Resolution Trail Run @Klapmuts – 19 Jan 2020

It’s the new year and you made the resolution so now all you need to do is to get out there and put your resolutions to the test. What better way than running through beautiful vineyards up Klapmutskop with spectacular views of the Winelands and Table Mountain in the distance.

This event is a firm favourite, as everyone is ready to make a ‘fresh start’ on the trails of Klapmutskop near Stellenbosch. There are four distances to choose from so whether you a beginner or experienced, there is something for all abilities.

Delheim Harvest Festival – 25 January 2020

The 2020 Delheim Harvest Festival again promises a feast of entertainment, complete with the ever popular and unmissable grape picking and stomping. There will be live music, tractor rides and plenty of food and drink provided in true festival-style by various food stalls.

Among the highlights is a gift included with every adult ticket sold – a surprise reward for your hard work in the vineyards. Without giving away too much, this is a keeper: a grand gift for a grand occasion.
