Harvest and Blending experience at Excelsior Wine Estate’ – Hands on Harvest Festival from 24 to 25 Feb 2012.
Well, harvest time was truly great this year. We had so many events and great days here at Excelsior during the Hands on Harvest Festival.
The Great Grape Escape race was a huge success as were the grape stomping and farm tours.
The participants had a fun morning starting off with coffee and fresh mosbolletjies, then picking their own grapes, stomping them and learning to use a basket press. All did not end there. They could still Blend their Own Creation, as well as do a farm and cellar tour . After all this activity everyone relaxed with ‘a lovely bottle of Excelsior wine and a picnic.
We also had music group Romanz here with Nianell on a spectacular summer’s evening and the audience were wowed by the scenery, the great weather and the music.
All in all, February and March have been busy and great fun at Excelsior!
