Winter wines and homemade food to keep the chill at bay

Wear away those winter blues with the help of the 8th annual High Street Winter Wine Festival at the High Street Shopping Village in Durbanville from Thursday, 21 June to Saturday, 23 June 2012. At the festival, visitors get to taste and buy wines, homemade food, and fresh produce, and can also look forward to live music as well as free access to the Cape Wine Academy’s wine theatre.
With a selection of over 20 wineries and more than 25 food stalls, festival-goers are certainly spoiled for choice this year. Indulge in the reds, ports, brandies and dessert wines on offer.
