Barrels and  Beards Harvest Celebration is one of my favourite events of the year. After harvest all us Bot River winemakers just want to get together and celebrate and we enjoy it even more when others are keen to join in too!

TO DO LIST:

WHAT’S THE PLAN,where must I go, what must I do??

Friday night warm-up at Honingklip

Saturday morning Tasting with Roland Peens

The unique ‘Best of Bot River Tasting’ at Goedvertrouw Wine Estate – owned and run by Elreda Pillman – on the Saturday morning is aimed at the more serious winos and cellar buffs. During the first part of the tasting, guests will have a chance to taste the best of the 2015 vintage hailing from Bot River. After that, Roland Peens will present a blind tasting of the finest wines from Bot River against international counterparts. Tickets : R350 tasting & lunch

Saturday evening – The Baard Paartie

At the main event at Barton Vineyards on Saturday evening, guests will be able to taste the young wines from the 2016 vintage, straight from the barrel, whilst comparing them to older vintages of the same wine. This will be followed by a delicious, proudly Botriviera dinner and of course, the long-awaited Beard competition. Wines will be on sale on the evening.

Genevieve MCC favourites brighten your winter blues.

Winter with Genevieve MCC

Here are some of Genevieve MCC favourite places to visit on cold cloudy day to brighten up the winter blues!

Needing a bit a TLC because the winter blues have set in, snuggle up at the Nellie for the High Tea with some Genevieve MCC, nothing beats a sugar rush on a cold winters day.

Get the buzz going with a champion flat white at the best coffee shop in the world at  Truth Coffee .

If you are in a sprint to get back to the comfort of your home after a hard day’s work, pop in for an early evening wine tasting at Wine Concepts or Vino Pronto.

For some inspiration, visit Wild Peacock (Stellenbosch) for a browse in their cozy wine shop and search out some of their delicious deli goods for a picnic next to the fire at home with some Genevieve of course!

If you need to stock up on some local products from the Overberg roll into Peregrine Farm Stall. Their restaurant winter specials include a bowl of hearty soup, a perfect break away from the chill outside.

And the ultimate getaway place in the valley is KolKol, relax in a log cabin with a roaring fire or plunge into the hot tub while sipping some Genevieve MCC.

Keep warm happy people!

Cheers
