Save the date for this year’s Shiraz & Charcuterie Festival, which takes place once again at the picturesque Anthonij Rupert Wyne on Saturday, 26 May (11am to 4pm). This highlight on the annual Franschhoek Wine Valley calendar makes for the ideal late Autumn outing, combining some of South Africa’s finest Shiraz wines with delicious charcuterie from artisanal producers.
This is the perfect opportunity to taste Anthonij Rupert Wyne’s range of Shiraz wines, which include the limited release Anthonij Rupert Syrah, the site-specific Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Shiraz and Protea Shiraz. Anthonij Rupert Wyne will be joined by 18 of the country’s top Shiraz producing estates, which include Thelema Mountain Vineyards, Mullineux Wines, Rickety Bridge Winery, Stark-Condé Wines and Hartenberg Wine Estate, who will all be showcasing their wines for your enjoyment.
As you sip and savour your way through the wines – with their alluring notes of spice and dark fruits – pair them with the wide range of tantalising local and international charcuterie on offer – featuring everything from salamis and cured hams to flavoured chorizos. Nibble on the samples, choose your favourites and purchase them to enjoy at the festival or to take home. A bountiful Anthonij Rupert Wyne Harvest Table, adorned with fresh seasonal salads, homemade exotic mushroom and fontina arancini and olives, pickles and chillies – will complement the tasty line-up.
The Macaroon Bar, featuring decadent sensations such as Salted Caramel, Chocolate Cherry and Milk Tart guarantees a perfectly sweet finish.
