5-7 May 2006. The sister towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West in the heart of the Swartland district north of Cape Town once again play host to the annual olive festival, which is fast becoming a highlight of the South African culinary year. The programme includes olive grove tours, olive and olive oil tastings, wine cellar tours and wine tastings, cheese tastings, a local farmers market, art exhibitions and musical performances.
