Cel­e­brate Christ­mas in Tul­bagh

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

CHRIST­MAS comes early this year as Tul­bagh dons its win­ter cape this month and wel­comes the rest of the coun­try to join them for a week­end ex­trav­a­ganza of won­der­ful win­ter warm­ers.

Mar­vel at the ar­ray of Christ­mas trim­mings and glit­ter­ing lights as Fa­ther Christ­mas drives down his­toric Church Street and hands out treats to the chil­dren, and browse through the arts and crafts, pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tions, art gal­leries and quaint shops.

En­joy cheese, Bel­gian choco­late and olive tast­ings. Jump­ing cas­tles, face paint­ing, pony rides and trac­tor trips are some of the ac­tiv­i­ties that will keep the lit­tle ones en­ter­tained.

Ex­pe­ri­ence a scenic ride on horse­back and the beauty and tran­quil­lity of na­ture, go on a Zip­slide ad­ven­ture fur­ther down the val­ley or take a scenic trac­tor trip up the his­toric Oudek­loof Pass with in­ter­est­ing stops along the way.

A trip to the Tul­bagh val­ley would be in­com­plete with­out a visit to its wine es­tates.

Join the wine­mak­ers and their staff for wine tast­ings, cel­lar tours and a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties which will be on of­fer.

Along the way you may even dis­cover the age-old art of sabrage.

En­tic­ing aro­mas will send you in search of our gas­tro­nomic won­ders.

Join us for a cup of eggnog or a glass of glüh­wein to warm the cock­les, en­joy roar­ing log fires, glit­ter­ing Christ­mas trees, win­ter warmer lunches and tra­di­tional Christ­mas fare and din­ners at our world-class restau­rants and cof­fee shops.

If you need to catch up on that all-im­por­tant sports score, don’t fear – sports bars are near, and don’t for­get to stock up on craft beer.

Jive to the sounds of live mu­sic, en­joy much mer­ri­ment and the good com­pany.

Come rain, shine or (hope­fully) snow, the se­cluded val­ley of Tul­bagh prom­ises you a fes­tive cele- bra­tion of Christ­mas in win­ter. – Good Week­end re­porter
