Come and join Marianne Wine Estate for a real insight of the most exciting time of the year for us: Harvest!
When joining the Marianne Harvest Experience, you will get to enjoy a half a day, a full day or a 2 days experience with the staff & team in the vineyard as well as in the cellar where the beautiful Marianne wines are created.
On the half day experience, you will be welcomed at the farm just before dawn as harvest start when the sun has barely risen. Despite the early morning, you are guaranteed a lot of fun. Being entirely part of the Marianne harvest team, and cutting the cluster row by row under guidance of the beloved viticulturist Ernest is an unforgettable experience. Once the job is done, a well- deserved breakfast will be waiting for you at the Tasting Room.
The experience then continues in the cellar where you will be selecting the healthiest grapes that will end up in our fermentation tanks. Finally, you will then all sit down in a communal table to enjoy a well-deserved South African braai.
The full-day experience also includes another session in the cellar where you will monitor the fermentation process which includes a barrel tasting as well as the famous Wine & Biltong pairing served on the panoramic desk at Marianne.
