Wine Show 2012 and the Vaal Meander Wine Route 25 Jun 2012

Welcome to the Vaal Meander Wine Route

Gauteng's very own Wine Route!

If you were planning to treat yourself to some serious Wine Tasting this year as part of your New Year's Resolution, then Gauteng's very own Wine Route, which is on for 8 weeksfrom the 7th July to the 26th August is the answer to your wish.

In its 9th year of existence the Vaal River Meander Wine Route discerns itself from all the other Wine Routes in South Africa,in that it has a record number of ways in which you can be transported to the various venues to enjoy this annual “Winter Wine Fest”. So you may want to make use of one of the following modes of transport to get you there:

  • Vintage car
  • Luxury cruiser
  • Limousine
  • Helicopter
  • Speedboat
  • Houseboat
  • Donkey cart
  • Tour-bus/Taxi
Or wine lovers might just want to enjoy a casual meander in their own cars visiting the venues around the Vaal who partner themselves with the best South African Wine Estates and for those 8 weeks become a mini Wine Estate - but with optional add on experiences such as;
  • Enjoying a Luncheon aboard a luxurious boat cruising down the river while sipping great wine
  • Meandering in a Vintage Car between the different Wine
    Tasting Venues
  • Making a weekend of it and cruising aboard a luxurious House Boat as you throw anchor and moor at the different venues along the Vaal River
  • Experience a quaint French Restaurant with all the frills of fine dining - while sipping great win
  • Spending the weekend at a Lodge or Hotel filled with wine tasting, spa treatments and great food.

There are so many different ways this Vaal River Meander Wine Route has the edge over other Wine Routes - including packages for large corporate businesses to treat their Staff or Clients to a well-priced Wine Tasting experience with food pairing - every experience with a distinctive edge. This unique winter outing has grown in popularity and attracts visitors from all over the country side to come and taste or buy some of the best wines the Cape has to offer. Each venue hosts between 8 to 25 wines. Tastings are only R20.00 per person and all wine is sold at “cost plus 10%”.
