Identifying different flavor notes in wine is a mark of refinement, like discerning the pedigree of a horse by its taste in jazz. Sip on singular vintages with this Groupon.
- $90 for general admission for six to the South African Wine Festival (a $180 value)
The eighth annual South African Food & Wine Festival takes place at Grayhaven Winery on Saturday, September 14, and Sunday, September 15, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ticketholders may choose one of those days to attend. Guests can bring along a blanket or lawn chair and kick back and relax, watching entertainers such as dancer Sduduzo Ka-Mbili, country musician Mirka, and blues-rock musician Tuelo Minah, who performs in English and Tswana. This Groupon does not include food or wine, but they are available to purchase separately.
With names like Voyager, Rendezvous, Trekker, and Sojourn, the wines at Grayhaven Winery LLC evoke a sense of getting away from it all. But their small-batch vintages aren't the only escape route from the everyday Grayhaven opens up. Visitors on estate tours will find Virginia-made goat cheese and baguettes in the tasting room, a child-friendly playground and nature trail, four resident horses, and three dogs with noses for fine wines. The vineyard also hosts three large events every year: the South African Food & Wine Festival, Blues in the Vineyard, and the Owens Creek Oyster Festival.
