On Friday, 30 September 2016 to Saturday, 1 October 2016, the quaint town of Dullstroom will play host to the inaugural Route 540 Wine Festival.
The weekend kicks off with a safari wine dinner at 18:00 on Friday evening whereby guests will visit five separate venues for five delectable courses perfectly paired with a selection of fine wines. The tantalising journey begins at Charlie C’s with canapes and Method Cap Classique. Next up is a mouth-watering soup and Sherry pairing at Hamlets, followed by the main course and accompanying wines at Rose Cottage. An impressive desert ensemble will then be enjoyed at The Coachman, and the evening will be wrapped up with a cheese table at the Art of Food.
A ticket for this exciting event costs just R600 per person and includes all five courses and wine pairing. With a limit of 250 participants for the safari dinner, make sure to secure your spot as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
On Saturday, from 10h00 – 17h00, eight participating Dullstroom restaurants will host over 16 wine farms from around South Africa for a day of leisurely wine tasting. Participants will receive a wristband and a stylish tasting glass for just R150 per person, a fee which will grant them access to sample a vast range of different wines throughout the day.
