The Cape Winelands region offers tourists and locals a collection of outstanding festivals throughout the year. The Paarl Pinotage and Biltong festival is no exception. Boasting the opportunity to celebrate South Africa with classic local delicacies with a high-class twist, there is something to please everyone’s palate.
Local is lekker, and what’s more South African than combining 2 of our most iconic products to bring out the best flavours in one another. The range of almost 50 wines goes from traditional red Pinotage right up to Rosés, sparkling wine, MCC, blends and even a white Pinotage from participating wineries all over the Western Cape, all of which are available for buying. It’s paired with Afrifoods Biltong and Butchery presenting an assortment of beef, venison, chicken and bacon biltong and droëwors.
Learn a few things about the rich history and imagination of the local delicacies from experts of the trade, for a day of letting loose in a classy way, while tasting the gourmet foods. Make it a family day by bringing the kiddies in for free with a play area just for them, while you relax to the music in the festival area that sets the joyful tone. You will soon understand the fun-loving nature of Cape Town natives shining through with upbeat energy.
Nothing says summertime like the opportunity – have a unique experience in the wide natural farmland decorated with colourful stalls and drinks. You can join the fun on the 13th and 14th April 2019, from 11h00-17h00 at the Perdeberg Winery, part of the Cape’s famous wine routes in Paarl and be a part of something special by dressing to the Purple and White dress code.
