Mushroom and port, chicken curry, mexican meatball, waterblommetjie or biltong and blue cheese – these are just a few of the soups being served at this year’s Breedekloof Soetes & Soup festival, taking place on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July.
This exciting event, hosted at the various wineries in the Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini, and Breede River areas, will serve you complimentary cups of steaming homemade country soup accompanied by a glass of red or dessert wines. Soetes & Soup is a showcase of the Breedekloof’s finest wines and hearty homemade soups, once again proving why this valley is fast becoming known as “South Africa’s most generous wine route”.
What to expect:
The festival extends across the Breedekloof Wine Valley and each of the participating wineries will be showcasing their award-winning red and dessert wines as well as offering a variety of entertainment. Highlighting their generous country hospitality, they’ll present a complimentary cup of homemade country soup and some enticing pairings. Don’t miss the shiraz ice cream or the cupcake and wine pairing at Kirabo, the Chocolate soup and Port tasting at Bergsig, or the Ramkiekie Farmer’s Market at Mountain Ridge. Besides all the home-made country soups, there will also be a range of heartier fare such as comforting pancakes, burgers, roosterkoeke, vetkoeke and more. This year the festival is also including a range of Premium Wine Events, available by bookings only, with limited space.
