Soon, Bot River winemakers will return to the tribe where Gandalf, Lincoln, Chuck Norris, Castro and their bearded ilk hold sway. And as has become the most memorable fashion, they’ll ignite a party like no other. Now in its 7th year, Barrels & Beards has become an institution to celebrate the new harvest of Bot River wine on its hallowed journey from the ocean-cooled vineyards of this magnificent valley to the wine-lover’s glass
Come Saturday, April 22 and those famed lyrics of that eponymous 1960s musical will be recalled once more: “She asks me why. I’m just a hairy guy; I’m hairy noon and night…” Because, that’s the date for the hip and hirsute
Barrels & Beards party – to which everyone is invited. This year, Barrels & Beards again welcomes lovers of all things fun and delicious to a sumptuous dinner spread and to taste wines right from the latest vintage straight from the barrel during the festivity hosted once more on the hillside grounds of Barton Vineyards.
Producers taking part in the 2017 Barrels & Beards celebration are Anysbos, Barton Vineyards, Beaumont Family Wines, Gabriëlskloof, Genevieve MCC, Goedvertrouw Wine Estate, Luddite Wines, Maremmana Estate, Momento, Paardenkloof Estate, Rivendell Estate, Wildekrans Boutique Wine Estate and Villion Family Wines.
Bot River is not just a one night stand dorpie so why not make a weekend of it and come on over on Friday already to join us locals for a few cold ones on the stoep
at the Hotel.
The 2017 Bot River Barrels & Beards showcase will take place on Saturday, 22 April 2017 at 5pm at BARTON VINEYARDS.
