The Robertson Wine Valley is one of the best spots in South Africa to find truly excellent wines, epic scenery and farm-to-fork eateries.
The wine industry in Robertson has grown from less than 25 cellars in 1995 to more than 50 registered wine cellars as of today and it’s the home of well known festivals, including the 12th annual Slow Food & Wine Festival, happening this coming weekend, from 3 – 5 August. The Slow Food & Wine festival is a way for the producers of the much-loved Robertson Wine Valley to share their belief in a slow way of life with food and wine enthusiasts who want to encounter the countryside at a leisurely pace.
Generally the public shoot passed Robertson enroute to another destination and then they miss all the good things Robertson has to offer. That’s why the valley’s forward-thinking producers decided to stop, collaborate and create a platform for visitors who want to slow things right down and enjoy a 360° experience that takes them into the thick of things in Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Roberts
For one weekend during the heart of winter each year, the valley’s best-loved winemakers, food purveyors and experience providers push out the boat to welcome you into the fold for the Slow Food & Wine Festival. This includes everything from fireside dinners in the homes of the valley’s winemakers to wine and dine evenings in underground cellars, single vineyard tastings, food and wine pairings. Listen below as Tracey chatted to Mira Weiner, Director and Creative Networker for the Robertson Slow Food & Wine Festival.
