BACK TO THE WINELANDS!

 

THE SA CHEESE FESTIVAL IS GOING PLACES WITH FOUR POP-UP PICNICS

The award-winning SA Cheese Festival returns after two years and brings an exciting new basket to the table! Cheese and wine lovers can look forward to a brand-new experience – a month-long journey of discovery with a series of SA Cheese Festival Pop-up Picnics that takes place over four weekends in April 2022 at four different destinations – from the Winelands to Walker Bay to the West Coast and back to the Winelands.

The SA Cheese Festival Pop-up Picnics kick off on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April 2022 at Warwick Wine Estate outside Stellenbosch. Next, we take the road to Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate outside Hermanus on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 April 2022. Then, we discover the West Coast route to Groote Post outside Darling on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April 2022. To end off April and to start the new month of May, we rediscover Sandringham outside Stellenbosch on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May 2022.

Come and experience how this popular festival unfolds into a true journey of discovery – with a winning recipe of quality. At every SA Cheese Festival Pop-up Picnic, a variety of exhibitors will offer everything you need for a picnic adventure, from picnic baskets to local, international and artisanal cheeses, selected wine, craft beer and gin, as well as exceptional local products. Visitors can also look forward to entertainment programmes with popular artists, tasting demonstrations and other interesting activities. The picnic times are from 10:00 to 18:00 daily.
