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?

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?
