If you’re a proud producer of Pinotage and especially if you’re into Sparkling, MCC, Sweet, White and Rose versions of our “national” grape, we’re keen to invite you to sign up for this annual event which celebrates Pinotage in all it’s guises!
It takes place on Saturday, 22 April and Sunday, 23 April 2017 at the annual Pinotage & Biltong Festival at L’Avenir Wine Estate just outside Stellenbosch from 11h00-17h00.
A wide range of biltong products will be paired with specific wines from some of South Africa’s top Pinotage producers for each tasting. Guests can taste and buy some of the best red Pinotages or have fun with alternatives including rosé’s, bubblies, blends and even a white Pinotage!
The event is family-friendly with live music, food trucks, light meals and casual seating under the trees next to the dam or on the lawns in front of the cellar. The charity beneficiary is Anna Foundation who will be present to entertain the kids and raise funds for their many worthy projects. Visit www.annafoundation.com for more info.
On 14 and 15 October 2017 it’s the turn of Gauteng fans when the festival will be held at the Leriba Hotel in Centurion, Gauteng as part of the official Pinotage Day celebrations, presented by the Pinotage Association.
Tickets @ R200 pp includes a branded crystal wine glass, a biltong cup and a pairing card for the Free Pinotage and Biltong tastings. Tickets at www.plankton.mobi. or www.computicket.co.za from 1 March 2017.
