Hunt for and gather an array of delicious delicacies, before a enjoying a fungi feast at this esteemed Stellenbosch estate.

If foraging for mushrooms in a lush pine forest sounds appealing, then you’re going to want to bookmark some dates from March until July 2018, because fungi fever has arrived in stunning Stellenbosch.

Forage and feast

At these fungi-fabulous events, you’ll learn first-hand how to forage for and cook wild edible mushrooms. But, please note: this year these workshops are only available to members of Delheim’s Wine Club. So, you’ll need to sign up, which is super-easy: simply order 12 bottles of your favourite Delheim wine and voilà – and you’ll be able to enjoy loads of benefits (mushroom foraging is just one).

This year’s format includes a short presentation, during which foragers will be shown which mushrooms to look out for – and which to avoid –  before setting out with an expert guide on a forage. Once you’ve gathered your fungi, there’ll be a mushroom-cooking demonstration, followed by a hearty, fungi-focused lunch, accompanied by delicious Delheim wine.

Pop-ups aplenty

This year, foragers are limited to two excursions each. The first one will take place in March, April or May (depending on the first rains) in and among the towering pines, and will be made up of four winners of the Delheim Wine Club lucky draw (and their plus ones).

The second excursion, in June or July, is open to all Delheim Wine Club members and costs R650 per person.

Dates for upcoming fungi foraging

Keep your eyes glued to your emails, as the confirmation of the exact foraging dates will be confirmed two days in advance, as they are dependent on the occurrence of mushrooms.

    I am a gastronomic tourism operator in Brazil-Rio de Janeiro. I will be in Stellenbosch on the 22nd of june ,to know the wine route and set up our itinerary. I really enjoyed this experience and would like to know if it would be possible to include it in my script. Could send more information, price and photos. Do you commission agencies, would you have any differentiated value?

      Hi Sonia. Thanks for you message. You’d need to contact the estate directly. Contact details on the righthand side. Good luck!
