ABSA Calitzdorp Port and Wine Festival
The Klein Karoo is big on port...
The annual ABSA Calitzdorp Port and Wine Festival is set to take over the Klein Karoo from Friday, 14 to Monday, 17 June 2013.
Located just four hours from Cape Town along the scenic Route 62, Calitzdorp is the gateway to the Garden Route and is known as the port wine capital of South Africa.
The line-up promises to be bigger and better than ever before, with all kinds of events to keep you entertained all weekend long. Be the first to sample the unique Calitzdorp Blend (Portuguese cultivars) with barrel samples available at eight different cellars. Enjoy a cooking demonstration with the talented Emile Joubert and Lise Beyers using Tinta Barocca, Touriga Nacional and port wines from Calitzdorp. There will also be a Cheese and Wine Celebration lead by Cape Wine Academy Master Junel Vermeulen and a local cheese expert, showcasing regional and international cheese with port and port cultivar wines.
Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just a big drinker with a penchant for partying, this event is undoubtedly a social calendar highlight.
