Hope to see you at the first Sportsmans Warehouse event in this new 2021 series!


First event of 2021 was:


Fantail Trail Run @ Morgenhof Wine Estate

Presented by Sportsmans Warehouse

Historically a wine estate since 1692, they can trace the rich winemaking history of the estate back to the original French Huguenots. The best way to describe the well-known Fantail wines from this historic estate would be by the French: “vin de soif and vin des copains”. Translated as satisfying wines to be enjoyed with friends. The peacocks can be seen roaming the estate and their majestic tail plumage emulates the extravagance of flavour found in a bottle of Fantail. We will be running singletrack built by Dirtopia especially for this event on the slopes above the celaar with views of Stellenbosch!
