Year of the Bull
Seize the bull by the horns and head for the Overberg
The bull takes center stage for this year’s Bot River Spring Weekend festivities hosted on 1 and 2 September by the region’s fun-loving and fancy-free wineries.
Food, wine, music and entertainment – for kiddies too – will be a-plenty at the event taking place on the first official weekend of Spring. But, wait! There’s plenty more happening around the Overberg hamlet’s famous, bull-tide bash.
In true Italian style, food goes with wine! Snack boxes to purchase so grab a seat and take in the scenery while sipping away.
