The annual bosman release celebration is here!

The annual Bosman Family Vineyards Release Celebration is set for 15 and 16 November this year.

This understated and relaxed country event takes place on the eighth-generation Bosman family estate, Lelienfontein in Wellington. It marks the annual release of new vintages from their premium Fairtrade De Bos Handpicked Vineyards and signatureBosman Family Vineyards wines. Exclusive releases for Bosman Family Wine Club Members will also be launched on the day and will include a Malbec and South Africa’s first ever Nero d’Avola – a red grape variety originally from Sicily.

The 250-year-old cellar will be transformed into a tasting journey of refined wines, with entertaining and informative wine theatre sessions by winemaker Corlea Fourie. A display of the fascinating but little-known process of vine grafting, a skill that has been practised since 1888 at Lelienfontein, will be given by the family vine nursery, Lelienfontein Vine Growers.

A festive food market will be set up under ancient oak trees on the estate’s verdant lawns. A variety of food options, perfectly complimented by the estate wines, will tantalize your taste buds. Live music is sure to add to the jovial atmosphere. 

Trained crèche staff will look after the entertainment of smaller children in order to give parents time to relax and enjoy the celebrations. A jumping castle and colouring activities will keep the little ones busy whilst Teens can engage in a friendly game of Touch Rugby, Cricket or Paintball fun! A special kids snack station will also be available with delicious treats such as Hotdogs, Slushpuppies and Ice Cream.

The day begins at 11h00 and ends at 16h00. The tasting journey is open from 12h00 to 15h00 in the cellar.  The wine maker theatre sessions can be booked on a first come first serve basis during 12h00 to 15h00.
