Wacky Wine Weekend: This event is held from Friday the 3rd of June to Sunday the 5th of June 2011 in the Robertson Wine Valley in the Western Cape. Join thousands of wine lovers at South Africa’s biggest regional wine festival. Wineries from Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson host extra activities to wine tasting, which includes outdoor, sport, adventure, family-fun, kids stuff, live music and fine dining (to name but a few). The winter months are a great time to escape from life in the city and spend time with family and friends. If you have not finalised your winter weekend away the Wine Valley’s 6th annual Wacky Wine Weekend might be ideal for you. As part of our commitment to bring visitors a safe festival, a zero tolerance policy will be upheld with regards to drinking and driving. Visitors are asked to assign a designated driver or make use of the Buddy Bus. The Buddy bus enables visitors to rent a taxi for the day for a minimum of 10 people. The service is available from 08h00 – 22h00. Visitors will be picked up and dropped again at their accommodation. However, this service must be booked in advance. Many of the activities need to be booked in advance (directly with the wineries) and visitors are strongly advised to do so sooner rather than later as they tend to be booked out rather quickly.

Greyton Genadendal Classics for All: This event is held from the 3rd of June to the 5th of June 2011 in Greyton in the Western Cape. Eight concerts will be performed in the historic churches of Greyton and Genadendal, as well as in smaller venues in these two neighbouring villages. The focus of the Greyton and Genadendal Classics for All festival is on classical music concerts, but there will also be workshops for children, art exhibitions, wine tastings and various food events. The line-up includes a concert by the Cool Classic Kidz, a group of the most talented classical music protégés in South Africa, some as young as 9 years old, as well as performances by Steinway pianist Charl du Plessis and violinist Zanta Hofmeyer in “Beethoven Tango”, classical guitarist Carol Kinsey, the Cape Town Opera Studio Singers, and a gala concert presented by pianist Philippus Hugo and Friends. The highlight of this year’s festival will be the performance of Mozart’s Requiem (regarded as one of the most profound beacons of the entire classical music repertoire) in the historic Moravian church in Genadendal. Tickets are available via Computicket. For more information phone 028 2549414.
