This idyllic open-air wine festival takes place on the banks of the Breede River at the Goudmyn Farm between Robertson and Bonnievale in the Western Cape, South Africa
Just imagine a setting with the river flowing by, vineyards all around, beautiful hills and shading poplar trees. Add to that live music, plenty of wines to taste, picnics and other local produce – and you’ve got yourself a spring festival not to be missed! Local wineries and food producers do their best to out-do each other- all for the benefit of the visiting public!
As this is a weekend involving a heady mix of work and wine my interns and I decided not to miss it. We spent a couple of days capturing the festival. 19-21 October 2012 was a wet weekend and it rained almost constantly. However, professionals have to take it in their stride and I was very proud of my interns as they worked their way around the festival photographing the many delicious foodstuff and interesting people visiting the stalls.
