Waterkloof, the beautifully appointed wine estate ‘in the sky’ on the outskirts of Somerset West, will tantalise all the senses and more, when it kicks off the 2013 Helderberg Wine Festival in elevated style with a Six Senses Evening of sublime tastes unique to the area on Thursday, 14 November.
“Although scientists believe we only have five senses, we beg to differ as we’ll be celebrating the sixth one, which we call ‘enjoyment’ during the launch event of this annual wine festival,” shares Waterkloof winemaker Nadia Barnard.
Waterkloof will be transformed into a stylish Helderberg wine and dine hub of indulgences from this prime winemaking triangle stretching from Somerset West to Stellenbosch and Sir Lowry’s Pass Village. Its slick restaurant cum tasting lounge is gorgeously appointed in a 10 meter high glass house on the slope of the Schapenberg, overlooking the farm and False Bay that has such an influence over its amphitheatre of bio-dynamic vineyards and which will add a fitting backdrop to this elevated wine and dine experience.
Joining Waterkloof will be more than 20 local wine producers and 10 restaurants who will be sharing their pride and pleasures for tasting and sale with like-minded food and wine enthusiasts during this exclusive affair. They include: Avontuur Estate & Restaurant; Somerbosch Wines & Bistro; Blaauwklippen Vineyards & Barouche Restaurant, and Dornier Wines & Bodega Restaurant.
Guests will be able to sip on wine whilst chatting to the winemakers, and enjoy the classy ambiance with tasting portions of signature dishes from the participating restaurants – all included in the ticket price of just R200 per person.
If the success of last year’s inaugural Six Senses Evening is anything to go by, tickets will be flying fast so make sure you get hold of yours today at www.plankton.mobi.
Tickets are limited and cost R200 per head – this includes free wine tastings throughout the evening; a R50 food voucher (more food vouchers will be for sale on the evening); a branded festival glass, and festival wristbands valid for the duration of the Helderberg Wine Festival which culminates on Sunday, 17 November.
The doors will be open from 17h00 until 21h00 and walk-ins are welcome, although pre-booking are advised as tickets are limited to guarantee enjoyment.
