Get ready to book your Plett Wine Weekend on 25 & 26 November for the Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival

The fourth annual weekend-long festival dedicated to MCC and other boutique wines is coming in November! To a sun-drenched and sparkling coastal location: Central Beach in Plettenberg Bay.

Enjoy more than 30 different wines from 9 local producers in Plett. Eat local and drink local, and drink local bubblies. Great news for food and wine lovers along the Garden Route and beyond.

A fantastic Plett experience with the gorgeous Indian Ocean as your backdrop. Upscale, entertaining, educational, with a touch of class; this is a weekend not to miss!

Saturday starts with the main event, a showcase of more than 30 local wines to try with artisan cheeses, charcuterie, breads, savouries and oysters alongside local musicians. As the sun starts to set and the crowd shuffles in, the drinks will be bubbly and the music will be hot.

Sunday is a repeat of the main event, but with the introduction of a wine theatre featuring popular industry speakers for those with a different kind of thirst.

Sunday is complete with jazzy tunes, sun drenched beach vibes and a final ending at sundown for a chilled early night.
