With the slow down post summer, we have had a chance to reflect on the phenomenal events hosted at Avondale in Paarl. The highlight has to be the Autumn Field to Feast. This sold out event saw an incredibly crafted menu which was served both in the gardens and in the restaurant. If you haven’t yet been to one of the Field to Feasts or didn’t manage to get a spot in the last one then book now for the Winter Field to Feast.

Here’s a list of our upcoming events in Paarl:

Shiraz and Venison Week at FABER restaurant – 13th to 16th June 2018

Knysna Wine Festival

During the Knysna Oyster Festival on the 2nd & 3rd July 2018 (Monday & Tuesday), between 17h30 and 20h30 on those two consecutive evenings.

The Knysna Wine Festival is the premiere showcase for local wines at the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival held annually in Knysna.

It has a proven track record of 12 years, and is associated with quality South African wines. “We originally wanted to launch an exclusive Wine Festival in the Garden Route. One which would allow guest to interact with high profile vintners while tasting their wines,” explained Belinda. And so the Knysna Wine Festival was born and it joined the successful Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival in 2005.
