Not only does May bring with it cooler weather, but it’s also time for the annual Shiraz & Charcuterie Festival. A highlight on the Cape Winelands social calendar, this Autumn inspired event once again takes  place at the spectacular Anthonij Rupert Wine Estate on Saturday, 30 May (11am to 4pm), affording visitors the opportunity to sample some of SA’s finest Shiraz wines. The accompanying charcuterie from artisanal producers complements the wines perfectly.

Guests will have the opportunity to taste Anthonij Rupert Wyne’s range of Shiraz wines, which include the limited release Anthonij Rupert Syrah, the site-specific Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Shiraz as well as the Protea Shiraz.  Joining Anthonij Rupert Wyne are the country’s top Shiraz producing estates, who will be showcasing their fine wines for your enjoyment.

As you sip and savour your way through the wines – with their alluring notes of spice and dark fruits – pair them with the selection of delectable local and international charcuterie on offer – featuring everything from salamis and cured hams to flavoured chorizos. Nibble on the samples, choose your favourites and purchase them to enjoy at the festival or to take home. A lavish Anthonij Rupert Wyne Harvest Table, adorned with fresh seasonal salads, homemade Truffle arancini, sweet and sour estate olives, jalapenos and the estate raised Angus Beef burger– are all a match made in culinary heaven to complement the superb wine line-up. The Macaroon Bar, featuring an assortment of decadent flavours, guarantees a perfectly sweet finish.
