On Wednesday, 27 March 2013, Rooiberg Winery in the picturesque Breede River Valley officially launched its new landmark – THE BIGGEST CHAIR IN AFRICA. Highly acclaimed for its outstanding wines, Rooiberg Winery is now also an unmissable tourist attraction on the R60 between Worcester and Robertson.
The new landmark was launched together with the RED CHAIR wine range. Make sure you try the Sauvignon Blanc De Lite, a low alcohol Sauvignon Blanc; and Bean There Pinotage, a “coffee” Pinotage.
Why a chair?
It’s no surprise a giant red chair would become a well-known landmark for tourists travelling along the R60. A quick google for “biggest chairs in the world” brings up a variety of chairs from the United States, Spain, Italy, Canada, and more.
Marianne Lochner, spokesperson for Rooiberg Winery explains that a chair is a symbol that invites visitors to “come and have a seat”. Here you can rest, relax, and spend time enjoying authentic South African hospitality. So pop in for a wine tasting, have lunch at the Bodega de Vinho restaurant, and take home some freshly baked goods from the bakery.
