Elim Wine Festival 2017


The annual Elim Wine Festival 2017 takes place at Black Oystercatcher Wines on Saturday 04 November from 10m to 5pm
Once a year – for one day only – the cool-climate wines of the Elim Wine Ward and surrounds come together to deliver a blast of flavours distinct to this wine-growing region. This year the Elim Wine Festival takes place on Saturday 4 November, at Black Oystercatcher Wines.
And in 2017, there are more wine, craft beer, foodie and fun reasons to get to know this cool Overberg countryside – and all it has to offer!
The Elim Wine Festival this year showcases the region’s firm favourites: Strandveld Wines, Home of First Sighting, Black Oystercatcher Wines, #TheBerrio, #TheGiantPeriwinkle, Brunia Wines and Cederberg Wines’ #GhostCorner. 2017 also sees the return of #LandsEnd, the first wine of origin Elim to have been released, as well as Zoetendal Wine Farm.
Wineries from just outside Elim also at the festival this year are Sijnn Wines, Lomond Wine Estate, The Drift Farm, #Dabar and Jean Daneel Wines. Skipskop Wines, a boutique Napier winery, makes its first appearance.
To add to the festival’s flavour sensations, craft breweries Fraser’s Folly and #BeckersCraftBeer will offer their flagship beers, as well as beers brewed just for fest-goers. The day’s wine and beer can be perfectly paired with a range of locally-produced meals, platters, sweets and other tasty products.
Winemakers and brewmasters will also offer intimate tasting sessions at the festival. A range of fun activities, including a sheepdog herding display, archery on horseback, market stalls and vintage tractors, will entertain festival goers, to the backdrop of three South African bands: Gian Groen, Jacobus Silwer and #Borderline.
The festival takes place on Saturday 4 November at the Black Oystercatcher. Tickets cost R130 – which includes a wine glass and wine/beer tastings. Free entry for children under 18 years.
