The Lord Charles Hotel hosts the 9th annual Taste the Helderberg – a festival aimed at foodies and vino enthusiasts alike. For one night, wine farms and restaurants in the Helderberg region showcase their products at this “flavour smorgasbord” event. Guests are encouraged to don something purple in the spirit of this year’s theme colour.
Wine-lovers have the opportunity to get an early-bird view and sampling of the region’s latest wines, as well as tasters of the vintages that have put Helderberg on the map of international connoisseurs. Also on offer is food by local eateries, and the chance to learn more about wine-making specifics from the winemakers and viticulturists themselves, all set to a backdrop of live music.
2019 dates and times to be confirmed.
“The best part of wine tasting is meeting new people who also enjoy wine tasting and then talking to them about wine tasting, and eventually also about life, love and the universe.” Read Freda Scheffler’s review of Taste the Helderberg 2015.
