With whales already in the bay, Hermanus is a wonderful getaway this time of year and the Food & Wine Festival makes it even better.
A true country festival, the event offers an impressive line up of wines that have garnered awards from around the globe.
From a wine perspective, the Walker Bay region has grow from six producers in 1998 to more than 70 producers in 2012, and is still growing. The region has sent wine to every continent on earth, even to Antarctica, and offers more than 1600 labels of South African wines.
The Hermanus Wine and Food Festival is hosted at the Wine Village - a gateway for visitors into the award winning wines of the Overberg. The Overberg wine region produces some of the most sought after wines in the country and you are invited to browse through the wine show, appreciate, delight in and sense the fruit of the vines, and discover your own favourites.
All the wines will be available for purchase at cellar door prices. This is a unique opportunity to extend your wine collection.

Need to Know
The best way to enjoy the Hermanus Wine & Food Fair is to book a night or two in the seaside resort town at a Portfolio Collection B&B or guest house. That way you can enjoy all the fun of the fair without needing to drive back to Cape Town on the day, and have time to view the whales and explore the town.
