This weekend is the Autumn Wine Festival of Fijn Wyn in Pretoria.

It starts on Friday 27 April at  Shokran Events Venue (plot 99 Tierpoort) and runs until Saturday 28 April Gates open at 10h00. Tickets cost R160 and there will be a big selection of wine to taste and buy.

Jorika Visser of Raka Wine is making a special trip to the capital to bring you the latest and greatest from Raka, where it is now truly autumn. The vines have turned yellow, and the leaves are softly fluttering to the ground on the breeze.

The nights and early mornings are colder and the wind has changed to mostly north - west. Only the rain is reluctant to bless the earth with much needed showers, but we are confident that rain will come in May, when our rain season starts.

Please visit the Raka stand at Fijn Wyn and taste the delightful wine from our fertile valley.
