Barrels of fun at Grande Provence Harvest Festival

Celebrate the 2015 grape harvest with Grande Provence on Saturday, 28 February, with fun and laughter as the order of the day at their annual Harvest Festival. Start your morning at 9H00 with artisanal coffee and farm baked muffins followed by a day of grape picking, stomping, wine tasting and magnificent food. 

Let the adventure begin with a tractor ride into the lush vineyards to gather your grapes, followed by wine tasting and a cellar tour led by Grande Provence`s Cellarmaster. Next up, revel in your very own barrel of fun by participating in traditional harvest day grape stomping. Live music will entertain you while hosing down your feet.

To end the festivities, tuck into a lavish harvest feast expertly prepared by Grande Provence’s Executive Chef.

Tickets for this fun-filled event are R650 for adults and R350 for children under 12. Booking is essential, so be sure to contact Barbara at Tel: 021 876 8600 or Email:
