Welcome summer in style with one of the chicest events of the season: Steenberg Garden Party. Each year, the event brings a little bit of the Constantia Wine Route right to the people of Joburg in an elegant and relaxed celebration of all things food and wine.

Steenberg Garden Party takes place on Saturday, 29 September, The Kitchen at L’antico Giardino in Lanseria and focuses on fine wines, rejuvenation, and living the Steenberg life. Steenberg Vineyards was the Cape’s first registered farm, established in 1682, and is all about tranquillity – which translates perfectly to the Garden Party. Its winery is already known for producing some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc and Méthode Cap Classique wines in the country, and this is the perfect opportunity for Joburgers to taste the delicious vintages without having to take one step outside their city.

While the wines take centre stage, the event itself offers so much more to its guests than simply sipping on vino. You can wander through the outstretched gardens, but chances are you’ll want to spend most of your time just relaxing and tucking into the culinary delights on offer at the harvest table, which promises to be heavily laden with delicious treats.

And with the food included in the ticket price, there’s no excuse not to indulge. Coupled with the laid-back music that’ll be playing throughout the day, and the variety of comfortable seating options that’ll be available, expect an intensely luxurious day in the glorious Joburg sun. What are you waiting for, buy your ticket now through Quicket.
