Day2 - Leg2 - Calitzdorp - Off to Wine festival

This is the daily blog from, in particular a short series on the Calitzdorp Port and Wine festival we attended during June 2011.

More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.

After breakfast, where we found out how to get to the Port and Wine festival, we headed down to the old railway station where they were holding the event. As we arrived there we saw a Dad and Son comination having a lot of fun on some Quads. We never met them but they may well be local wine farmers as Quads are always a great means of transport around a farm.

On arrival we found what looked like a flea market and the main station area had been turned into a wine tasting hall. There was a band playing and lots of wonderful food and wine smells. Looks like it was gonna be a lovely day.
