PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - In celebration of harvest time that has arrived in the Plettenberg Bay winelands, a local vineyard will be hosting the third Truck & Vine festival.
With harvest time taking place between February and April each year, Kay & Monty Vineyards, along with MediaBoxx Events, have created the festival to celebrate the occasion.
This year the event will take place at the vineyard on Sunday 17 February and include wine, food, music and entertainment.
Just like previous events, organisers have a variety of options for the discerning food and wine lover with a host of gourmet food trucks, local wines and craft beer. To add to the experience there will also be live music and entertainment for the youngsters – and some wine stomping.
There are currently 18 wine farms in the area, from Harkerville to the Crags, after the industry was established in 2000 by local Peter Thorpe, who planted the first vines of sauvignon blanc on his Bramon Wine Estate in the Crags. This became the first wine estate that far east of the Western Cape.
Today the area is recognised as one of South Africa's "Wine of Origin" regions. The area's climate makes it more conducive to cooler-climate wines such as chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir varieties. The area also creates méthode cap classique-style wines – produced in the traditional Champagne method.
Tickets bought in advance online through Quicket are R100 per person and children under 12 enter for free. Tickets at R150 will also be available at the gate on the day.
