Festival Highlights
ATKV-OESFEES FEEDBACK

Thousands of revellers filled the lawns of Solms-Delta wine estate on Saturday 22 March at the ATKV-Oesfees, as they celebrated the end of the Cape Winelands harvest, in a day of music, food and wine.

Local talent and recently discovered musical gems from the remote Richtersveld shared the stage with headliners Theuns Jordaan, Robbie Wessels, Karen Zoid, Loukmaan Adams, Valiant Swart and Tribal Echo.

The annual Boland harvest festival, now in its seventh year, has established itself as an intrinsic part of the Cape Winelands, where everyone, from the farm workers to farm owners, come together to kuier and vastrap, paying tribute to the Cape heritage.

Chef Shaun's Recipe
HEARTY LAMB & LENTIL SOUP

Autumn has officially arrived and has brought with it occasionally cooler weather with more frequent downpours forcing us to get ready for winter and accept that those long summer days are almost behind us for the next few months.

The positive side of the cooler weather is that we can now enjoy soups, broths and hearty meals like Chef Shaun's recipe for tasty  Lamb, Lentil and Wild Rosemary Soup! Click here to download the recipe.

Delta Trap
COMING UP - 20 APRIL!

Hot on the heels (so to speak!) of the Delta Draf, the third annual Delta Trap off-road cycle race, is on Sunday 20 April 2014. Like the Draf, the route winds through stunning countryside in a 20km loop amongst working vineyards and along the banks of the Dwars river. Three quarters of the race is on farm roads, with a mix of sandy sections, some harder surfaces with stones and some short sections of single track. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall in the 60km team event as well as for the top male/female in the 60km, 40km and 20km individual events. All finishers will enter a draw to win bicycle accessories, wine and restaurant vouchers.  This race is already a firm favourite on the racing calendar, so why not make a day of it and pre-order a picnic at Fyndraai restaurant or book a table for lunch restaurant@solms-delta.co.za.
