The Steam Train Wine Festival was a great success! Folks enjoyed the authentic steam train ride and the authentic food and wine experience  from leading producers, in-between, all in perfect weather!  The festival began by guests arriving at the Johannesburg Station between 8:00 and 8:30 am. They then boarded the train and set off, with the whistle of the steam train, to the Magaliesburg Station, where the artisanal food and wine festival was held.

Live music, fine wine and leading artisanal food producers awaited guests as they pulled into the Magaliesburg Station.  Boucheron Wines had arranged for actual farm representatives, who worked on the farms, to be there, adding a touch of authenticity to the tasting experience. Guests received a complementary 2-bottle wine pack of the De Redley White Merlot 2015 and the Boucheron Pinotage 2012 to encourage them to buy wine online from

Food produce included an interesting array of goods, from luxury, savoury jams to the best grass-fed beef in South Africa, complements of Braeside Butchery.  Gourmet bunny-chows made for an authentic, spicy, South African dining experience, only surpassed by the extreme chilli-sauce of Chilliheads!

The children were in their element! A real “choo-choo” train, jumping castles and a mechanical bull ride – utilized by brave adults too! The event catered for the whole a family. 

Boucheron Wines would like to thank everyone for such a delightful event and urges guests to join us once again for another Steam Train Wine festival before the end of the year. Dates will be advised shortly. Please add yourself to our email list if you haven't already for updates.
