Vaal Wine Route Meander

Vaal Wine Route
Sun 23 June - Sun 4 August
From 12:00 - 17:00
Gates close at 16:00
R30 - R50
The Vaal River Meander Wine Route is a great treat to beat the winter blues with a host of unique Venues to visit on or around the Vaal River area, each offering wine tastings of at least 8 wines with some venues offering up to 16 wines to taste. It is a relaxed and pleasant, well-priced outing where anyone can learn to appreciate the wonderful wines South Africa boasts - all in a welcoming and relaxed environment. Perfect for wine connoisseurs, but also for new visitors who are not confident regarding wines.

You will pay for Wine Tasting at each Venue you visit, a different Wine Farm with their range of wines can be found at every Venue. Wine Tasting Costs are:

R30 for 8 wines
R40 for 12 wines
R50 for 16 wines

Opening times for the wine tastings are 12h00-midday to 18h00.

Most of the venues will be selling wines at cost plus 10%, so you can also take advantage of the opportunity to get wines you really enjoy at very good prices.

Gauteng’s most popular 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 enjoy the winter wine feast. Be it by house boat, luxury cruiser, wine route taxi, speedboat, tour-bus or in your own car - the Vaal River Meander Wine Route has more ways to enjoy than any other Wine Route in South Africa.

The different venues where you can enjoy all these tastings, are so diverse and offer contrasting experiences as do their wines; with the single common thread of each presenting great South African wines. You might select a venue where you can enjoy eloquently sipping wine at a classy hotel; or in front of a roaring fireplace in a cosy pub; or wine tasting with a bit of trying your hand at Lady Luck; or enjoy savouring wine as you cruise aboard a luxurious Cruiser down Millionaire’s Mile.

There are optional extras to add to your experience, such as spending a weekend aboard a House Boat as you throw anchor and moor at the different venues along the Vaal River for wine tasting; spend the weekend at a Lodge or Hotel; enjoy exceptional wine and food pairing or treat yourself to any of the spa treatments packages by taxi or self-drive.

Be sure to get your 2019 Vaal Wine Route Passport available at all participating Vaal River Meander Wine Route venues, for the full selection of Venues, dining, accommodation, cruising and other experiences on offer and the wines they will each be showcasing or visit the official website.

The first day of the 6-week 2019 Vaal River Meander Wine Route starts on Sunday the 23rd of June 2019 and runs every weekend on Saturday and Sunday until Sunday the 4th August 2019.

Be sure to book your table with your choice of venue as space is limited - bookings are essential.

Tasting fee payable at each venue
