Our aim at the South African Food & Wine Festival is to introduce wine lovers to the exceptional character and quality of South African wines. From the icons of South Africa such as Ken Forrester, to lesser known gems like Badenhorst, our selection represents the depth and breadth of South African wine and provides visitors a unique opportunity to sample and purchase wines not readily available in stores.
The wines for the festival are hand-picked by the Grayhaven family. While we choose a few fantastic “everyday wines” we know have a broad appeal, wine-lovers are sure to notice that the sustainability, creativity, and ‘true to terrior” philosophy of Grayhaven as well as our collective passion for quality and uniqueness shine through in the wines we select for you to taste.
As always, visitors will also have the opportunity to taste Grayhaven’s small batch and special release wines.
When not tending to their own vines and cellar, Virginia winemakers Deon and Max, son Azra and Grandpa Chuck travel to South Africa, visiting wineries and spending time with family and friends.
Founding partner/winemaker of Grayhaven Winery, Chuck treasures his trips to South Africa. The VIP treatment by fellow vintners in South Africa is always the highlight of his travels
