In the heart of the Overberg a quiet village comes alive a few times a year thanks to the wine fraternity’s creative spirit. On the first weekend of Spring, Bot River wineries open their gates and their cellars for an extra special celebration. You can follow the map and taste new releases, talk to the winemaker and lunch your way around Bot River to your heart’s content. There’s enough choice and the festivities extend to the Saturday evening when visitors can warm infront of braai fires, circle the floor in dance, do a food pairing or… find another option from the many activities available. Make sure you get to Bot River before the Spring of 2018 or you are gauranteed to miss out.
Wineries visited include Luddite, Beaumont, Genevieve, Wildekrans and Villion.
