Beat those winter blues with bowls of broth from the Durbanville Wine Valley
Bowls will be overflowing and bread will be broken at the fourth annual Soup, Sip and Bread Festival taking place in the Durbanville Wine Valley on Saturday, 2 and Sunday, 3 June 2012.
Eleven Durbanville Wine Valley wine farms have joined forces to host this event, and festival-goers can look forward to a weekend of swilling, as well as slurping. Get ready to pair the wine route’s warming reds with hearty home-made soups, chowders and gumbos and freshly baked artisanal breads while you listen to the live music on offer.
Altydgedacht, Bloemendal, D’Aria, De Grendel, Diemersdal, Durbanville Hills, Groot Phesantekraal, Hillcrest Estate, Klein Roosboom, Meerendal and Nitida will be providing a smorgasbord of fun-filled family activities to delight the senses.
What to expect at the 2012 Soup Sip and Bread Festival
Hop from estate to estate to sample the fine wines from each of these accomplished wine farms and to indulge in the accompanying steaming bowls of soup. Each farm’s offering is different, so you can create a culinary journey of your own; from fresh roosterkoek at D’Aria, buffets at Diemersdal and Durbanville Hills to gluhwein and French baguettes at Nitida; there’s bound to be something to suit even the most particular palette.
Each wine farm has a unique menu and entertainment line-up; have a look at the program on the Durbanville Wine Valley site (Durbanvillewine.co.za) to choose which estates strike your fancy. Be sure to book all events directly with the host farm. Don’t delay, places are limited and you don’t want to miss out on this tummy-warming event.
Prices vary; consult individual wine farms for entrance fees and menu costs.
