Winelands Chocolate Festival

South Africa’s ‘first gourmet chocolate festival’ is being hosted indoors at Spier Wine Estate in the Stellenbosch Winelands on 5 to 7 June 2015. This 3-day chocolate affair will offer hourly demos at ‘The Chocolate Theatre’ by Master chocolatiers, top pastry chefs and fondant artists.

The market stalls at the Chocolate Emporium will offer both ‘Chocolate Decadence’ and ‘Chocolate as Superfood’ highlighting the two faces of contemporary chocolate.  

Daily activities include a high energy, chocolate-inspired fashion show, an art exhibition by local illustrators around the topic of ‘the chocolate wrapper’, chocolate sculptures by students at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, and surprise flash mobs courtesy of the university’s music students. It will be an interactive and entertaining weekend for lovers of good food, fine wines and quality chocolate.

"With Spier’s fireplaces ablaze and single origin hot chocolate at your fingertips, you can be assured of a vibrant and warm Winelands experience this winter," Di Burger.

Many restaurants and accommodation specials are being organised over the festival weekend. For more information contact Di Burger  di@chocolateSA.co.za
