Celebrate summer and make your way to De Krans Wine Cellar in Calitzdorp for their annual apricot picking, which takes place from 24 November until 8 December this year.
Visitors will be able to pick and sample deliciously sweet, juicy Bulida apricots at the farm, every day (except Sundays) from 8am until 4pm.
A cost of R4.30/kg will be charged for the apricots and visitors are welcome to bring their own containers. Alternatively containers can be purchased at De Krans at a nominal fee.
As part of their annual fundraising projects, the Vygieshof Home for the Aged will offer visitors an appetizing braai on 24 and 28 November, and then again on 1, 5 and 8 December at De Krans. To avoid disappointment, as these meals are extremely popular, visitors are urged to book beforehand.
Situated in the picturesque Little Karoo town of Calitzdorp, De Krans is home to some of South Africa’s award-winning ports.
Recent accolades include a 5-star rating for the De Krans The Last Cape Vintage Reserve Port 2010.
This 5-star rating follows in the footsteps of the De Krans Espresso awarded the RX South Africa Trophy for the Most Innovative Wine in 2012, at the 2012 Michelangelo International Wine Awards, as well as De Krans winning the South African Champion Port at this year’s SA Young Wine Show, reaffirming De Krans’ position as one of South Africa’s premier port producers.
Visitors to the farm are invited to sample these as well as the other ports and value-for-money wines within the range, especially the Pink Port which is the first of its kind to be launched in South Africa.
