Started in 2000, the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival is one of the most popular lifestyle festivals in the Western Cape. With 5 participating venues, it is also the biggest olive festival in the country.
If you are an olive enthusiast, then this is the only place to be. Award-winning olive oils, olives, tapenades and beauty products are just a few of the olive products available in the valley. Do not leave town without visiting the Kloovenburg Wine and Olive Estate and the Olive Boutique for olives galore.
Create your own Olive Festival experience by booking one or more of our master classes in olive oil tasting, wine tastings, wine blendings and lots more.
No lifestyle festival is complete without a selection of good wine and our wineries and local cellars will not disappoint. Tantalise your taste buds with unique and sought after wines from the Swartland terroir. Visit Allesverloren, Meerhof Winery, The Riebeek Valley Wine Co and Kloovenburg Wine and Olive Estate for delicious wines - to enjoy on the day or an array of wines to take home with you.
Enjoy an intimate long table experience with one of your favourite winemakers/producers where Riebeek Valley ‘farm to table’ deliciousness will be paired with exceptional local wines.
To say that the Riebeek Valley is known for its culinary flair is an understatement. Spoilt for choice, we have a variety of award winning restaurants. Be sure to book to avoid disappointment.
In true hospitable Swartland style, visitors will be welcomed and entertained at all participating wineries and venues. Each venue has a different flavour and selection of products and also offers a great festival vibe with lots to do, see, eat and experience. See you there!
