    Delheim’s annual Start of Harvest Festival is back! After a devastating fire on the Simonsberg Mountain put a cork in the event for 2016, it has been re-kindled with vigour and exciting changes. Now is the time book out the family calendar for January 28 and 29, when Delheim Start of Harvest Festival returns.

    The event at the celebrated Stellenbosch wine farm is among the first to usher in the grape-picking season’s hustle-and-bustle. This is the time that farms across the winelands prepare to bring in the fruit; a time of joy after year-long toil and tending the vines. “The fire that swept through this area forced us to cancel the event last year, but we’re back – better and stronger,” says Delheim Destination Manager Charlotte Terblanche. “In fact, our regulars have been chomping at the bit so if you’re planning to come, best book early.”

    Once again, the ever-popular grape stomping is back. It is an ancient tradition across the world that’s symbolic of the fellowship of wine and guaranteed to ignite the fun. There will be live music and lawn games, too.

    This time however, brave participants and eager observers will light up with enthusiasm for Delheim’s new barrel-rolling races – a laugh-a-minute and certainly not as easy as you might think.

    As for the food, the harvest table format has been revamped. The feast is still on, but there will be even greater diversity and the opportunity to taste the eminent suitability of Delheim wines with food. Vegetarian options will be provided as well as a stand for dessert and an ice-cream truck.

    With Germany being the birth country of Delheim patriarch and industry icon ‘Spatz’ Sperling, you can look forward to a few tasty specialities from this part of the world like tasty Bratwurst. Every food offering will be sold with the ideal Delheim wine. Think Bratwurst with a blue-blood Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend, or decadent sweets with a refreshing glass of Delheim’s famed rosé - SA’s first in the style made with Pinotage grapes.


  • Mushroom Forage

    Date: TBC

    Cost: TBC

    Limited tickets per day / No group bookings allowed due to the intimate nature of this event

    Your ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a bottle of Delheim wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification by fundi Gary Goldman; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine with every course.

    All you need to bring is a sharp pair of eyes, comfortable walking shoes and a warm jacket!


    Delheim offers avid mushroom foragers two exceptional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    Please note: Although these events take place at the time of year when there is the best chance of finding wild mushrooms and the ‘moon is right’, Delheim cannot guarantee that you will find any on the day.

  • Jazz and Cheese Fondues

    Date: TBC
    Cost: TBC
    Booking essential: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 021 888 4607

    Your ticket includes a warming glass of glühwein on arrival, a shared cheese fondue and soulful, live music that will keep the feet tapping from 12h30 until 15h30.


    We ward off the winter blues with Jazz and Cheese Fondue indulgences in our downstairs cellar. This cosy cellar, snug with low ceilings and rustic candlelit tables, sets the scene for families and friends to huddle around fondue pots: ease into a laid-back Sunday afternoon, enriched with lingering aromas of pungent melting cheese, quality wines and jazzy tunes.

    Delheim swirls their cheese fondue to an authentic Swiss recipe that oozes deliciousness and combines emmental, gruyere and white wine for a hearty ‘blast from the past’. The fondue makes its way to your table with oven fresh baguette dippers and vegetable crudités. Guests can also order starters from Delheim’s restaurant menu at an additional cost.
