Grape-stomping at Delheim
Kids will enjoy grape-stomping at the Delheim Start of the Harvest celebration on Sat 28 and Sun 29 from 12h00 daily. Adults R100, kids R80.
Delheim’s vibrant celebration of the start of the harvest is an opportunity for young and old to get knee-deep in grape juice and the harvesting action.
Events kick off at 12h00 on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24. Guest are welcomed with a glass of fermenting grape must (and grape juice for the kids) and a sweet ‘mosbolletjie’, a traditional harvest treat, to toast the new vintage, whilst grapes harvested on the day will be out for sampling.
Set to entertain the intrepid and amuse onlookers, the highlight of the day is the main grape stomping contest. This is a mushy clash in which teams barrel-roll, grape-grab and ultimately stomp their hearts out to produce the most juice. Fabulous prizes are up for grabs for the best team, boldest spirit, and best dressed on the day – so make up a team and get down and dirty!
Tickets cost R100 per adult (R80 per child under 12; kids under 2 are free). Your ticket includes entry to the event, a welcome drink, mosbolletjie, access to grape stomping and live music entertainment. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
Remember to pack a hat, blanket and sunscreen.
Pre-booking is essential to avoid disappointment.
Tickets available from Computicket or at the door.
