Gauteng is about to be hit by an outdoor wine festival like you’ve never experienced before. Don’t believe us? Ask the 20000 visitors who travelled from far and wide this year to enjoy the country’s biggest regional wine festival – the Robertson Wine Valley’s Wacky Wine Weekend – and they’ve decided to share their Winelands hospitality with you!
Free wine tasting will naturally take place for the duration of the festival. Take a stroll through all the stalls, get to know the wines and the personalities behind each brand. But of course the Robertson Wine Valley is not all just about wine – neither is Kloofzicht Lodge. This weekend is all about relaxing. For the gentlemen out there – bring your own rod or hire one and fish in one of the numerous dams. For the ladies – come enjoy a magnificent outdoor massage by Chicama Spa for only R200. Kids? Please don’t leave them at home just because this is a wine festival! Beeld has ensured that the little ones will enjoy this weekend just as much as mom and dad. Kids under 18 enter for free, but the activities will be charged for on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.
Don’t forget the live music that will entertain you throughout the weekend as well. So bring your picnic blanket and unwind in the great company of Robertson Wine Valley and Kloofzicht Lodge. This festival will let you meet the winemakers, owners and personalities of the Robertson Wine Valley as they present the best the Valley has to offer.

About the Robertson Wine Valley
The Robertson Wine Valley is in the business of bowling people over with its wine tourism innovation, hospitality and, of course, great wines. That is why it was voted SA’s second favourite wine route in 2008*. For the same reason it received, in 2009, the Great Wine Capitals of the World’s award for Most Innovative Wine Tourism Experience. The judges couldn’t help but be impressed by the Robertson Wine Valley’s four annual festivals.
