Swap your lazy Sunday night for an evening of blood-pumping and hip-swinging tunes with local music icon Valiant Swart at Neethlingshof’s very first Malbec Festival on November 11.
Known for his Afrikaans rock ‘n roll hits and cowboy-like charm, Valiant is sure to captivate the audience every moment he’s on stage. Having compiled more than 100 original songs and 14 albums over the past 20 years, Valiant is well known as a top-class entertainer.
Make the most of the festival’s “unpretentious food, wine and artist” theme and start the night with a complimentary tasting of Malbec straight from the barrel. A festival pass also gets you a free glass of Neethlingshof Malbec 2011 and delicious bunny chow with a choice of curried mince, creamy chicken and mushrooms or stewed vegetables. Make sure you get there early for the best spot with a view of the stage.
Blankets and chairs will be available for hire, but guests are welcome to bring their own. Neethlingshof wines, soft drinks and hot beverages will be on sale. For more information contact Ilana Strydom on 021 883 8988 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
