Wacky Wine Weekend 2016

Wacky Wine Weekend returns again to Robertson from 2-5 June 2016 with outdoor adventures, live music, fine dining and a myriad of entertainment for kids.

The primary goal of the weekend in Robertson and surrounds is based on the sentiment of sharing and acquiring greater insight and appreciation of the Robertson Wine Valley's wines. That being said, everyone should embrace the opportunity to sample and purchase some of the finest wines in the region.

To eliminate drinking and driving, a zero tolerance approach has been adopted by organisers of the festival. This has been done through introducing the 'Designated Driver system', an incentive that rewards the designated drivers with complimentary breakfast, coffee, and soft drinks. The Buddy Bus is an alternate choice with the bus ferrying you to and from your accommodation on festival days.

Wacky Wine Weekend celebrates their lucky 13th year of creating wine, enjoying it and establishing a successful wine route. Organiser of the event, Beatrix Galloway says: "In its lucky 13th year, the Wacky Wine Weekend has a new image. With this we want to show the consumer that we are serious about creating our wines but we can still have fun doing so."

Event-goers can create their own picnic basket by selecting a miscellany of treats, such as local olives, cheese, charcuterie and preserves from the delis, or warm up with hearty soups.  All the different wineries will have their own programmes, with a host of special activities planned. Expect a lineup that will thrill the fun-seeker, novice or wine aficionado.

Music-lovers enjoy live music such as Afrikaans, blues, folk, country and classic tunes, featuring artists such as Karen Zoid, Manouche, Bottomless Coffee and other local artists.

If you consider yourself athletic then don't miss out on multiple outdoor adventures - think golf, horseshoe throw, vineyard trail run, colour run, MTB rides, 'shot for shot chip' challenges to name a few.

A passport at a cost of R150 must be purchased by all visitors at their first port of call. This comprises a stylish tasting glass, Wacky Wine Weekend hamper bag, festival program and a bottle of water. Some activities are free of charge while others run on a pay-as-you-go system.
