Franschhoek Wine Valley

Shiraz & Charcuterie Festival 2019 at Anthonij Rupert Wyne

It’s time for another world-class festival and highlight on the Cape Winelands social calendar. The annual Shiraz & Charcuterie Festival, which takes place once again at the picturesque Anthonij Rupert Wyne in Franschhoek on Saturday, 25 May (11am to 4pm) makes for the perfect late Autumn outing, combining some of the country’s finest Shiraz wines paired with charcuterie from artisanal producers.

Visitors will have the opportunity to taste Anthonij Rupert Wyne’s range of Shiraz wines, which include the limited release Anthonij Rupert Syrah, the site-specific Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Shiraz and Protea Shiraz. Joining Anthonij Rupert Wyne are 18 of the country’s top Shiraz producing estates, which include Thelema Mountain Vineyards, Leeu & Mullineux Family Wines, Waterford Estate, Stark-Condé Wines and Hartenberg Wine Estate. These highly acclaimed producers will all be showcasing their fine Shiraz wines for your enjoyment.

As you sip and savour your way through the wines – with their alluring notes of spice and dark fruits – pair them with the selection of delectable local and international charcuterie on offer – featuring everything from salamis and cured hams to flavoured chorizos. Nibble on the samples, choose your favourites and purchase them to enjoy at the festival or to take home. A lavish Anthonij Rupert Wyne Harvest Table, adorned with fresh seasonal salads, homemade Truffle arancini, estate olives, jalapenos, creamy tomato soup and pulled Moroccan lamb shoulder – are a match made in culinary heaven to complement the superb wine line-up. The Macaroon Bar, featuring an assortment of decadent flavours, guarantees a perfectly sweet finish.
