This weekend the Cape’s finest wine producers invite you to go large – literally – at The Big Bottle Festival! Back for its fifth year, the Big Bottle Festival will be serving up many rare, large format bottles for this two-day food and wine event. It’s selling out fast, but there are plenty of special experiences with availability still.
Nearly 50 of South Africa’s best wine producers have hauled out some really special wines to taste. Big bottles are known to be produced with a lower oxygen to wine ratio, meaning you get to experience a greater depth of flavour.
The walkabout tasting on Saturday is the highlight of the weekend. Big-name chefs will have snacks and small dishes on offer to sample while you swig – they all, naturally, have been prepared to complement the wines.
Venue: The Cape Town Club on Friday
Date: 21 and Saturday, 22 August 2015.
