Discover the delicious world of mushrooms at the beautiful Delheim Wine Estate as it opens its private forest for avid fungi foragers during its annual Wild Mushroom Hunts on 16 and 17 June, as well as 1 and 2 July.

These ex-cep-tional excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and seasoned field expert Gary Goldman, aka the Mushroom Fundi, and will see intimate groups honing their foraging feelers in search of these ‘wild wonders’. 

After spending a morning in the beautiful forest, the mushroom hunters will head back where they will head for the estate’s Garden Restaurant. Here a 3-course feast by Chef Bruce Von Pressentin, featuring mushrooms in all their finery will come out to delight the tastebuds.  There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat. The Delheim Wild Mushroom Hunts start at 10am in the Vat Cellar and tickets cost R650 per person. 

A ticket includes a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification over a cup of coffee and rusks; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-inspired lunch and a glass of Delheim wine. All you need to bring is a sharp pair of eyes, comfortable walking shoes and a warm jacket! Advance bookings are essential.
