Taste Responsibly

Frequently asked Questions

Tell me more about the festival

The Robertson Wine on the River takes place at the Goudmyn Farm on the banks of the Breede River.  45 wineries from Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson showcase more than 300 wines for you to taste in a central location.  Wine is also sold both for on-site or off-site consumption at cellar price, making it the ideal time to stock up on some favourites. Although the focus is on the tasting of wine, you will also be able to sample olives, cheeses, olive oils and other regional produce.

Will I be able to swim in the river?

Due to the safety risk, swimming is strictly forbidden.

Where can I buy tickets?

You can buy tickets online from WEBTICKETS, prior to the event - Please note the early bird prices applicable to all tickets booked before 30 September 2015.

Over the festival weekend, you can buy tickets at the festival gates. 

Can I bring my kids along?

Yes – it makes for a great family outing, but it is important to remember that it is a wine festival with the focus on wine-related activities. As requested we’ve lifted the age of kids entering for free to 18 years.  Activities then work on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Can I bring my pets?

No unfortunately not. Much as we believe your pet(s) to be adorable, pets will not be allowed at the festival site. The only exception is guide dogs.

I heard something about a shuttles service running from the towns?

On Saturday, a shuttle service will run between Bonnievale, Montagu and Robertson and the festival site and is FREE to all festival goers. Please refer to our detailed Shuttle Schedule for further information.

Is the festival wheelchair friendly?

Please note that the festival area has a rough terrain and as such is not disabled-friendly.  However with assistance from friends, some visitors will be able to guide themselves satisfactory.
