Over the past few months, Ken Forrester has hosted a series of tasting events to celebrate 25 fun years of producing wines from their vineyards in Stellenbosch. The final event, The Long Table Lunch, hosted on the lawns of the Ken Forrester manor house and beyond, is scheduled for the 16th November.
The day-long festivities begin with a special private performance from the band, Bottomless Coffee, on the lush lawns in front of the original manor house dating back to 1694. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy your favourite Ken Forrester wines in a walk-around tasting, allowing the good times to flow with great music, marvellous company and even better wines. From then on, guests will be seated at the long table and a seasonally-inspired family-style luncheon will be served with a range of Ken Forrester wines to enjoy all afternoon.
Throughout the 25-Year Celebrations Ken Forrester has hosted several tasting events to raise awareness and funding for Spark School in Lynedoch, an educational institution committed to providing top-class education to the children of the winelands, and a cause truly close to Ken’s heart.
“Out of these 25 events we are looking to create a bursary fund that will see underprivileged children getting a first class education that would lead to university”, says Ken Forrester. “The Long Table Lunch promises to be a truly memorable day, and all for a good cause too”, he continues.
The Long Table Lunch will kick off at 11h00 on Saturday 16th November until 16h00. Tickets cost R795 per person and include live music, the walk-around tasting, a family-style luncheon and Ken Forrester wines for the afternoon. Tickets are sadly limited and available on www.quicket.co.za, or at the Wine Lounge at KF Vineyards.
We invite you to join the team from Ken Forrester Wines for a superb summer day in the winelands as we raise a toast to the past 25 years and making a difference in the community.
