The weekend kicks off with the Winemakers Selection on the 9 September at Kol Kol Mountain Lodge, Bot River, tranquil with sweeping views of fynbos. Winemakers will be showcasing their wines and revealing unique perspectives on vine-to-glass progression and the personality of Bot River terroir – all complemented by culinary delights.
Tickets cost R100. Please contact Kol Kol on firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the weekend participating Wine Estates and restaurants will announce their involvement by placing pink barrels at their entrances. Entertainment varies from horse riding, fly fishing, wine and olive oil tastings and blending, sumptuous meals, live music, pottery and art exhibitions.
Entry is Free. Saturday 10:00 – 18:00 / Sunday 10:00 -15:00
Partygoers can shunt their cabooses over to the Bot River Station on Saturday 10 September for the Botriviera Spectacle. The theme is ‘carnival’, an excuse for guests to puff up their feathers and pimp their style for an evening of other-worldly and downright surreal entertainment.
The party will be fuelled by DJ Charl who returns this year to rock the rails and steam up the venue. The loco-motion starts at 7 pm and the party will go on till late.
Tickets cost R100 and includes entry to the lucky draw and amazing giveaways. Tickets available at Shuntin’ Shed
Bot River is only 1 hour and 15 minutes from Cape Town so whether one is visiting for a day or spending the weekend on one of the participating estates, the Botriviera Spring Weekend provides an opportunity to discover and explore this fascinating area, meet the merry winemakers and enjoy their wines.
