Eighteen of SA’s top Pinotage producers have committed to show their wines at this year’s Pinotage and Biltong Festival at Leriba Hotel in Centurion on 13 and 14 October. One wine from each winery is paired with a biltong flavour, but most of these producers also have additional Pinotage’s which will be offered for tasting and for sale directly from their stands.
The wineries are: Bellevue Wine Estate, Beyerskloof, De Krans, Ernst Gouws & Co, Flagstone Wines, Grande Provence, Hill & Dale, Jakkalsvlei, Koelenhof, Mellasat Vineyards, Mount Vernon, Neethlingshof, Perdeberg Cellar, Simonsvlei Winery, Taillard Wines, Van Loveren Family Vineyards Whalehaven and Wellington Wines.
The festival concept offers visitors a Pinotage & Biltong Pairing Card & Tasting Map which takes participants on a fun “festival route” to discover new Pinotage styles paired with curated biltong and droë wors flavours, courtesy of Pretoria-based Billa B & Co Biltong Deli. Festival visitors all dress in purple and white and Leriba Hotel will offer eats at the festival venue as well as in their restaurants on site.
