Laid-back weekend vibes meet family fun on the farm, when Eikendal Estate sets the scene for its popular Weintaufe Harvest Celebration teeming with great wines, wholesome country-style fare and barrels of entertainment for young and old on Sunday, 3 March 2013.

Over the past three decades the Eikendal Weintaufe has evolved into a not-to-be-missed highlight on the social calendar, attracting a vibrant crowd of young and old, all celebrating the harvest high jinks at this prominent Stellenbosch cellar.

Eikendal is known for its fine Chardonnay and superb flagship reds and visitors will get to taste the cellar’s first wine of the 2013 harvest – the flagship Chardonnay– straight from the barrel, after the baptism of this new wine.

Delicious food and wine will be on sale, so bring your friends, family and picnic blanket and claim your spot at the water’s edge for the perfect ending to your weekend in the warm company of Eikendal.
