This October, the Robertson Wine Valley once again brings you an exciting spring experience! The Robertson Wine on the River will take place 19 - 21 October 2007 at 2 riverside venues. You are invited to gather a group of friends and join us on the banks of the Breede River to taste more than 300 wines from over 40 wineries. Soak up the rhythm of LIVE jazz, ballads and blues and enjoy laid-back country hospitality at its best.

The event will again be hosted in two huge marquees at Spes Bona and Goudmyn, adjoining riverside farms on the R317 between Robertson and Bonnievale. Visitors will be shuttled between the two venues, by ferry or on land. While wine tasting is the order of the day, there will be delicious gastronomic delights to choose from, including creating your own picnic to enjoy on the banks of the river, browsing amongst the country food stalls, lazy lunching at the riverside restaurant, shopping your way through the Robertson Farmers’ Market, and much more.

Tutored tastings of bubbly, chardonnay, cheese, chocolate, olives and olive oil will, no doubt, once again be very popular, as will the river cruises. And with plenty of children’s activities available, Robertson Wine on the River promises to be a truly festive family affair.

With wines being sold on site at cellar door prices, Robertson Wine on the River offers the perfect opportunity to stock up on your favourite Robertson wines. Due to popular demand, Robertson Wine on the River has been extended to include Sunday this year, so bring your friends and family and gather on the banks of the river for a weekend of fine wine, good food great music and complete relaxation whilst enjoying the spectacular scenery and warm country sunshine.
