Excelsior is located in one of South Africa’s premier wine producing areas and arguably one with the most active social calendar, bringing wine fans fun events like Wine on the River and the annual Wacky Wine Weekend. The Robertson Wine Valley is fairly new in the South African wine context with its formation in 1983. It represents 48 wineries from the nearby Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson and Peter de Wet serves on its Board. Its aim is to market the valley for its great wines, accommodation and lifestyle and in August, it is bringing Robertson to Johannesburg with its Robertson Wine Valley Festival @ Kievitskroon, 2-3 August.
