Run the Vines #10 Windmeul
Sat 3 Sep 2022, 08:00 @ Paarl, Western Cape

Onsite Events

After a two year rest the Widmeul Cellar Waterblommetjie Festival is back.

The waterblommetjie is one of South Africa's most famous edible plants. It has a long history of use by the indigenous Khoikhoi, both medicinally and as a nutritious food. The name means "little water flower" and though it's an edible flower, it's not the sort that is used to garnish a salad.

This one is hardy enough to be used in the most proud of South African stews, the waterblommetjiebredie.

Join us on the 3rd of September at Windmeul for a fun day out with the whole family. With live music, food stalls (farmers market), wine and of course the waterblommetjie potjiekos competition.
