Taste the first of the vintage around the world’s largest winelands rock: OmmiBerg ‘Round the Rock 2015

Immerse yourself in the thick of the harvest for vintage 2015 around the iconic Paarl rock, the world’s largest winelands outcrop, at OmmiBerg ‘Round the Rock festival on Saturday 7 March.

Be the first to sample the vintage of award winning wineries such as Boland Cellar, Nederburg, Rhebokskloof and KWV. Squelch your way through a grape stomp, blend wine and take part in a master class, or recline on rolling lawns with delectable tapas-style eats while enjoying live performances from popular local bands.

Competitive guests can try for a prize at Grape Stomping, wine blending, Wine ‘Boeresport’, cork shooting or “wine QI” – but if that sounds a little too much like work, vino therapy foot massage might be your thing.

Tempt the kids with face painting, magicians, goat-carts and pony rides while you relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. Take advantage of the OmmiBerg wine specials and stock up on  some wines to enjoy at home while you reminisce about the another enjoyable day around the big ‘berg’ (the added bonus being that you won’t get lost!)

Early bird tickets for those over 18 years are priced at R100 from www.webtickets.co.za, or R120 on the day at participating estates, while accompanied children under 18 enter for free. Ticket price include: Access to over 15 participating wineries, tasting of Unfiltered wine, live music and selected events.  Sit-down meals and special activities should be booked before hand are payable separately.
