“This is a great opportunity for wine lovers to experience not only different styles of pinotage as a red wine, and to compare those from Voor-Paardeberg to the Swartland, but also to see that pinotage has many other faces too,” said Vondeling co-owner Julian Johnsen, who produces his Rurale Blanc de Noir MCC from 100% pinotage.
The participating Paardeberg Country wineries are Ayama, Doran Vineyards, Dragonridge, Lammershoek, Perdeberg Cellars, Scali, hosts Vondeling Wines and Wightman & Sons.
There will be live music all day by Cherry Vinyl, plus food trucks offering gourmet hotdogs, tempura fish and chips, Asian burgers, pizzas, biltong, vegetarian options and some sweet cakes and cupcakes and aromatic coffees. Visitors will also be able to buy beautiful proteas farmed in the Paarl region and the Sunflower Fund will be selling their topes and bands of hope and providing information on their work in fighting life-threatening blood diseases like leukaemia.
The festival is on 12 October from 11am-5pm and tickets are R150 per person, which includes wine tasting of all the wines on show, a tasting glass and live music.
