De Krans Blossom Festival

Save the date for De Krans Wine Cellar’s annual popular Blossom Festival, which takes place on Saturday, 31 August. De Krans Wine Cellar is situated in Calitzdorp, in the heart of the Klein Karoo and world famous Route 62. As is the case every year, the beautiful Spring blossoms symbolise the start of a new year for the fruit and wine industry in Calitzdorp, and it is also the perfect opportunity to say goodbye to Winter, with the 31st of August being the last official day of the colder season.

The 2019 festival promises to be a wonderful event, with plenty to do for all visitors.

This year’s fun run/fun walk (5 or 10km) will take place through the orchards in full bloom and the vineyards of De Krans. The entry fee will be R20 per person, or more if you want to make an extra donation to our charity of choice, Friends of Calitzdorp Animals, which will receive all entry fees and donations on the day. Starting time is 10am on the 31st of August. Pre-enter by submitting an email to dekrans@mweb.co.za, or enter on the day from 9am at De Krans. We hope to see many people from all over the Southern Cape join us for this worthy cause. Don’t forget your camera to take pictures of the spectacular blossoms on the apricot and peach trees along the route.

From 11am on the day Matt Hatters will get the feet tapping with their live music performance at De Krans. With their sounds in the background use the opportunity to taste 20 different award-winning wines from De Krans, including the 2019 Chenin Blanc, Pinotage Rosé and Moscato wines.

Our bistro will be ready to serve our excellent meals and the deli will offer a variety of very tasty produce made in our area. It will also serve two of our favourite cocktails made from our wines. It is recommended to book your table well in advance.

Come and join us at De Krans for this perfect family outing in Calitzdorp, a mere 30-minute drive from Oudtshoorn.
