Welcome to our world of wine! Wine Festivals are an experience for all who love fabulous wine accompanied by great food. The Hermanus Wine and Food Fair has all the above and located in the beautiful Hemel en Aarde Village, Hermanus. Two days of indulgence offering a wide array of world-class premium wine and an assortment of fresh, local culinary creations.


The Wine Village is once again proud to present the Hermanus Wine and Food Festival, one of South Africa’s Top 10 Wine Festivals. This is a celebration of 16 years of great wines of the Elgin to Elim area. A true country festival, you will experience an impressive line up of wines that have garnered awards from around the globe.



We have seen the Walker Bay region grow from six producers in 1998 to more than 70 producers in 2013, and still growing. We have sent wine to every continent on earth, even to Antarctica. We offer more than 1600 labels of South African wines and daily present at least six wines for tasting.



The Hermanus Wine and Food Festival at the Wine Village is a gateway for visitors into the award winning wines of the Overberg. The Overberg wine region produces some of the most sought after wines in the country and you are invited to browse through the wine show, appreciate, delight in and sense the fruit of the vines, and discover your own favourites.



All the wines will be available for purchase at cellar door prices. This is a unique opportunity to extend your wine collection.



Experience the wonderful world of our local chefs, cooks and yummy makers in the food court.  Specialities of our region, from lip smacking snacks to gourmet meals on the go, a delectable journey in the presence of great music, friends and family.



The winemakers, producers and chefs have become our friends and are part of our wine family – come and meet them, taste their magnificent products.



The Hermanus Wine and Food Festival promises to be a vino-experience where you will meet new friends, discover new wines and find that whales are not the only reason for people visiting Hermanus.


As always, children are welcome and we have a special activity centre for them to play and be entertained while you explore the offerings on show.
