Festivals in and around Franschhoek
|Blessing of the Harvest at Moreson Winery
Date: 04 Feb 2012 - 04 Feb 2012
Venue: Môreson Franschhoek
|At Môreson we believe that wine is about 3 things; passion, love and magic. It’s what we put into everything we do, into every bottle of wine we make and it’s what makes our annual Blessing of the Harvest an event not to be missed.
In 2012, come and join us and delight in making wine the old fashioned way. Handpick your own basket of grapes and then press them using your feet, which are, incidentally, the oldest wine making tools in the business.
As you’ll soon discover wine making is a tiring job. This is why we insist that you join us for a special feast at Bread & Wine, our famous farm restaurant, to finish off a day of Blessing the Harvest. If you’re looking for inspiration, or you’d like to get an idea of what you have to look forward to with your own wine, try some of our award winning wines. They are all guaranteed to quench the thirst you’ve no doubt worked up.
Over lunch, while you’re enjoying your food and relaxing with your wine, give the Blessing of the Harvest label design competition a whirl. Who knows it could be your label design that is selected to adorn the 2012 Blessing of the Harvest bottles.
Most people have such a blast that they come back a year later to partake in another Blessing of the Harvest. They also use this return visit to pick up the wine that they made the previous year, if they haven’t already collected it.
Date: 4th February 2012
