Robertson Wine Valley festival at Kloofzicht Lodge

2011-06-28

28 June 2011  by Robertson Wine Valley 

After the success of last year's inaugural Festival, the 2011 Robertson Wine Valley Festival at Kloofzicht Lodge, over the weekend of 17 - 18 September, is definitely an event not to be missed!  

A convenient and comfortable 40 minute drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, take the time to escape from the urban hub-bub and head out to the country for a fun-filled outing amidst the untrammelled beauty of nature at Kloofzicht Lodge and meet the Robertson Wine Valley’s winemakers. Fine wine will be the order of the day, as just short of thirty acclaimed and boutique wineries afford Gautengers the opportunity to enjoy Robertson Wine Valley wines on their doorstep.

The line-up of Robertson Wine Valley wineries showcasing their fine wines will include key exhibitors like: Excelsior, Major’s Hill, Rietvallei, Robertson Winery, Rooiberg Winery, Van Loveren, Weltevrede and Zandvliet to name but a few. And with wines being sold on site, this event provides the perfect opportunity to stock up on your favourite Robertson wines, renowned for their great value, from easy-drinking to top-of-the-range.

In addition to excellent wines and gastronomic treats for the whole family, a wide variety of activities will make for an ideal family outing, with fly-fishing in the Lodge’s six dams, face-painting, jumping castles and much more.
So bring your friends and family along for an extravaganza of fine wine, delectable cuisine and complete relaxation amidst the rural ambience of spectacular scenery and sample a soupçon of country hospitality brought to you by the Robertson Wine Valley - in conjunction with Kloofzicht Lodge and Tourism Maps.

Kloofzicht Lodge
Nestled at the foothills of the Zwartkops Mountains in the Cradle of Humankind, Kloofzicht Lodge is the essence of tranquillity and the ultimate console for the soul, affording country hospitality at its most refined. The small but scenic reserve on which the Lodge is situated makes for an ideal destination for bird-watching and is home to a plethora of game. With sweeping views over the Zwartkops mountain range and six fly-fishing dams, Kloofzicht Lodge epitomises five-star luxury in a relaxed country environment. Kloofzicht Lodge forms part of the Guvon Hotels & Spas portfolio.

The Robertson Wine Valley and its Festivals
Tucked between the Langeberg and Riviersonderend mountain ranges, this picturesque wine route is a visual feast: with its landscape of roads fringed by a kaleidoscopic array of flowers, trees and vineyards. Through the Valley, winds the source of life – the Breede River – sustaining it all. The Robertson Wine Valley is comprised of the four towns: Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson. One of the most highly desirable wine tourism experiences, with a wide variety of award-winning wines and a myriad out-door activities on offer, as well as four well-attended annual Festivals hosted in the Valley, the Robertson Wine Valley is imminently attractive to the modern traveller.
