  • Mushroom Forage


    Date: 15, 16, 30  June and 1 July

    Cost: R695 per person Note: Tickets are limited to 40 per day. No group bookings allowed due to the intimate nature of this event.

    It's nearly mushroom time! Soon, mushroom foragers will head into the forest in search of delicious delicacies that only pop out for a short time every year. Our popular Mushroom Forage will open up the mesmerising world of fungi and teach you how to identify, forage and clean your very own hand-picked mushrooms.

    Our Mushroom Forage was awarded “Highly Commended” in the Best Wine Event category in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Challenge 2017. It is a phenomenal achievement to be recognized amongst top international wineries so you can be sure you’ll enjoy a high calibre, memorable experience!


    These fun(gi) excursions have run annually over a number of years and become hugely popular due to the magical experience as well as the hosts themselves - Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary “The Mushroom Fundi” Goldman. Both are experienced foragers and talented educators, who lead these ‘silent hunts’ along with the family’s inimitable Jack Russells.

    The day will begin with an enlightening workshop on mushroom identification in the farm’s vat cellar, followed by a short walk to the mushroom hunt in Delheim’s lush pine forest. Foragers will then head for the estate’s Garden Restaurant where Chef Bruce von Pressentin lays on a three-course meal that showcases these flavoursome marvels.

    This unique gourmet food and wine experience is for adults only and costs R695 per person. It includes an informative workshop, mushroom hunt, a tantalising mushroom-themed food and wine experience and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy at home. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and a warm jacket and should bring their own pocket knife and baskets for the hunt. The events will still take place even if it rains and all the fun starts at 09:30 until 14:30 but book off the rest of your day to make the most of the beautiful, serene surroundings.

    Warning: As fun and rewarding as foraging for mushrooms is, always practice caution as there are many varieties that are not safe to eat. We suggest taking photos of edible varieties to easily identify and ensuring that they are cooked as few mushrooms are safe to consume raw.

    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



    Dates: 25 Jun | 2, 9 Jul, 16, 23 and 30 Jul | 6, 9, 13, 20 and 27 Aug
    Cost: R230 per person
    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 live, soulful music from local bands that will keep your 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 and dessert from Delheim’s restaurant menu at an additional cost.

  • Harvest Festival

    Date: 28 & 29 January 2017
    Cost: R100 per adult / R80 for children under 12 years
    Bookings: Tickets are available for purchase at Computicket or directly on the farm.
    Your ticket includes entry to the event, a welcome drink, mosbolletjie, access to grape stomping and live music entertainment. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
    Remember to pack a hat, blanket and sunscreen.


    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.
