Dusk Harvesting at Nederburg

Pin It

Take part in the creation of some of Nederburg’s award-winning wines by joining the winery’s twilight harvest on Saturday, February 25.

In a break with tradition, the harvesting activities will take place at dusk with popular South African instrumental supergroup Sterling EQ afterwards providing entertainment during a picnic-dinner under the stars. On arrival, you’ll be treated to a refreshing sparkling wine cocktail and a special Nederburg gift. Freshly-baked mosbolletjies, bread rolls and korrelkonfyt made from Pinotage grapes will be available to snack on while awaiting the expert harvesting team who will teach you how to hand-pick perfectly ripened grapes. After harvesting, you’ll get to taste freshly-pressed grape must, which is juice that has already started fermenting, as well as some tank samples of wine so you can experience the journey from the vineyard to the bottle. A scrumptious harvest picnic dinner and some fine Nederburg wines will next be served on the sprawling lawns in front of the 19th century manor house while Sterling EQ performs.

Festvities start from 4:30pm and cost is R200 perperson. Booking is essential on 021 862 3104 Wearing comfortable clothing and shoes is advised.
