Route 540 Wine festival Dullstroom 2016

A Mouth-watering Journey Around Dullstroom

The small country town of Dullstroom will be hosting its’ second exciting food and wine event. The Route 540 Wine Festival invites guests to both a Food and Wine Dinner pairing and a Route 540 Wine Tasting afternoon over the last weekend in September.

After the success of the first event last year, the 2017 Festival has prepared for two Dinner events and has also included the Bubble Breakfast Run a new paired Bubble/MCC or sparkling wine event. Echo Events have partnered up with eight restaurants and no less than 19 wineries and more than 60 different wines to bring you along this wonderful journey of food and wine.

The Friday evening Dinner event, themed Dullstroom Ghost Hunting Safari Dinner, begins at Charlie C’s for the first course of a five course meal, paired with wine from 5 wineries served at 5 different restaurants in Dullstroom. Participants will park their vehicles at the first venue and continue from venue to venue with the Ghost Mobile.  The Organisers and restaurants can unfortunately only accommodate a limited number of guests for this exclusive meander through Dullstroom and bookings will close once tickets are sold out. Get you tickets early, the Ghost Hunting experience is an event not to be missed!

On Saturday, the participating restaurants will host the 19 wine farms showcasing many different tasting notes to explore. Ticket holders for the Wine Tasting event will receive a tasting glass and a map of the route which will allow them to taste the wines from the various wine farms that are on display. To end the wonderful weekend, Sunday brings the first Bubble Breakfast Run. Choose a venue or Menu paired with a specific Bubble/MCC or Sparkling Wine and enjoy!
