YOUNG WINE, DELICIOUS FOOD AND FUN AT NEDERBURG DURING OMMIBERG 2017 Let Nederburg, the 2017 Platter’s South African Wine Guide ‘Winery of the Year’, entertain you during this year’s OmmiBerg Round the Rock Festival in Paarl, scheduled for Saturday, 4 March. Activities at Nederburg will start at 09:00 with a country-style bubbly breakfast at The Red Table, situated in the historic Nederburg manor house. It costs R125 a head, and is available to those who book and pre-pay. Other activities will also be on offer. Visitors will get to sample two 2017 vintage Nederburg wines in the making, participate in a barrel rolling race and stomp newly harvested grapes. Live music by local artists including Loren, known as Paarl’s ‘nightingale’; Amy Jones, a previous Idols contestant whose new single Sunrise is currently a hit on local radio; and the versatile Ramaine Barreira Lloyd, will keep visitors entertained in front of the manor house, where a variety of food stalls will offer tasty country-style fare in the welcoming gardens to enjoy with Nederburg wines. The Red Table will also be serving dishes from its à la carte menu, between 11:00 and 16:00. Scrumptious picnic baskets, at R185 per head, will also be offered. Booking and pre-payment is essential. Children are catered for in the form of a jumping castle, Slush Puppies and candy floss. As an added extra, visitors can enjoy a free cellar tour and 15-minute wine blending tutorial with Nederburg’s red winemaker, Samuel Viljoen, from 11:00 to 12:30. Nederburg wines by the glass or bottle will be on sale on the manor house lawn.
