The NH Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West is set to be transformed into the home of the 2016 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. These include the likes of Bilton, Ken Forrester Wines, Longridge, Lyngrove, Peter Falke, Somerbosch, Vergenoegd and Waterkloof Estate.
This food and wine affair celebrates the talents and tastes unique to the thriving Helderberg region on 15 June 2016 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 8th 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!

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.
