The upcoming Stellenbosch Wine Festival, week-long extravaganza of world-class wines, fine food, and fun, takes place in the much-loved university town from July 22 to 31, 2011.

The annual celebration will see leading wine producers in Cape Legends’ portfolio showcase their wines in creative and innovative ways. These producers include Alto, Uitkyk, Le Bonheur and Neethlingshof. Ranging from R35 to R250 per offer, the activities on offer will suit any pocket.

Neethlinghshof will be hosting ‘First Love’ in the estate’s magnificent red wine maturation cellar, which promises to be an exclusive evening where the marriage of food with wine is celebrated. Katinka van Niekerk, known as the great dame of food and wine pairing, will treat guests to a tutored session in which a sumptuous three- course meal will be paired with some of Neethlingshof’s finest wines. Co-author of The Food and Wine Pairing Guide and former lecturer at the Cape Wine Academy, this passionate foodie will also be sharing stories from her interesting life.

For an evening of laughter and hysterical confusion make your way in teams of three to Uitkyk Estate to participate in a game of ’30 Seconds’, followed by a heart- warming meal of winter soups and freshly baked bread. At the event, aptly named ’30 Seconds to Dine’, you’ll stand a chance to win exciting prizes such as picnic sets, Uitkyk wine gift packs and brandy and chocolate hampers.

Classic musical favourites will be screened in Le Bonheur’s manor house, preceded by mouth- watering tapas, accompanied by Le Bonheur’s award-winning wines, to suit the theme of the film being shown.

Popular Alto Estate offers visitors a delicious combination of its reds, teamed up with melt-in- the-mouth home-made pâtés. Each of the three wines in the range will be combined with a pâté and be served with artisanal 100% rye bread made in the area. Guests are encouraged to end off this experience with Alto Port served with cranberry and dark chocolate biscotti.

The Stellenbosch Wine Festival has become a Cape Winelands institution during the winter months and is a popular attraction for both local and international wine enthusiasts. The exciting activities offered by Neethlingshof, Uitkyk, Alto and Le Bonheur are not to be missed!
