Harvest Festival


This was a heartfelt salute to the arrival of Summer at the close of the MTN Branded Channel Conference, a glorious celebration of growth, new beginnings and boundless opportunity set at the majestic Backsberg Wine Estate. Themed as a celebratory Harvest Festival on the evening of the 31st of October, guests arrived through the vineyard on decorated tractor trailers to a traditional Maypole Celebration and Fire Display accompanied by a Brandy and Champagne Cocktail Bar and the gypsy-jazz sounds of Manouche set on the lawns of the Estate. Delighted guests were then ushered into the Barn where the Balkan sounds of the Kola Nova Movie Band filled the air.

A sumptuous, organic dinner feast was followed by an intimate performance by Arno Carstens that ensured guests were foot stomping and partying into the early hours of the next morning.
