From kudu to grass fed beef and chilli chicken to rooibos & honey; biltong is the one food item most South Africans don’t see themselves giving up, even when they emigrate!

Capetonians are invited to indulge in these SA  favourites  on Saturday, 22  April and Sunday, 23  April 2017 at the third annual Pinotage & Biltong Festival, which takes place at  L’Avenir Wine Estate just outside Stellenbosch from 11h00-17h00. 

Boschendal’s The Werf Butchery is bringing their Traditional Biltong and Droëwors to the event, with naturally produced interesting new flavours like Rooibos and Honey, Lemon Pepper and Herb Biltong and Smoked Paprika Droëwors making  up their selection.

Dad’s Choice Biltong and Braai is owned by Jannie Kotzé who personally visits his suppliers all over South Africa to choose the perfect products for his busy store in Somerset Mall and his mobile Biltong Bar which is a well-known sight at many big events around the Western Cape. Dad’s Choice is bringing their Lean and “Yellow Fat” Beef Biltong to the festival with Chutney Bacon, Chilli Chicken and Kudu Biltong rounding off the selection.

The biltong is paired with wines from some of South Africa’s top Pinotage producers for each tasting, including red, rosé’s, bubblies, blends and even a white Pinotage!

The participating wineries are:  Altydgedacht Estate, Anura Vineyards, Badsberg Wine Cellar Beyerskloof, Doolhof Wine Estate, Flagstone Winery, Kaapzicht Wine Estate, Knorhoek Wines, Lanzerac Wine Estate, L’Avenir Wine Estate, Leipzig Winery, Mellasat Vineyards, Namaqua Wines, Overhex Wines International, Perdeberg Wines, Simonsvlei Winery, Stellenbosch Vineyards, Vriesenhof Vineyards, Wellington Wines, Windmeul Kelder.

The event is family-friendly with live music, food trucks, light meals and casual seating under the trees next to the dam or on the lawns in front of the cellar. The charity beneficiary is Anna Foundation who will be present to entertain the kids and raise funds for their many worthy projects. Visit for more info.

Price: R200 pp includes a branded crystal wine glass and a pairing card for the Pinotage and Biltong tastings.
