Our annual Elgin Valley Festival will take place on Sunday, 10 April 2016. Forming part of the annual Tastes of 2016 calendar, which is an eight month celebration of wine-paired dinners, we have a special festival planned for eager Pinot Noir aficionados.

The festival is a favourite on the Tastes calendar and sees some of the best South African Pinot Noir producers take to the lawns to celebrate the virtues of this sought after grape.

Originating in the Burgundy region of France, Pinot Noir wine is considered by some to be the best red wine there is. Typically showing red fruit in the form of cranberry, cherry and raspberry, other frequent aromas include vanilla, tobacco and caramel.

“This year, as in the past, we will have a fantastic selection of South African Pinot Noir producers at the festival,” says Matt Deitchman, Food and Beverage Manager. “With wines from estates such as Waterford, Meerlust and Creation, guests are guaranteed the very best. Plus, there have been hints that there will be a few surprises, so guests have much to look forward to.”

Guests are invited to sample this multi-faceted wine, accompanied by live music, canapés, blankets and umbrellas scattered on the grass.

The Elgin Valley Festival will take place from 14h00 – 17h00.

The cost to attend is R215 per person and guests are encouraged to book early.

To make a full weekend out of it, guests are also invited to join us for the Elgin Valley celebration dinner on Saturday 9 April. This will be an intimate dinner held in the Binnehof for R545 per person and will feature estates from the Elgin area. Book early as places are limited.
