Make your way to the annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival. These quaint little towns come alive as they showcase the best they have to offer in food, wine and olives.
The Olive Festival focuses on this popular fruit during this time, showcasing the diversity of olives. Visitors to the Olive Emporium can stock up on a wide selection of olives, olive oils, preserves, tapenades and a selection of olive-based beauty products.
Visitors are also welcome to visit the wineries where they will have the opportunity to sit in on tutored tastings or simply sample the wines at their leisure. Live entertainment at these establishments will ensure a truly relaxing experience.
Amongst the many new activities at this year's festival will be an Olive Emporium, a country fair, a fresh goods market as well as an Olive Martini bar.
An R80 passport, valid for the entire festival weekend allows you entry to the various wine farms, the town based marquees, a complimentary tasting glass and a free tasting of olives or wine. The value for money passports can be purchased online at www.webtickets.co.za or on the day at participating establishments as well as the two centralised marquees.
Make a weekend of it and book into one of the Valley's accommodation establishments, suited to every taste and pocket.
