This is the ideal family weekend break-away to banish the winter blues. The 2014 Breedekloof Soetes & Soup Festival is now in its sixth year, offering visitors a weekend filled with delicious homemade soups, winter-inspired wines and dessert wines, as well as family-friendly activities from live music to cupcake and wine pairings. Wines from Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini and Breede River will be showcased and will offer festival goers a great opportunity to stock up at discounted prices. The festival takes place from 18 to 19 July 2014. A R70 festival pass can be bought at the first wine farm you visit, which entitles you to complimentary homemade country soup.
