Take two of South Africa’s iconic products, mix in some live music and gourmet eats, place it in the scenic environment of a Boland wine farm – and you end up with the annual Pinotage and Biltong Festival. It takes place for the fourth time this year on Saturday, 14 and Sunday, 15 April at Perdeberg Cellar from 11h00-17h00.
Eighteen wineries offer nearly 50 Pinotage’s for tasting and for sale, some of which are paired with specific biltong flavours by Afrifoods & Butcher, chosen to highlight the best qualities of both. The wines range from traditional red Pinotage right up to Rosé’s, sparkling wine, MCC, blends and even a white Pinotage!
Food trucks, an Oyster & MCC bar, Perdeberg’s own craft beer range, a kiddies play area and music by the popular Guy Feldman and his band, offer the perfect day out for the whole family in the Winelands.
Come dressed up in your purple and white outfits, shine on social media and win great prizes for the funkiest outfits! Use #pinobiltongfest to share.
