson wines, renowned for their great value, from easy-drinking to top-of-the-range.
This idyllic, open-air spring festival is not to be missed. So bring your friends and family along for an extravaganza of fine wine, delectable treats, great music and complete relaxation amidst a rural ambience of spectacular scenery and warm sunshine.
