Heading into the famous Western Cape Winelands means you will send your taste buds into frenzy with world-class… chocolate.

Yes, the Winelands may be renowned for some of the best wine in the world, but chocolate pairs perfectly fermented grapes.

Lourensford Wine Estate provides you the opportunity to enjoy a day of utter indulgence with the annual Winelands Chocolate Festival.

The event will feature different chocolate-focused events and exhibitions – put on by master chocolatiers as well as top pastry chefs in South Africa.
The festival is scheduled to take place from 25-26 July 2015, and is suitable for the entire family.

Some of the highlights at the event include the Afternoon Tea on Saturday afternoon, starting at 15:00 – where chocolate and bubbly combine in the company of the chocolatiers and pastry chefs.

The Wild Chocolate Affair is a dinner at the Millhouse Kitchen on the Saturday evening, where bookings are essential and a special menu, created by Bjorn Guido, will surprise and delight.

The Winelands Chocolate Theatre offers the chance to enjoy special demoes, where you will get professional tips and recipes to help you wow your own guests at your next dinner party. Bookings are also essential for this event.

Lourensford Wine Estate is situated in Somerset West and forms part of beautiful Stellenbosch Wine Route – so why not make a weekend out of it and explore some of the magnificent estates in the area too.
