    New year brings new style to Delheim’s harvest celebration

    Ease into 2018 with the first Winelands festival of the season

    Mother Nature’s annual bounty of grapes has always been a cause for celebration at Delheim, the famous Stellenbosch wine estate. This year’s Delheim Harvest Festival will however, adopt refreshed style when it returns for one day only, on Saturday, 27 January.

    Picture an afternoon of laughter and bonhomie in the cool shade of the giant oak trees. Along with the opportunity to share in grape picking and stomping and the delights of outstanding wine, there is also great food and live music entertainment by the multi-instrumentalist rock folk duo, Bottomless Coffee Band.

    Out with the old and in with the new, the Delheim Harvest Festival invites guests to come and relax at one long harvest table, whilst feasting on sumptuous harvest fare.It’s an out-of-this-world spread for fun-loving grown-ups, sharing in the spirit of kinship at the table of the winemakers and Delheim family.

    This year, only 120 seats are available – a reason to book as soon as possible. Make it a group affair and bring some friends along! You too can discover the truth in Delheim’s promise brandished on its logo: Delheim - Worth The Journey.

    The annual harvest festival toasts these fruits of the season and highlights the importance of communal celebration to the family. It’s about food and wine lovers coming together; and, just as hard as the Delheim team works during harvest, so too can it party as true acolytes of Bacchus.

    The Delheim Harvest Festival gets underway at 11:30, with the harvest feast served at 13h00. Grape picking starts at 12h00 and stomping takes place after lunch. Dress comfortable for these fun activities.

    Tickets cost R650 per person with each including a seat at the long table; a bottle of Delheim wine per couple; as well as grape-stomping action and live music. For all your happy sipping needs a cash bar will be available, featuring selected Delheim wines.

    A long table for the youngsters will also be provided. Tickets for children cost R120 but those under four get in for free.

    Date: 15, 16, 30  June and 1 July

    Cost: R695 per person Note: Tickets are limited to 40 per day. No group bookings allowed due to the intimate nature of this event.

    It's nearly mushroom time! Soon, mushroom foragers will head into the forest in search of delicious delicacies that only pop out for a short time every year. Our popular Mushroom Forage will open up the mesmerising world of fungi and teach you how to identify, forage and clean your very own hand-picked mushrooms.

    Our Mushroom Forage was awarded “Highly Commended” in the Best Wine Event category in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Challenge 2017. It is a phenomenal achievement to be recognized amongst top international wineries so you can be sure you’ll enjoy a high calibre, memorable experience!

    These fun(gi) excursions have run annually over a number of years and become hugely popular due to the magical experience as well as the hosts themselves - Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary “The Mushroom Fundi” Goldman. Both are experienced foragers and talented educators, who lead these ‘silent hunts’ along with the family’s inimitable Jack Russells.

    The day will begin with an enlightening workshop on mushroom identification in the farm’s vat cellar, followed by a short walk to the mushroom hunt in Delheim’s lush pine forest. Foragers will then head for the estate’s Garden Restaurant where Chef Bruce von Pressentin lays on a three-course meal that showcases these flavoursome marvels.

    This unique gourmet food and wine experience is for adults only and costs R695 per person. It includes an informative workshop, mushroom hunt, a tantalising mushroom-themed food and wine experience and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy at home. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and a warm jacket and should bring their own pocket knife and baskets for the hunt. The events will still take place even if it rains and all the fun starts at 09:30 until 14:30 but book off the rest of your day to make the most of the beautiful, serene surroundings.

    Warning: As fun and rewarding as foraging for mushrooms is, always practice caution as there are many varieties that are not safe to eat. We suggest taking photos of edible varieties to easily identify and ensuring that they are cooked as few mushrooms are safe to consume raw.

    Please note: Although these events take place at the time of year when there is the best chance of finding wild mushrooms and the ‘moon is right’, Delheim cannot guarantee that you will find any on the day.

    We ward off the winter blues with Jazz and Cheese Fondue indulgences in our downstairs cellar. This cosy cellar, snug with low ceilings and rustic candlelit tables, sets the scene for families and friends to huddle around fondue pots: ease into a laid-back Sunday afternoon, enriched with lingering aromas of pungent melting cheese, quality wines and jazzy tunes.

    Delheim swirls their cheese fondue to an authentic Swiss recipe that oozes deliciousness and combines Emmental, Gruyere and white wine for a hearty ‘blast from the past’. The fondue makes its way to your table with oven fresh baguette dippers and vegetable crudités. Guests can also order starters and dessert from Delheim’s restaurant menu at an additional cost.
