Lunch will be a deliciously long affair and you will find out all of the details below …
Bosman Family Vineyards promises a Celebration in Fairtrade at their Long Lunch during the annual Wellington Harvest Festival on 17 & 18 March 2012. Kick off your working shoes and enjoy a leisurely, festive summer lunch set against the backdrop of elegant Cape Dutch buildings, spreading oaks and soaring mountains.
This 8th generation family winery is partnering with Fairtrade Label South Africa and significant South African Fairtrade producers during this year’s Wellington Harvest Festival in order to give South Africans a glimpse into the world of Fairtrade.
Fairtrade is a trading partnership, based on a progressive set of social and environmental criteria and seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by allocating part of the price for this cause.
The Bosman family invites you to a feast of country food paired with their boutique-style wines in the captivating Bovlei Valley of Wellington. Savour the slow beat of ambient live music from various local entertainers including the Bosman Farming Choir, play the ancient game of boules, take a guided cellar tour, look at an antique tractor display, or watch the kids playing in the supervised kiddies area.
Sip away on ice cold rosé made from 33 grape varieties, the Mont Bay Sauvignon Blanc from our De Bos vineyards near Hermanus, the Sur Lie Chenin Blanc ‒ a gem made from our Lelienfontein Chenin Blanc grapes ‒ and enjoy delicious food prepared by Marc’s Restaurant and other local delicatessens.
Bosman Family Vineyards will be joining hands with Pebbles, an NGO actively involved in the communities of the wine growing regions within the South African Wine industry. A percentage of the Long Lunch proceeds will go towards supporting this Cape winelands charity.
