This summer, welcome in the warmer weather with a day of laid-back wining and dining.
Three days of indulgence for oenophiles
The 11th annual Pinotage On Tap Festival took place in Joburg at the picturesque Val Bonne Country Estate on 29 August; the next instalment takes place in Durban’s much-loved rustic venue in Salt Rock, The Litchi Orchard, on 19 September. Sample the very best pino around (it’ll be on tap!),enjoy paired food and live music, then take a stroll on Salt Rock’s breathtaking beach, just a five-minute drive away.
If you really want to experience the best of the festival, catch the grand finale at Diemersfontein Wine & Country Estate in Wellington, just 70km from Cape Town, on 10 October (which, incidentally, is also International Pinotage Day).
If you attend any of these events you’ll be treated to a generous goodie bag on arrival, a sumptuous lunch – featuring an array of palate-pleasing bowl foods and desserts, each paired with the perfect Pinotage. Your day will be complemented by great live music from a lineup of top local acts: headlining bands include Majozi in Durban and Grassy Spark in Cape Town.
Be sure to try the multi-award-winning Original Coffee Chocolate Pinotage, tapped straight from the barrels; its smooth texture and rich flavour will have you hooked!
