taste the helderberg

What a pleasure to have this right on our doorstep here at Penny Lane Lodge! Now in its 7th year, ‘Taste the Helderberg’ is a fabulous evening during which you’re always in for a real treat!

Specially prepared dishes from gourmet winery restaurants in the Helderberg area will be available to taste alongside some top wines from some of our best local wine estates. The wine show is hosted by our local NH Lord Charles Hotel on the evening of Saturday 11 July.

The Helderberg area is a booming sub-route of the Stellenbosch Wine Route and stretches from Somerset West to Stellenbosch and Sir Lowry’s Pass Village. Some of the best of local producers will be represented at this exclusive tasting experience including Avontuur, Hidden Valley, Ken Forrester Wines, Longridge, Lyngrove, Peter Falke, Vergenoegd and Waterkloof Estate.

During and after the wine-tasting, guests can relax in comfortable couches in chill areas or make use of the Lord Charles’s restaurant for dinner. But beware, we are told that prior bookings at the restaurant must be made well in advance!

The doors will be open from 17:00 to 21:00, although guests are encouraged to come early to make the most of the evening.

The tickets are R80 per person including a branded wine glass. Tickets will be available online or at the door on the day. For more information call 021 886 4310 or visit
