Taste the Helderberg 2017

The NH Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West is set to be transformed into the home of the 2017 Taste the Helderberg showcase this Winter - a one-stop wine route of home-grown happiness with more than 25 prominent wine producers who will share their wines with a cosy crowd.

This food and wine affair celebrates the talents and tastes unique to the thriving Helderberg region on 15 June 2017 and is a sensory showcase serving up a more than 100 premium wines, dishes from eminent local chefs and artisanal producers to warm the cockles.

Food lovers are also in for a royal treat at this year’s Taste the Helderberg, now in its 9th year, where a delicious smorgasbord of sumptuous delights ranging from signature dishes to decadent sweets will perk the most jaded palates.

“Here in the Helderberg we enjoy life and it tastes delicious! This diverse sub-route of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes is certainly hip and happening and it is its sensory soul that we invite people to come and savour at Taste the Helderberg,” shares Elmarie Rabe, Manager of the Stellenbosch Wine Route.

“This social event combines some of my favourite forms of nurturing people into a festive celebration. Good, fuss-free food, excellent wines, a fun night on the town in the company of amicable locals and great music. So don’t let the cold keep you away from this rare opportunity to indulge in this hub of Helderberg deliciousness, all under one roof,” advises Elmarie.

The Helderberg Winelands area stretches from Somerset West to Stellenbosch and Sir Lowry’s Pass Village, with some of the country’s most lauded cellars, restaurants and eateries adding their passions and pleasures to this booming area.

Limited tickets for Taste the Helderberg 2017 are available at the cost of R100 per person. The ticket includes a wine glass and the opportunity to taste some of the best wines in the country. Numerous restaurants will tempt the taste buds with mouth-watering portions of their popular dishes which will be on sale throughout the evening.

Enthusiasts can get their happy on in the Helderberg from 17h00 to 21h00 and are encouraged to come straight after work to make the most of the evening.
