Situated in the heart of the Durbanville Wine Valley, The Quarry at Hillcrest Estate is a magnificently picturesque stretch of land spanning 7 000 metres. Its rolling lawns, set against the spectacular quarry cliffs, is the perfect spot for a festival celebrating our favourite vices: oysters, bubbly and sauvignon blanc!
Formerly known as the Oyster & Champagne Festival, this year’s event celebrates South Africa’s best oyster, MCC and sparkling wine producers, as well as a range of tipples from Europe: champagne from France, prosecco from Italy and cava from Spain.
Your R200 entrance fee includes five free tastings from a variety of producers: DGB, Hillcrest Estate, Profumi D’Italia Marketing, Van Loveren Family Vineyards, Krone Méthode Cap Classique, and KWV. There’ll also be a variety of food stalls, selling a range of tasty eats from chips (Chip & Dip) and fish (King Neptune) to burgers (Yummies Fast Food) and coffees (Cafe 2 Go).
Oh, and if you’re a competitive type, bring your A game, as there are numerous friendly contests taking place on the day, including a shuck-and-slurp and a best-dressed competition. Other entertainment on the day includes live music courtesy of The Pedestrians, Nhoza, Kimmy C; and celebrity-chef demonstrations…
The dress code is white and gold, and regrettably, no under-18s are permitted.
