Harvest season is a special time in this award-winning wine region and participating farms will host fun harvest activities for young and old to enjoy.
Paarl Harvest Celebration is held on the first weekend of March each year.
Perdeberg Cellar is one of the main attractions with live music, gourmet food trucks and award-winning wines.
Eighteen wineries offer nearly 50 Pinotage’s for tasting and for sale, some of which are paired with specific biltong flavours, chosen to highlight the best qualities of both. The wines range from traditional red Pinotage right up to Rosé’s, sparkling wine, MCC, blends and even a white Pinotage!
Food trucks, an Oyster & MCC bar, Perdeberg’s own craft beer range, a kiddies play area and music by the popular Guy Feldman and his band, offer the perfect day out for the whole family in the Winelands.
Perdeberg Cellar is the official host of this exciting festival for 2018 – 2020. This event is held mid April each year.
