Hands on Harvest


Be sure to mark 7 Feb – 29 March in your diary – it’s the Robertson Wine Valley Hands-on Harvest festival! This is the 7th edition of this boutique event and guests can look forward to grape picking, barrel tasting, grape stomping, grape and wine tastings, live distilling and much more.

On March 14 we will be hosting the Excelsior Harvest and Blending Experience with winemaker Johan Stemmet. The event starts at 8am with freshly baked ‘mosbolletjies’ and coffee, after which we will pick grapes, stomp them and learn to use a basket press. Guests will then blend their own wine and also enjoy a farm tour and barrel room tasting. The event ends with a light lunch at Graze @ Excelsior and a game of boulles on the lawn.

Cost is R275 pp and we can accommodate 30 people. Book at info@excelsior.co.za or phone 023 615 1980.
