Groves & Vineyards Summer Festival

This year saw the 9th edition of the ever-popular Groves & Vineyards Festival, an extravaganza of Mediterranean flavours blended with the best of South African sounds. Now if that isn’t a recipe for success, we don’t know what is. The last drop has been drained, and the last note has faded – but Groves & Vineyards will be back before you know it!
Italians do summer better than anyone else. Whether you’re talking dazzling sunshine, bountiful harvests, or the happy laughter of children playing in olive groves – we practically invented the season.

Which means that the Groves & Vineyards Summer Festival at Casalinga on the weekend of September 9th and 10th – should be an unmissable date in your summer diary.

Tickets – including exclusive VIP packages are already on sale here. It might be cold outside right now, but we’re looking forward to a warmer, sunnier future. A future that will feature a bonus edition of our favourite foodie and music Festival.

Can you picture yourself strolling through dappled orchard sunlight, or relaxing on a blanket in the sunshine, a glass in one hand and a delicious hand-crafted morsel in the other? Or dancing to the latest beats from SA’s top live music acts. Or picking a thoughtful gift for someone who means as much to you as summer itself? Then you’ve just imagined being at the Groves & Vineyards Summer Festival.

Make the daydream a reality today by booking your ticket, and then come and while away some lazy summer hours surrounded by over 80 exhibitors from top wine producers, artisanal food stalls and pop-up craft beer stands and boutiques.

The Summer Edition of Groves & Vineyards will have everything you know and love from our Festival earlier this year – plus the chance to work on your tan a little. If you missed our first Festival of 2017, then don’t repeat the mistake – make sure you act now and get your ticket.

Bring your kids along, too – there’ll be plenty of entertainment and delicious goodness for them to enjoy, making this a wonderful day out for all the family.

The gardens of Casalinga will once again be the setting for this Festival which brings the best of rural living to the very fringes of the city. Non-stop live musical entertainment will keep your toes tapping, and your taste-buds will love you for giving them the day out.

Summer has always been our favourite season – and now there’s one more reason to be a summer lover. We’d love to see you there – please don’t disappoint us. After all, we’ll only have wine to console ourselves with…

Beverage Exhibitors

Whether your chosen tipple is a crafty gin or a crisp white, beer on tap or a full-bodied red, thirst will not be an issue at the Groves and Vineyards Festival. For now, we’ve bottled up the news of which estates and craft brewers and distillers will be in attendance, but we can’t keep the cork in forever…

Olive Product Exhibitors

Organic Exhibitors

Set aside the pesticides and put the bug spray away, it’s time to reconnect with the soil and enjoy some organic treats. Who cares about spots on your apples, when they’re this sweet and crunchy? And that’s just the start of this amazing harvest…

Artizan Food Exhibitors

Other Exhibitors

Is there more to life than grapes and olives? Well, yes, there is! Be sure to check out some of our other exhibitors, too – we’ve invited along a few friends to share in the Festival fun. Like all the best ingredients, they’ll blend in perfectly, and add to the overall flavour. Enjoy!
