Hazendal: A Night of Wonders

Hazendal Wine Estate celebrated 320 years since its establishment and 25 years of the Voloshin family ownership with the launch of an initiative aimed to introduce the concept of education through play to children in disadvantaged communities. This was revealed at A Night of Wonders, a Benefit Gala Dinner Show and Auction on 8 November 2019.

The auction, which had many guests enthralled and wildly entertained raised together with the ticket sales for the event over R750 000. All the proceeds from the Gala will be used to provide as many WonderBoxes as possible to children in need, spreading the wonder of the Wonderdal to many, as well as giving them the opportunity to experience Wonderdal firsthand.

The funds will also be utilized to provide much-needed equipment for the South African Circus Art Academy and the Tshwane Cultural Group.

The support helped Hazendal make a positive impact on the lives of many disadvantaged kids who will benefit from the proceeds.

About Hazendal

For more than three centuries, Hazendal has been a widely recognised Cape Winelands landmark and has transitioned from its humble origins as a grain and livestock farm in the 17th century, into a notable premium wine producer and estate. After closing in 2017 for major renovations, Hazendal has opened its doors again in December 2018 to reveal a destination offering which is completely unique and distinctive. What was initially planned as merely a revamp of Hazendal’s tasting rooms soon evolved into a full-blown re-imagination of the Hazendal Experience. The result is unlike anything experienced on a South African wine estate before, and the re-envisioned Hazendal is set to become a sought-after destination for locals and tourists alike.
