After the successful event in 2016, Tulbagh’s Vintage and Vine Faire is back! The second faire will take place on 27 May at Saronsberg Vineyard.

A wonderful weekend to be in Tulbagh, sampling the valley’s abundance of produce, from award winning wines, to olives, cheese and so much more.

To start the weekend, why not come to Essere Lodge on Friday evening 26 May 2017, and join the multi award winning winemakers of Saronsberg, where they, and Essere’s Chef, Karin Schmidt, will be pairing wines with a mouth-watering menu? This is a ticket only event, and places are limited. Click here to reserve your spot at the wine pairing evening – tickets are R475 per person.

The evening will be an informal one, with a wide variety of flavours to pair with a broad selection of Saronsberg wines. The winemakers will provide insights and some background to each wine, in what promises to be a fun and interactive evening.

With something to tickle every taste bud and please every palate, this is an evening not to be missed!

Then on Saturday, enjoy a leisurely breakfast before taking the short drive to Saronsberg Cellars, for a day of fun for the whole family. With vintage cars, prizes for the best vintage costume, music and so much more – why not pre-order a picnic basket to enjoy at your leisure?  Check out our weekend special on the right
