The 13th annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival will take place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2013 in the picturesque Riebeek Valley celebrating the award winning olive oils and wines from the Swartland region.
The largest of its kind in Southern Africa, the Festival is hosted by the beautiful twin hamlets of Riebeek West and Riebeek Kasteel and falls on the first weekend of May each year. The festival highlights the region’s prosperous olive industry and is also an opportunity for visitors to sample the neighbouring wine farms.
The Riebeek Valley has established itself as the primary olive oil and olive producing region in South Africa. Riebeek Kasteel not only boasts four of the top olive producers in the country, it is also home to two Italian trained olive oil graders. The wines from the Swartland are also of an extraordinary quality and very much in demand winning prestigious local and international awards.
