March sees the returns of monthly favourites on our town’s calendar with Windmeul Kelder’s monthly Farmer’s Market taking place the first Saturday of the month and Painted Wolf Wines’ Wine Wednesday the last Wednesday of the month.
Paarl’s artists are opening their studio doors the first Saturday of the month to showcase their creative work and as we gently approach the change of season, the milder temperatures make it the perfect time for outdoor activities such as heading to our Paarl Adventure Trails for MTB, trail running and hiking fun as well as getting your swing on at Paarl Golf Club.
Head out to Paarl for magnificent meandering as we offer you super accommodation and gastronomic offerings and obviously exquisite wines!
WINDMEUL KELDER invites you to their monthly Farmers Market on Saturday, 6 March! This family-friendly event is held at the winery from 8am until 12pm on the first Saturday of every month. The market offers visitors a feast of produce and delicious deli treats, live music and award- winning wines. This is a great opportunity to enjoy a kid-friendly outing while soaking up country living at its best. No dogs allowed l Entry free of charge
