There’s an exciting new wine festival coming up that you don’t want to miss and its bursting with authentic Swartland farm-style hospitality. 

The inaugural Swartland Sosiaal Wynfees is set to draw visitors to the dynamic Swartland Wine region this April. If you’re still looking for an ideal escape for the long weekend at the end of April, look no further. 

The festival will be held at The Moorrees in Moorreesburg (just one hour outside Cape Town). Participating wineries include top Swartland wineries including superstars Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines, Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards, Org de Rac Organic Wine Estate, Riebeek Wine Co, Pulpit Rock Wine and Marras Wines, as well as famous out-of-towners Zevenwacht Wine Estate, MAN Wines, Lievland Vineyards, Journey’s End Vineyards, Mount Rozier Estate, Nico van Merwe Wines and Anthonij Rupert Wyne.

Each winery will have six highlight wines available for sampling for the duration of the Sosiaal. In addition, there will be plenty of all-day live entertainment, various foodie delights to fill up on, and a fun family-friendly atmosphere to enjoy.
