1st to 3rd september spring weekend, bot river, western cape
Just like the rainbow-theme it has adopted this year, the people of the Overberg town of Bot River have lined up a dazzling spectrum of activities and fun – all showcasing the best of the region – for their annual Spring Weekend. In celebration of the awakening of nature in all its forms, all the participating wine farms will throw open their doors for visitors to taste their cellar gems and unique local produce through convivial farm-hopping and pantry shopping. The tone for the jam-packed weekend programme will be set at the Best of Bot Wines exclusive dinner on 1st September. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, Bot River’s participating wineries – including Arcangeli Wines, Villion Wines, Genevieve MCC, Gabriëlskloof Wine Estate and Rivendell Estate & Vineyards – will turn on the charm. Tickets are available from www.quicket.co.za.
