Helderberg Amazing Race

October 19, 2012

The Helderberg Amazing Race will be taking place on 20 & 21 October 2012, and will involve Wine Farms in Somerset West and Stellenbosch who are part of the Helderberg Wine Route.

Nearly 100 teams in this year’s fourth annual Helderberg Wine Route Amazing Race are set to experience the winelands in a totally different way.

Once again their skills will be tested to the utmost against a range of wacky tasks dreamed up by 25 wineries situated in this scenic part of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes.

Tasks range from the educational like wine pairings, a wine quiz, wine blending and identifying certain wine varietals; to the physical like strawberry harvesting, barrel rolling, rounding up ducks and horse-shoe throwing to name a few. Although perfect for a corporate or team-building exercise, a group of friends can have a lot of fun too competing informally against each other!

The entry fee is R1600 per team, which includes all the tastings and entertainment for the day, the prizes and the prize-giving dinner in the Grand Ballroom of the NH Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West. Profits raised will be donated to Operation Smile.

Let’s hope the unseasonable rain we have just now clears up for the competitors!
