FAIRTRADE CELEBRATION WITH ARNO CARSTENS AT BOSMAN LONG LUNCH
Bosman Family Vineyards promises a Celebration in Fairtrade set to the mellow acoustic performances by leading SA performer Arno Carstens at their Long Lunch during the annual Wellington Harvest Festival on 17 & 18 March 2012.
Kick off your working shoes and enjoy a leisurely, festive summer lunch set against the backdrop of elegant Cape Dutch buildings, spreading oaks and soaring mountains.
This 8th generation family winery is partnering with Fairtrade Label South Africa (www.FairtradeSA.org.za) and significant South African Fairtrade producers during this year's Wellington Harvest Festival in order to give South Africans a glimpse into the world of Fairtrade.
Fairtrade is a trading partnership, based on a progressive set of social and environmental criteria and seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by allocating part of the price for this cause.
Enjoy live performances by Arno Carstens daily between 12h00 and 15h00. Other entertainment includes the beautiful harmonies of the Bosman Farming Choir, a chance to play the ancient game of boules, guided cellar tours and an antique tractor display. A supervised kiddies area is also available.
The Bosman family invites you to a feast of country food to be enjoyed with their boutique-style wines in the captivating Bovlei Valley of Wellington. Enjoy delicious food to order from a menu prepared by Marc’s Restaurant and wines available per bottle or glass from Bosman Family Vineyards.
Sip away on ice cold rosé made from 33 grape varieties, the Mont Bay Sauvignon Blanc from our De Bos vineyards near Hermanus and the Sur Lie Chenin Blanc ‒ a gem made from our Lelienfontein Chenin Blanc grapes.
Bosman Family Vineyards will be joining hands with Pebbles, an NGO actively involved in the communities of the wine growing regions within the South African Wine industry. A percentage of the Long Lunch proceeds will go towards supporting this Cape winelands charity.
