The Breedekloof Valley is one most scenic spots near Cape Town, less than an hour drive away it is definitely well worth the visit. One specific event in the valley to diarise is the annual Bredekloof Festival happening on Friday and Saturday, 12 and 13 October. The Festival is being hosted at Du Toitskloof Winery, situated near the foothills of the Du Toitskloof Mountains.
Don your sporting summer garb and join the cellar for wine tastings and light meals at its Be Fair Deli on the Friday. Saturday can be spent tasting local wines from the valley, enjoy live music, tuck into roosterkoek, sosaties and hotdogs, or try your hand at golf chipping and French bowls, all while the kids are entertained in the children’s play area.
Du Toitskloof cellar’s new Cape Beach Club range of wines, specifically designed with summer in mind, will also be available for tasting. The Blanc had only recently been named a 2013 Best Value Award winner. Tickets R60 per person for a weekend festival pass with free entry and wine tastings at all cellars in the Breedekloof area.
