Cape Town - Carefully selected wines accompanied by mouthwatering food, is a good description of what this year’s Elgin Cool Wine & Country Festival is all about.

The Elgin Wine valley will opens its doors to visitors from far and wide for the annual Elgin Cool Wine and Country Food Festival which is to be held over the weekend of 29-30 April 2017 from 10h00 until 17h00 daily.

"Each of the participating wineries will offer a unique programme, allowing patrons to tailor-make their experience according to their own personal preferences, whilst enjoying a welcome alternative to the hustle and bustle of city life," say the organisers.

Here's what you need to know:

It will be a weekend filled with award winning wines, a delectable culinary experience, a plethora of outdoor activities, live entertainment and natural scenic wonders will ensure that visitors, young and old, enjoy a memorable time in this hospitable valley.

You can purchase your favorite dishes and wines, and enjoy them under the trees in the estate’s garden. Pop into the Tasting Room for a quick tasting and snack as you make your way through the valley during the weekend, or bring your picnic blankets for a lazy afternoon of delicious food and superb wines.  And while the adults take some time out the kids will be kept entertained with their own entertainment.
