A fine day out at the Fijnwyn Food and Wine Festival! Yay for #FijnwynBirthday, Fijnwyn’s 10th birthday!
A great selection of wine estates to explore, and a fab selection of food – deliciously decadent picnic boxes, gorgeous cheese platters, deli goodies, gourmet pizzas, braaibroodjies, ice cream and more!
We discovered some real gems from Vrede and Lust, Wildekrans, Rietvallei, Middelvlei, Boplaas, and more! Always a treat hanging out with fellow partners in wine – thanks Mike and Mon, it is always educational! 😉
And some wine loving friends, the relaxing atmosphere and live music into the mix and you have the perfect outing! If you couldn’t make it to Fijnwyn today – make sure you get tickets for Saturday via iTicketsSA! Read more on http://fijnwyn.co.za/, diarise the dates of future events coming up and don’t miss out!
Thanks for spoiling us Fijnwyn! We will be back – definitely one of the best wine events in Pretoria!
(from the website – updated 15 May 2018):
The Fijnwyn wine festival has been established as one of Pretoria’s favourite calender events for any wine lover. The idea of the festival was to bring the Cape to Gauteng.
Shokran is a unique events venue situated in a tranquil farm setting amid pecan nut and almond plantations only 12km from Woodlands Boulevard.
It is the ideal setting for families to enjoy a day where they will feast their senses on wine, food and music.
In 2018 we will have 4 festivals throughout the year so be sure to visit us for at least one of them. We have a variety of boutique wine estates which include Vrede & Lust, Louis 57, Beyerskloof and many more. Come and enjoy delicious food & wine pairing and spend some quality time with family & friends.
(from Fijnwyn website)
Shokran is a unique events venue situated in a magnificent, tranquil farm setting amidst pecan nut and almond plantations, 12km from the Woodlands Shopping Centre on the Eastern side of Pretoria (Garsfontein Road). It has an upmarket, rustic relaxed feel to it with a Moroccan inspired theme, which has been brought to life with personally selected and imported Moroccan Finishing and décor.
It consists of a beautiful thatched-roof hall, which has been fitted with imported Moroccan handcrafted finishing such as lights, doors & windows. It boosts a stunning fireplace and has large farm style “stoeps” surrounding it. Outside there are lush green lawns under beautiful indigenous trees. And the Moroccan grass umbrellas and mosaic tables adjacent to an almond tree plantation make it a truly magical setting. We have a beautiful tent with large Moroccan lights rounded off with soft white curtains and beautiful Moroccan tassels which you can use for your wedding ceremony or any outside event
Shokran can host between 20 and 150 guests and has been designed to accommodate a variety of events such as weddings, corporate events, special occasions like 50th and kiddies parties to name a few. Book an appointment and come and visit us to discuss and plan your function.
“Shokran” means Thank You in Arabic and we would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to help create unforgettable memories.
