VERGENOEGD SUMMER CONCERTS
Vergenoegd is already well-known for its award-winning wines, famous and quirky “Duck Parade”, coffee, olive and wine blending experiences and idyllic setting. The estate’s recently launched Market at Vergenoegd, which happens every Saturday from 10:00 to 16:00, is proving popular with locals and visitors alike.
Vergenoegd wine estate launches live at Vergenoegd Summer concerts
Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever summer music concert series, Live at Vergenoegd.
To be held every first Sunday of the month over the summer, live at Vergenoegd will feature some of South Africa’s best musicians including Goodluck, Ard Matthews, Monark, Jimmy Nevis, and Arno Carstens. Much like First Thursdays has taken over Cape Town, Live@Vergenoegd will make “First Sundays” the new thing for music lovers who want to get out of the city to enjoy a day with friends, family, delicious wine, bubbly and food – and of course great music – all set on the estate’s idyllic green lawns.
Ideally situated between Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Somerset West, just off the N2, Vergenoegd is the perfect Sunday concert venue no matter where you’re coming from. In just 30 minutes you can be parked, camped out on the grass, with a delicious glass of Runner Duck white or red in hand, ready for the concert to start. Small fold-up chairs and umbrellas are allowed in the designated area.
Live at Vergenoegd tickets are only R120 per adult and R50 for under 12’s (there will be a dedicated kids’ area to keep the little ones entertained). Vergenoegd wine, food and drinks will be on sale on the day from a great selection of traders (note: you may not bring your own food or drinks).
Or choose a Live at Vergenoegd VIP Package – and they’ll take care of everything for you. VIP packages are sold in pairs, but they’ll gladly accommodate uneven numbers. For R1100 per package you get:
• Two tickets to the concert;
• VIP parking and entrance;
• A separate area with an excellent view of the stage;
• Comfortable seating;
• Private toilets;
• Access to the main concert area;
• A picnic basket with two bottles of Vergenoegd Runner Duck red, white or rose, a selection of delicious food and a 750ml bottle of water;
• An exclusive Vergenoegd blending experience voucher (wine, coffee, tea or olive oil) to enjoy at your next visit to the estate.
VIP packages are limited per concert. Tickets and VIP packages are on sale online via Webtickets here. You can also book online and pay at any Pick ‘n Pay store or BP Express, or buy directly from selected Pick ‘n Pay stores (view the list of stores here).
Each Vergenoegd Summer concert begins at 12:00 and ends at 18:00. The music kicks off with an opening act at 14:30, with the headline act on stage at 16:00.
