The Winelands Chocolate Festival at Blaauwklippen Wine Estate

With the festivities of Easter celebrations just over a week ago, and still hiding my remaining chocolate from myself, I received info on the second Winelands Chocolate Festival, which takes place at Blaauwklippen Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on 20th and 21st of August 2016.

After yesterday’s visit to the Getaway Show 2016 at Lourensford Estate, I’m super keen to venture out in to the beautiful countryside near Cape Town on a regular basis. And what better way to experience the Winelands than with chocolate and wine?

Yesterday I entered a competition with Las Paletas purely because the tickets came with free icecream ALL day… and I won! Free icecream is enough to put an event into the diary, so I’ve cleared my schedule for tomorrow and heading off to Lourensford Estate for a day out in the country with my 7 year old son. He won’t believe his luck when he’s allowed more than one icecream in a day 🙂

The line-up sounds pretty interesting, so if you’re thinking of heading out that way this weekend, here’s the info  (provided by KLPR)…
