The Stanford Cheese and Wine Festival is a collaboration of hearts and minds, in a celebration of local food, world-class wines, and artisan cheesemaking. The inaugural festival was held at Walker Bay Estate & Birkenhead Brewery earlier this month and was a major success. Outselling our predicted webticket numbers on door sales by double.

With a melting pot of local suppliers showcasing their wares and set at the beautiful Walker Bay Estate, guests feasted on some of South Africa’s award-winning cheese and wines from the area.

For a small entrance fee via with snapscan and yoco payment points available at the food, cheese and wine stall guests were able to fill their complementary glass to sip and savour the top Overberg wines. Not only that, but load gift bag with a range of mouth-watering artisan fare for a true countryside farm to fork experience.

The day was designed for both friend and family connections and a host of festivities which include toe-tapping to tunes from local musicians and DJ’s, where guests picked their spot on expanse of rolling lawns to settle down with their selection of food, while the kids enjoyed a variety of activities and outdoor play. Guests could even take a seat at the newly revamped, airy Walker Bay Restaurant for a sit-down dining experience. The choices were endless.
