Ommiberg and other March events

Ommiberg Fest

Party around the Rock

This weekend sees the Ommiberg Round the Rock Festival happening in Paarl. It’s Pick n Pay Argus Cycle Tour weekend and so there are going to be loads of visitors driving around the Mother City and surrounds and so we are looking forward to multitudes of wide-eyed, eager tourists arriving at the Laborie Lazy Days Market.

Laborie, Paarl

A good place to chill

Of course Laborie Wine Estate is a participating estate and apart from all the other activities they have planned, our market times have been extended for Saturday from 09h00 – 17h00. More time to sell more beer, spirits & liqueurs by educating people and opening their minds to some of the beautiful flavours and textures available. Why drink it just because your daddy did?

Oyster and Champagne Fest 2011

Oyster Champagne 2011

The 5th annual event!

It’s that time of the year again! Bloemendal Wine Estates Oyster and Champagne Festival 2011 will be the 5th annual event where 1000’s of oysters are washed down with litres and litres of champagne!

Last year some 3500 people attended the 2 day festival and we had an awesome time at our own stand where we offered tastings and sales of The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey collection.

A little whiskey with that?

This year is going to be slightly different in that our stand will be offering a wider array of top quality products not only from around the world, but also lots of South African product.

We will have our full beer & spirit range that we present at markets, as well as some awesome premium products that every discerning drinker should have in their booze cabinet as an alternative to the plonk that we are so used to. No names mentioned of course! Continue reading

Little Known Blues Festival

World Focus team

The Trader Trio

Having been a part of the South African music scene for many years I really enjoy attending events that promote our many talented musicians from the Cape. Now we’re out there selling awesome beers & spirits which makes for an even more relaxing atmosphere in some really great settings.

This weekend (Saturday 15 January) we’ll be a part of the Little Known Blues Festival being launched at Bloemendal Wine Estate in the Durbanville hills, and we’ll not only be whetting your whistle, but hopefully also providing a bit more of an education as to what makes a great beer stand above the rest!

International beers & gifts

Rockstar ladies

Ladies join the fun! Gents... be there!

We are very excited to have been invited to create a small international beer garden from today until Sunday at Eden on the Bay. Their market, that usually runs on Sundays, has become very popular and we had a great time there this past Sunday.

From today we will have a whole range of beautiful beers, as well as a number of other spirits that we will be offering as Christmas gifting – after all it is the season to be joyful!

I do also have to mention that on Saturday there will be a very exciting event! Eden on the Bay is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most bikini clad ladies in a parade. I’m sure we’re going to sell a hell of a lot of beer as the gents will need to calm their nerves! Continue reading
