Top events to attend in Cape Town and the Western Cape’s wine routes

Wine festivals and events are back in full swing. Here’s a tasting of what’s coming up in the last quarter of the year


Doringbaai Abalone Festival | Namaqua West Coast Wine Route 

Namaqua West Coast Tourism, with Fryer’s Cove Vineyards and Doringbaai Ablalone, hosts this laid-back event. Tables are set along the Doringbaai jetty and guests can sample abalone, crayfish as well as other West Coast food and wine. 

Swartland Street Party | Swartland Wine & Olive Route

A village street is closed off on 5 November for this annual occasion where the inimitable winemakers of the Swartland present tastings of their latest and older vintages. Local food and live music (from a flatbed truck!) are part of the festivities.

Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival | Agulhas Wine Triangle

Explore Africa’s southernmost region and its wines by attending the Agulhas Wine Triangle Festival on Saturday, 19 November. The venue is yet to be confirmed and will be announced via the organiser’s social media channels.




Cap Classique & Champagne Festival | Franschhoek Wine Valley

Dust off your most striking outfit and get ready for the social calendar event of the year on 3 & 4 December. On show are Cap Classiques and Champagnes, with the Huguenot Monument as backdrop. The festival again takes place in a marquee and is attended by producers and representatives of international brands.
