If you're a resident or even an annual visitor to Gansbaai, you’ve probably noticed a tortoise or two crossing the road...
Are you too busy to be bothered with shaving your beard? Do your friends refer to you as Gandalf or the Viking? Then we’ve got the event just for you! Join the Botrivier Winemakers who are too busy harvesting the sweet fruits of nature to shave and see who will be crowned the title of “Best Beard in the Land” at the annual Barrels and Beards Harvest Celebration 2017!
